When I Am Afraid

When I am afraid, I remember: 

America is a blip in human history,

Humans are a blip in Earth’s history,

Earth is a blip in this Galaxy,

And this Galaxy is a blip in the Universe.

This helps to calm me, and it gives me perspective and hope,

No matter what I’m facing on a personal or collective level. 

And I’m grateful for great friends who help remind me of these things along the journey.
