Blip

By Dr. Steven Eisenberg

Blip

Earth.

You live here.

We all do.

For now.

Our third rock is 4.5 billion years old. 

You live life here.

Say you live to 100 years.

That would be quite an accomplishment.

You should be healthy at 100.

Now let's calculate a fraction.

One hundred over 4.5 billion.

100/4,500,000,000.

0.000002% of Earth's existence.

A blip.

I'm insignificant.

You too.

Yet, we break down in our traffic.

Waiting in our lines.

At restaurant servers.

Earthly concerns.

All of it.

Insignificant.

You get 0.000002% of our planet's time.

Blip.

There's only one thing to do.

One thing you can do.

One thing that makes any difference.

Love.
