"Watch this billion-year journey of Earth's Tectonic Plates" video from the New York Times.
We think of the continents as fixed. We think the U.S. is so very far from Africa, Australia, Japan, Germany... But tectonic plates have shifted every major land mass across the oceans all around the planet since the dawn of time, and are still.Yellowstone’s geysers shift constantly because the land is always moving relative to the geological heat vents below.Think about that!
Viewed from space, there are no countries, no Democrats, no Republicans... just land, floating in water, clouds drifting by... and the living Earth with all her inhabitants on a perfect orbit around the sun.
Breathe in, breathe out.
We’re in this together.We can find peace together.I wish you peace this beautiful day.
