You and I, we're
not so different.

We're both here, firmly planted on spaceship earth, while it goes about its business chasing the moon. You dream, love, hurt, adventure - all as I do. To meet you is to meet myself, and to serve you is the same.

Let's live generous lives for one another. Let's adjust the rules of today to create a better tomorrow. Let's pledge our allegiance to humanity, empathy, and understanding.

Let's plant trees so our children can rest in the shade.

Nice to meet you
