Empire StateBuilding From NJ
Image via Wikipedia

I remember standing on the observation deck of the Empire State Building as a sophomore in high school very clearly. I remember that the cars looked like ants.  Eight million ant like people hurrying home after a busy day,completely oblivious to 30 curious tourists so far above them. Years after that trip I am amazed at how narrow and subjective the human concept of reality is, to the commuters driving home we did not exist.  To the few of us looking down on them that night, all those people were nothing more than specks of light, no more important to us than dust motes floating by. I caution against that mindset because if we start thinking of each other that way we will  become lower life forms..  Someone once said, “be kind to everyone you meet, you never know who is fighting a great battle.”
