“For small creatures such as we the vastness is bearable only through love.”
As the Vogons take control of the US government, there is a vastness we are facing. That vastness may seem frightening, and it should, it is the dark divide between reason and the lack thereof; but we need not fear…..we have love.
We have love and we have the passion to raise our voices. We have science, logic, and the will to see them benefit all mankind. We can still make this planet a better place, despite the ignorance and hate, despite pettiness and Twitter, despite corporate interests and Honey Boo-Boo as the Secretary of State, and Kardashians in Congress…..we have love.
It’s our sacred duty to uphold our principles now more than ever before in the history of our Pale Blue Dot. We must practice kindness in all we do, and always be excellent to each other. We must demand the celebration of infinite diversity in infinite combinations, and build no walls between us literal or figurative. We must never be cruel or cowardly, we must never give up, and never give in…..we have love.
Don’t Panic! My friends, and froods, and folks; we have love, and love is all you need. (well, Love and your towel, but that’s all we need. Maybe a few beers too, so love, your towel, and beer, that’s all we need.)
Galactic Hitchhikers, it’s time to shine. Hold your heads and towels high, let’s unite under our absorbent banners and tell the people of Earth: WE HAVE LOVE!
**Love and Towels- remind yourself today not to panic, take your towel to work with you. Get a self and hashtag #LoveAndTowels **
