Thats all we have

On February 14, 1990, The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth made by Voyager 1 from a record distance, showing it against the vastness of space. Carl Sagan gives the distance as 3.7 billion miles in the book, while NASA website describes it as "more than 4 billion miles" (6.4 billion kilometres). The picture was taken using a narrow-angle camera at 32° above the ecliptic, and created using blue, green, and violet filters.

Now to think of it, all our individual unhappiness, success, struggles, wars, politics, corruption, career, industry, poverty, fame, movies, love, relationships, hatred, greed, every emotion. When I look at this picture, Every emotion of society, and possibility of our life all seems so insignificant. I mean we are almost equal to nothing.
As Al Gore says, "thats all we have"....
To add I feel, we are already an endangered planet, almost extinct race, our life and our civilization is just a dot in the sky.
