The Miracle of Life

I woke up this morning and sat on the couch. While eating Fruit Loops and watching CNN I let my mind wander a little bit. One of the things I thought about was the miracle of life.

The point I am trying to make is that life is so precious. Humans only live on average about 70-75 years. When one compares it to the length of the existence of the planet, that's a minor blink. Yet at the same time, humans are able to do so much in such a short time. A person can become leader of the free world. Another person can almost destroy democracy for a whole continent. Individuals can invent technologies that save millions of lives or destroy the planet in a blink. There is just so much potential within each and every one of us. And there are times I wake up in the morning, and I am overly impressed and awed by it.
