‘For All Our Failings, Despite Our Limitations and Fallibilities, We Humans Are Capable of Greatness’

Today seems like the right time to relink this wonderful short film by Michael Marantz, based on an excerpt from Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot. (Thanks to Chris Henslin for the suggestion.)

As I watched, my wife was in the next room helping our son count past 200, higher than he’d ever counted before.
