We search for life on other planets and in other regions of our galaxy. Meanwhile, we destroy and ignore the other life on this planet.
This is a sad but true fact. Why do we search for more when we ignore the beauty before us? Do we really think that we will care for whatever we discover any better than we care for what we have? No we won’t. But it will be exciting though. It’s the thrill of the unknown and not actually the discovery that we are after as a society. We need to care for what we have before taking on the unknown.
