Overview

The first time they saw it, separated from its shell, nineteen hundred and sixty six. A jewel filled with light, hovering above the desolate moon in an endless expanse of night. Our home, unveiled. Polarizing the nations, giving them dreams of going beyond the shelter that grounds are being. Igniting an new era of possibilities, inviting any who would dare to take the steps needed. Yet the image can do more, it can erase all the boundaries, all the conflicts that divide. Giving us hope that we will see that we are all connected, not just to each other, but everything that surrounds. While illuminating the imperative truth of protecting, what protects us so well.
