why am i here?2009 10 27
in the search for meaning and understanding there is no greater challenge for anyone than to spend a lifetime trying to answer the question:
why am I here?
Carl Sagan, Professor, Leader in Science and Human Exploration & Pulitzer Prize winning author, spent his life deciphering this question and connecting us to the Cosmos in ways previously unimagined and unexplored. His creativity, his unending scientific curiosity and ability to inspire others has effected millions worldwide.
Recently, iTunes has released his beautiful series Cosmos. I am watching it again for the first time in many years. It brings tears to my eyes. The music of Vangelis is timeless and haunting. It’s amazing to think that this series is over 25+ years old. I cannot wait to watch it with my daughter.
He reminds me of the awesome potential we have as a species that is often left unrealized.
I credit Carl Sagan for my keen interest in Science, my belief and connection to the natural world and Cosmos, and most pertinently, my obsessive desire to help others discover their potential.
