Hail You Awesome Humans
Brilliant and daring, your lives come to me. I am your world, come, look and see. The wonders of nature, the wonders of space, come all you humans, look at my face.
I’m here in the clouds, fleeting across the sky, I’m here in the waters, the plants, the rocks, the life forms. Come to me, oh lovely ones, come to my world. To an adventure with purpose, exciting and thrilling. This great fabulous place, is a playground in space. Stretch your arms, stretch your legs, stretch your minds and your bodies, fill your space. The universe is immense, it’s so grand and enticing. Star gaze with wonder at brilliant outer space.
You live in a tiny, dream filled world, where planetary delight unfolds before you. You live in that luscious, luxurious space, a planet so intriguing, it’s filled with boundless energy and creativity. Joy of living, in the songs of birds, joy of living in the beauty of flowers, joy of living in this precious place. A planet, tiny and remote, in great outer space. Come, oh curious ones, come with me, come into my garden and look for me. A tiny bug, a bursting plant, a smile on the face of a welcoming person. Come to the garden of earthly delights, rest, relax and marvel at the wondrous sight. I made all of this for you to explore. Come out and play and adventure some more. When you learn about my world, you look for me, I am this world, I’m everything you see.
The day turns to night, darkness descends, the brilliant night life is looming above. Stars and clusters, moons and galaxies, the endless wonder of the universe reaches out to you. Day becomes night and the world is new. Adventure never ceases, it always calls you. Navigate with the stars, find your constellation, let the dreamy world of the heavens incite your imagination. Books and knowledge, wisdom and learning, a world of never ending fascination, greets your searching. Curiosity is key, it propels your mind, search and keep searching, seek and maybe find. The joy of discovery of worlds new to you, of spacemen and aliens, of galaxies and stars. The world of fascination, of spellbinding interest, of unusual, of challenging, of differences of things. When the world becomes casual, humdrum and boring, look to the heavens for a world worth exploring. Put on your space suites, your helmets and air tanks, hop into your rockets and fasten your seat belts. The search is on, for a world filled with wonder. Fabulous, marvelous, brilliant for you. Now, you’ve found me and I know you.

Hail Brave hearts!
This glorious day of the risen lord brings peace and hope to a weary world.
The earth moans under the weight of 7 billion humans. All of the rest of its creation needs room to grow. Room for trees and plants and landscapes, room for animals and birds and insects. The awesome creative powers of the planet need to be expressed. Like the fine aptitude of an artist, needing to paint a brilliant canvas, the earth needs to cover it’s surfaces with beauty and colour and life. Awesome great planet with life giving forces. The beautiful great planet surrounds us with nature. Each and every delicate balance, a life sustaining act. The trees, recycling the carbon dioxide of our breaths and returning fresh, clean oxygen into the air. The trees, our life support system for clean air. 7 billion breathing humans, destroying forests, up routing plants, filling in ponds, covering the earth with pavement, building, building, building.
Hail, you awesome human! The earth struggles to support you, struggles to feed and nurture you, struggles to provide air for you, clean water and good food. The self destructive human, unthinking in it’s quest for income, housing and land, destroys the very thing that provides the most. Hail, to the almighty human, who protects the only thing that we have in the universe, the mighty great planet earth.
So much taken for granted, so much destroyed for no reason, so much loss of habitat and loss of life, human, wildlife, plant life. From the tops of the mountains to the depth of the oceans, the environmental destruction is severe.
In myth, the world of the gods lies in the heavens, in science fiction aliens inhabit other planets. In reality, will that save us here. The awesome mind of science tells us that there is a possibility of life on other planets. The constant search of the heavens and the universe for life sustaining planets, challenges us to think outside of this small, rotating sphere of life and look to the possibilities of new life among the stars. Our imagination takes us in leaps of wonder and anticipation. Could it be real? Could we live somewhere else? What would it be like?
Now,at last, there is a possibility. An earth like planet, found only 500 light years away. We could escape this rotting, dying, war torn, diseased, overpopulated earth and escape into our spaceships and be gone! Gone to the heavens, gone to the perils of the universe, into the last great frontier of human experience. We’ve done it all here. The dying planet entertains us no more.
Off to the greatest challenge of our lives! Off to discover the universe and inhabit the new world. Like our ancestors before us, the age of discovery is upon us. Like Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Francis Drake and the Apollo Astronauts, we can pack our bags and venture forth again. Into the great unknown, to prove that the universe is not flat, but we can navigate it and we will not fall off.
Hail, to you almighty human! Flee the dying planet and explore the universe. You only have 500 light years to go.
