Wars are fought over boundaries that
have been created in the name of politics,
religion, race or beliefs. But the view from space reveals
the true nature of our cosmic home—
a border less planet divided only into land and sea.
Boundaries vanish when we look skyward.
We all share the same sky
ONE PEOPLE, ONE SKY
