Writer’s Quote Wednesday – One World

010516_2129_writersquot1To continue with the theme of many of the previous quotes that I have contributed to to Silver Threading’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday and Ronovan WritesBeWoW (Be Writing on Wednesday), I offer these words from the Saudi Arabian astronaut, Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud.

Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud

The first day or so we all pointed to our countries.
The third or fourth day we were pointing to our continents.
By the fifth day, we were aware of only one Earth.”
Sultan bin Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud

    I love this quote, Lance. It truly shows that we ARE just one people. Can you imagine the enormity of that feeling he must have had gazing upon the earth from space? What a great perspective! ❤

    Beautiful quote, and a great reminder that at the end of the day, our different nationalities don’t matter. We’re all from Earth.
