    Before you start agreeing with the group, take a quick look in the mirror!

    Look ahead... See the Future
    Look Behind... See the Past
    Look Arouband.....See Creation
    Look Up...... And See God's handiwork, ..items who's light isn't rtraching us after a 600 BILLION Light year journey, ....see planets,... galaxies made of billions of stars.....nebulae..fields of has that are becoming new planets, ...supernovae, exploding dying stars pulsars, quasars, gamma ray bursts, all things that occurred millions of light years awy, and, oh yeah... the occasional shooting star.......And it makes you realize just how really miniscule we actually are, and how petty the differences that we choose to dwell and harp on really don't add up to a small pile of grains of sand.

    Interesting to me when I saw this because I always thought I was the only one who called Artificial Christmas Trees “Fake Trees”. Guess not. :)
