I wrote this song after being inspired by the experiences of astronauts who had been to the moon and shared their perspectives looking back at earth. Across the board, they all speak of a unity which can be an important reminder in today's world. "The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us." - Donald Williams.
