Forever thankful for that razor-thin atmosphere that makes our Blue Planet a place we can call home.  This night view of ancient lands and places so rich in art, history, architecture and literature stirs such emotion at the soul-level.  With the new dawn approaching, endless hope for peace and a better tomorrow.   Pacem in Terris…
