It's the time of year when a virtual library cat senses that the stress of finishing papers and facing exams is taking its toll. Sometimes a shift of perspective can help. One of the best ways to get a different take on the importance of law school and lawyers is to spend less than six minutes watching this wonderful video with movie clips, Carl Sagan, and music--The Pale Blue Dot. Here is our planet and all that goes on here, viewed by the Voyager 1 astronauts from the edge of our solar system, nearly 4 billion miles away, juxtaposed with the world's momentous moments from our everyday point of view. A hat tip to Futurelawyer blog for pointing us in this direction.
