@Duane: We are a tiny spec of dust to brushed off and never thought of again.

If you are trying to cheer me up, you aren't succeeding :-)

It's amazing to think that we are all formed from star dust.

My mother always used to tell me I was "special" (i took it as a complement :-)

If we are, in fact, alone in this universe, there are two ways to look at it. First, the way you concluded: "it would behoove us to take good care of each other and of the planet we call home"

From another perspective, in all of those trillions of stars out there, if we are alone, then we are such a small component of the whole as to be completely insignificant. We are a tiny spec of dust to brushed off and never thought of again.
