Nature vs Nurture

My friend Morag, in Edinburgh, sent me this video yesterday.  It's an advertisement for a program by Sir David Attenborough on BBC One.  No one does the natural world as well as this man, and the tiny glimpse he gives us into that world is...breathtaking.

I'm not sure why it made me cry, though I've been known to weep at nature's beauty--a realm so often exploited by political machination, destroyed by greed, buried under dogma.  Sadly, our planet would be better off without the madness inherent in our humanity.
Take a moment and marvel at this amazing place we call home.  Maybe someday we'll actually learn how to appreciate and care for it...
Or maybe that forlorn hope is really the cause of my tears.
