I can’t think of a better time for a Roddenberry quote. As the genius behind Star Trek, he always had a positive spin on mankind’s future, something we could use right now.
It would have been his birthday today. I’m almost glad he’s not here to see how far we’ve strayed from his vision:
“If we cannot learn to actually enjoy our differences on this planet, then we do not deserve to go into space and meet the diversity that is almost certain out there.”
He believed we would.
