Last week I watched an Episode of “60 Minutes” in which two female astronomers described the astounding amount of information coming back to us on Earth through the Hubble Telescope from the myriad of stars and galaxies in outer space. “Light comes to us from a time before Earth was even here, “said Amber Straughn. The images captured on Hubble “open the door” to shed light on something that is now dead. They remind us that we exist in a vast field of birth, being, and dying. And we marvel.
When we record our family histories with color and depth and accuracy, are we not the Hubble for generations yet unborn who will look at us—stars who died long ago—and marvel at what they see?
This family history month, capture the images and words of your family. Be the Hubble for future generations.
