Earth: Hit the reset button?


The gigantic asteroid didn't hit Earth yesterday, nor was it expected to, but the sci-fi lover in me allowed my imagination to go far, far into another galaxy.

If the asteroid had hit, wiping out much of Earth, it would be an astonishing reset button for our planet which might need a rest from overcrowding, pollution, global warming.

Just a thought. And a reminder we all come and go, but Earth has survived. We should look to her for some survival lessons.
