for the soul

During interludes in the day-long virtual NEAF event, they played a video feature showing past luminaries at the exposition.

One of the speakers was Joe Rao, a multi-Emmy nominated broadcast meteorologist and author. They quoted him and I thought his remark amazing. It seems particularly poignant given our current situation.
Everybody may not be a chemist, everybody may not be a geologist or a mathematician, but everybody may be, and aught to be, in a modest personal way, an astronomer, for stargazing is a great medicine for the soul.
We need all the help we can get.
