Our oceans are precious. And today, on World Oceans Day, we celebrate them. We all need to pause today and thank the oceans for the food that we eat; oxygen we breathe; medicines they provide (both discovered and undiscovered); the marvelous marine life that delights us; recreation in the form of surfing, diving and sailing; and their stunning, breathtaking beauty.
The oceans have calmed me and excited me. They represent open space and discovery and exploration. Places far beyond. Today and every day, I am so grateful for our oceans.
