I think we have a little bit of time,, with that said, how many here are aware of the fact that the Andromeda galaxy is speeding toward our galaxy, the Milky Way, at 200,000 miles per hour.
It will basically destroy the Milky Way, and suck most of it into the black hole in the center of the Andromeda galaxy.
Mind you it is 2.2 million light-years.. but it shows that everything you see around you is not for ever. The trees, lush fields, lakes, the vibrant colors.. it's so temporary in the grand scheme of things and how lucky we are to experience this now, in our lifetime.
