It's easy to take for granted. But every day would be completely dark, cold and dreary without it. As a matter of fact, the nations of the world would panic (and probably not survive for very long). I'm talking about the sun, that massive star in our solar system which appears on a daily basis as the earth rotates on its axis. The sun is absolutely huge, approximately 2,715,395 miles in diameter (over 1 million times larger than the earth). In regards to distance, it is 93 million miles from the earth. As a result, it takes about 8 minutes for light to travel from the sun to our planet. Unfortunately, it is speculated that the sun may eventually burn itself out. However, gratefully, this probably will not occur for another 5 billion years.
So, for now, the sun is a great thing to have around. It will certainly last for generations and generations to come.
Hence, we need to take advantage of our glowing friend. We need to walk in the sunlight, enjoy the growth of trees and flowers due to its warmth and light, and basically soak it in (without overdoing it and leading to sunburn).
Are you cold? Get out in the sun. Dreary or depressed? A little sunlight should help. Sickly? Let the sunshine in. Consequently, as long as it is shining, the sun does us all a world of good.
