Futurama’s ending was beautiful.
Because it didn’t just show us the beauty of a lifetime of love and happiness.
It also showed us the beauty of the world and universe we lived in. The snowflake whose individuality you can’t see. The sunset you take for granted every day. The splendorous waterfalls that are natural works of art. The resplendence of people living their lives. The awe-inspiring vastness of our cosmos. And, the simple pleasures that we can find right in our backyard.
So Futurama, thank you. Thank you for letting me realize what growing up had made me forgotten. I am going out today, instead of staying on my computer watching cartoons, and I am going to experience the beauty the world has to offer. I’m going to chase those butterflies again. I’m going to sleep beneath a tree in the park and listen to the birds sing. I’m going to plant a tree and hope it grows into a symbol of hope. I’m doing to experience the miracle of two people in love.
I’m going to live, like Fry and Leela did.
