”man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to the Earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free. Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction — up, down, sideways – by merely flipping his hand. Under water, man becomes an archangel.”
World Oceans Day is observed to remind people of the importance of the oceans in our daily lives. They function as our planet’s lungs, supplying the majority of the oxygen we take in.
