Nature and the Human Spirit
Immediately stepping into The Butterfly Exhibit, you are immersed into their world, one that we are a part of but might not realize until it is right in front of you. Inside the butterfly exhibit, there's a sense of peace and serenity that flows throughout the air created by the presence of nature -- the trees, the butterflies, the birds, the water, the fish. You step into the exhibit and truly appreciate their presence unlike what we do in our normal everyday lives. As college students, our days are so filled with classes, jobs, extracurricular activities, etc. that we sort of go about our day oblivious to what is going on around us -- it has become our ordinary life, what is normal to us. Walking into this museum, and furthermore this exhibit, truly allowed me to take a step back and truly appreciate my environment and the beauty in it rather than brushing past it. This not only allows us to better understand who we are as a person when we come to realize the peace and serenity one can simply receive from the world around us, but it allows us to better understand how we all fit together in nature, how we all coexist and contribute to the world we live in today.
