Sharks and perspective

I saw this factoid about sharks at an aquarium we visited recently.

Apologies for the dark photo (underground). It read – Are the sharks dangerous for our divers?

No. They’re actually very cautious around divers – as they should be. Humans kill more than 100 million sharks every year. Sharks kill about 5 humans every year.

The combination of the stats, the image, and the way it all came together made me pause and think about the power of perspective.

It was powerful, humorous, and poignant.
