Greetings. I have been on your planet for centuries. Like you I am carbon based, I have two eyes like you. I have two hands and ten fingers just like you. In many ways we are alike, but unlike you I know my true worth. I am always strong, as is my entire family. I do not suffer from jealousy or hard-headedness, but you seldom give me respect. So go ahead Earthling, hit me, throw me away, do what you will. At least recognize me.
