What is belief? Is it only Associated with religion? What about New York? Parents? Love? Is Belief necessary?
The system of belief. Most religion works based on belief. One of the duties as a Muslim is to believe in Allah, Allah's prophets and Angels. Even though most Muslims will never see them. We are asked to believe in them. And I certainly a huge number of people do. We believe.

These are just my views and what I have observed out in the world.

We have seen time and time again parent's turn into superhumans especially when their kid is in danger. I believe it's the belief of their kid, being the most precious being in the universe.
I think it's the hope in people that makes them in this. Many business people start businesses because they want to create something which will outlive our tiny human life span. Everyone wants to be part of something which will outlive them.
Pale Blue Dot
Oddly enough this reminds me of the Pale Blue Dot image, and those few immortal Carl Sagen words. In the vastness of the ever-expanding universe, we are nothing but a speck of dust, suspended in the air. Within a blink of an eye, we will be forgotten.
Believe Makes people be better. It forces people to cross the limit they set for themselves. Than their
