Gravity is an attractive force between two
objects. The larger the objects are, the stronger
the attraction is. Since the earth is so large,
it strongly attracts everything that is near it,
including you! You are actually being
attracted to the center of the earth, but since
you can’t pass through the earth itself to reach
the center, you remain on the ground. When you
fall, you are really just moving a little closer
to the center of the earth, pulled by the
attraction of gravity.
