Ah, if the greed were not there, think how many glorious natural resources would be still wandering around. Lovely.

Traditional Apaches are born with the obligation to make the earth a better place for their GRANDchildren to live, but most people today believe it is best to plunder resources before the next person and leave grandchildren to fend for themselves. As were are already pooping plastic, I would not want to be my grandchild! Best chance with this one! Aloha! Rico

Hi Jan, I totally agree. Man is destroying the earth for money. But I have question? Once the earth it totally destroyed, where will live? Good take on the contest theme. I wish you the best of luck in the contest:-) Alexis
