Challenge #2 Everybody wants to save the Earth

Challenge #2 Everybody wants to save the Earth
Photograph an image which exemplifies the essence of altruistic behavior.
— Steve McCurry

The idea behind this shot came from a quote by PJ O'Rourke "Everybody wants to save the world; nobody wants to help mom do the dishes". When you're a kid everything is much more black and white. You haven't yet learned that adults complicate the simplest of things. You truly believe that truth and right will prevail, that the bad guy will never win and you would give your friend the last rolo in the pack and not think twice. With love and a little luck you may even carry that unconscious selflessness into adulthood. Yes everybody does want to save the Earth. Just remember its also good to help your mum do the dishes.
