The Earth is 4,6 billion years old. Humanity exists for over 200,000 years. Through the years we have evolved, we have changed our ways, we have created, invented and destroyed. If the time period was scaled to 46 years, humans have been on earth only 4 hours and in that time we have destroyed more than half of The Earth’s forests. This makes us look like a deadly virus doesn’t it?
However, we are not all that bad. There are humans that made the world a better place and it is disrespectful to put them in the same bag as the ones who are destroying it.
The actions of these individuals will restore your faith in humanity. We should be thankful there are still people who are able to remind us that there is good in this world.
No matter what we believe in, what we compete for, how different we look and what side we stand on we are always going to be brothers and sisters. When we get rid of greed, ego and fear, all we truly want deep inside is to see each other happy.
These images will show you individuals that should represent what humanity really is.
