When I think of the word humanity, I think of caring for other people even if it doesn't benefit you. The photo was taken in the bedroom of a young boy looking outside of his window. It is part of every kid's childhood to be able to go outside and have fun. Meanwhile being in a global pandemic it's much harder to be able to get out of the house and be outside. It's the humanity in the little boy to stay inside and try his best to keep people around him safe even though it does not benefit him. Instead, he sits looking out of a window daydreaming about what it would be like to go have fun outside again.

This image of pine trees, burned in the California Creek Fire, made for a very spooky, sorrow-filled picture. Each of the charred trees made me think about all of the life lost throughout the forest. The worst part is knowing how many people in the Shaver area lost their homes, and more importantly all of the memories. This picture represents humanity because the tragedy of the Creek Fire resulted in so many homes lost, lives changed, and trees burned to a black crisp.

Standing on the top of Echo Summit in the California Sierra Mountains feels like you’re on top of the world. Most of us young people are concerned about our shared home, Planet Earth. This planet is the perfect place for all of humanity to survive. Unfortunately, places in our world have become polluted, over excavated and drained to where it will not support life anymore. We need to keep our home, Planet Earth, healthy for all of humanity to survive.

I hiked to this spot overlooking Echo Summit in January 2021 to create this image. This is 5 individual vertical photos stitched together in Photoshop into one high resolution panorama.

What could be more iconic of the best of humanity than the Madonna and Child? Or, as in this the Grandmother and Child. For me the best traits of humanity are manifest in the love, care and nurturing we give our children.

What this photo represents to me is everything that's happening right now and Black Lives Matter.

This picture was taken in my house with my mom and sister. My mom put a bandaid on my sister’s knee because she had a cut. She was crying so my mom put a heart on the bandaid. She loves my sister and me. My mom shows her love by doing nice things for us. I love my sister because we talk, play games and I read to her.

Throughout the pandemic, there has been a lack of humanity. Everyone has to stay at home and many everyday activities have been cut from our life. We can’t see our friends or even our family. Because of this challenging time, we need to do online school for the sake of our health. So, this photo represents what students go through everyday. Looking at a bright screen for long periods of time without any in-person interaction with friends.

Twenty-twenty was not the year we were hoping it to be. We went from being somewhat kind to one another to having hate. We went from wanting to stay indoors and ignoring what we once had to long for - the days we can go outside and hug our family. We went from a long spring break to being quarantined for almost a year. Stores and schools were suddenly closed and the number of cases was doing nothing but increasing.

The public panicked more than they had ever. Halloween wasn’t Halloween, Thanksgiving wasn’t Thanksgiving, Christmas wasn’t Christmas, and the New year just didn’t seem as exciting as it used to be. We all lost motivation and the desire to do our everyday tasks.

3, 2, 1, Happy New Year! What seemed so far away has finally come - 2021, the year where so many people wished to be better. Stores started to open up and some people were being called back into work. Cases of the virus that has locked us up started to go down. Sadly the hatred in the world has still carried on.

Here we see a man that was captured looking out into the distance at a sunset with his eyes and stare full of hope. Hopeful that the world can become a loving place. Hopeful that each person in this world will accept people for who they are and see them for what they are which is a human being the same as you and me. Hopeful that we don’t judge people by their skin, gender, sexual orientation, sexuality, race, ethnicity, religion, and so much more. Hopeful that we learn to appreciate the little things we have. Hopeful that we live in the moment and create the best memories. Hopeful that we take care of our world because it’s the place we were given to take care of.

The man with the hopeful stare knows this day will come. All it takes is for one person to take that first step and the rest will follow the right path.
