    This video tells about how we perceive the importance of our lives. The author tries to convince the audience that, although we like to think about ourselves as generous, we don't give what is most important: a safe and bright future. We are just being convenient instead. The author would hope to inspire why it is of the highest importance to take steps to help our planet for the future generation.
