The fundamental question in any organism's life varies, but it is normally where is food?. One of the few variations to this rule is the human being. In a way, on this planet it is our job to ask why. Why does the sun rise and set? Why do leaves change to scarlet and gold sometimes-or perhaps, sometimes turn green? Why do we fear? But most of all, why are we here? Why have humans been placed on this earth? I believe that there is a God, and He gave us this world to prove ourselves and gain eternal life. Some believe we evolved from monkeys, but most don't trouble their minds with it. I believe that that is one of the worst kinds of ignorance there is, to not have a sense of wonder and curiousity. So next time you see a mountain standing tall or a river gliding by, ask yourself why.
