"Technology has Destroyed the Luring Beauty of Nature" by Amanda Merritt, 11th grade

"My father took this picture of me when we took a family trip to Lake Lanier on Mother's Day. This picture represents a generation full of adolescent people who pay too much attention to the piece of metal in their hand, and not enough to the beautiful masterpiece of the world around them. Let this picture be a sign of the change we need in this world." -Amanda Merritt
