"Favela On the Water" – Liselle Milazzo
Amazon River, Manaus, Brazil
This is one of the many of slums in Manaus, yet at first glance it looks beautiful, colorful and exotic. It's only when you really study the picture do you begin to see the deplorable conditions. Global citizenship means that we have a responsibility not to see what we want to see, but to see what is actually before us.

"Remember the Past" – Carolyn Fritz
Terezín, Czech Republic
While in Prague, my friends and I made it a point to visit one of the concentration camps used by the Nazis during the holocaust. It is a day and an experience which will remain with me for the rest of my life. This photo is of the cemetery for all the people killed in the concentration camp within the town. For me, this photo demonstrates that as global citizens, it is our responsibility to seek out the past, no matter how horrific it is, in order to remember, learn and grow from our mistakes as humans.
