The River of AMID - A short story

Some say it started in the South, some indicate it started in the North. Where the mountains’ height tops the Kilimanjaro, and the rivers’ currents are as strong as the Waal. The origin can be questioned.

Some paths have been rockier while other seem smoother. Despite all differences, all streams intersect at this given moment. Our shared values, open mind and passions bring us together.

It is in these moments that we feel truly connected. Every day we face new ebbs and flows and every day we learn. We share our excitement for this new era, while we have yet to explore what brings us joy.

Sometimes we drift away in the chaos and our uncertainties, while we discover what we need to set course in this complicated field. Shaping our own rivers is what provides us satisfaction.

As we all look for opportunities to find new ways, and make the steps needed towards a more sustainable and equitable world. As this gives us purpose and energy to become change agents.
