Change Agent: The Man Behind HIV's Demise

It is impossible to know when epiphanies happen, especially when trying to be detected from a third party.  Likely, it was not even such an event.  I truly think it was encapsulated within, a seed in a vault not given an opportunity to become something beautiful, a gift to the ecosystem, sacrificing itself for the nutrient of everything it could come in contact with.  But for me, the flowering moment happened when we attended a Peace Corps sponsored event in Lusaka learning about Grass Roots Soccer (GRS), an interactive outreach program to teach youths about HIV/AIDS. 

Waves of Inspiration

It oozes from every breath. Why, then, does it fade- inspiration?

 

I remember the feeling because it is incredibly evocative.  Like the joy people feel when receiving a gift of kindness.  It is, unfortunately, a seemingly diminishing exchange between two people; the receiver overwhelmed with gratitude, eyes lit up from excitement, laughs full of meaning- maybe mixed with emotions of love; the giver looking onward in anticipation, an idea delivered, a human emanating acceptance.
