Life is like being on a river.
We don't get to choose which river
but we drift along it.

At times the river is calm
and moves forward at a good pace.
The scenery around the river is breathtakingly beautiful.

But sometimes the river can be treacherous and wild.
A dangerous waterfall looms ahead.
We can feel totally helpless and powerless.

If there is a life-saving branch,
grab onto it
and cling onto it for safety.

In the end, we all get to meet the sea.
