Remembrance: A Journey of Awakening

Manisha Holm

Remembrance chronicles the journey of 108 humans who travel across the galaxy to colonize a new planet called Airon. Upon arriving, the colonists, known as The 108, discover a world filled with wonders beyond imagination. The planet is inhabited by two indigenous species, the gentle, burrowing Narsis and the graceful, flying Eglans, who have lived in harmony for eons.

As The 108 establish themselves in this new home, their very presence tilts the natural balance between the native inhabitants. Cultural misunderstandings lead to rising tensions, culminating in a crisis that threatens the very fabric of life on Airon.

Despite their advanced technology, The 108 find themselves powerless in the face of this alien culture. Led by courage and insight, the Earthens come to realize that their usual strategy of exerting control is futile. Survival on Airon requires surrendering to the mystery and choosing cooperation over domination.

Through trust and openness, Earthen and Aironian learn from each other, blending their disparate worldviews into a broader understanding. Bonds form as all gain insight into their shared essence. What began in confusion, moves through turmoil, and concludes in tranquility, with the promise of a new society built on cooperation, forged from the union of two worlds.

Remembrance is a thoughtful exploration of humanity's eternal quest for place and purpose. It reminds us that wisdom is found by seeking unity rather than supremacy. This character-driven tale manages to be both profoundly moving and light-hearted, leaving the reader awestruck at the power of love to heal division.
