100 word story
They say stone has no feelings. It is hard, durable and everlasting. Mountains stand proud, gazing at the world from high above. Formed by heat and compression, and altered by lava, in time stone breaks down into rocks and pebbles, and reaches the waters. Tremors of Gaia and erosion by wind and rain sculpt the peaks through a slow process of softening the sharp edges, while the soil created gives life to their surfaces, helping the stones hold onto their roots.
Humanity exists like mountains, rocks and pebbles, enduring the changes of crisis and evolution, shaping the story of mankind.
