    This is a great piece that resonates with me and reflect on. For the first narrative, I grow up poor and am able to make my way to a comfortable living, thinking that everyone has equal opportunity to do as well and better. That turns out to be true for many but for reasons that elude me why not the vast majority. As a life learner, my cumulative learning fromworld history, economics, sociology and the leaders around the world led me to conclude on the second narrative while there is a chance for the third narrative. Learning from my years of volunteering in multiple organizations and roles, and the current world situation do not give me high hope of the second narrative would turn to the third in my life time.
    The third narrative requires the whole chain of stakeholders in vast majority to take responsible actions instead of playing politics. Climate Change has been a well researched topic for the last forty years. UN SDG framework has been in place since 2015. I am still hopeful, looking at the glass half full with the framework, processes and tools available for world and organization leaders to adapt in their respective entities.
