Long ago the poets conceived a flower that never faded: the amaranth. The name is rooted in the Greek words amarantos, meaning "immortal" or "unfading," and anthos, meaning "flower."  The word amaranthine emerged as an adjective of the imaginary flower and anything possessing its undying quality.

In a time like this, it’s interesting to see how nature can remain neutral and be unaware of the challenges we face as a society. But nature never stands still.

Even during crisis, it seems that nature is capable of nursing and nurturing itself back to health. We as a society can look at nature and learn from its resilience and interdependence.

Together, we are capable to deal with hardships and support each other. Only then, we’re able to blossom like an unfading flower.
