Story Written in the First Person Perspective

It all started with a single visionary idea: to unite people across the globe, demanding AI safety awareness and transformative change from the institutions that hold so much power. As we stood outside the United Nations Headquarters, banners held high, I witnessed the power of collective action.

The rallies spread from city to city, with more people joining our cause each day. We made our message impossible to ignore, and international organizations began to implement AI safety measures, acknowledging the pressing need for action.
