We wish every family to be united, parental love to be steady through dedication.

We wish the social relationship to be friendly, the goal of effective communication and reciprocal assistance to be reached through affinities.

We wish a harmonious society to be achieved, everyone enjoy his proper place through tolerance.

We wish the environment to be civilized and mutual appreciation to be strengthened through respect.

We wish a peaceful world to be realized, all enemies to be converted into friends through sharing."
