You are the stars and the world is watching you. By your presence you send a message to every village, every city, every nation; a message of hope. A message of victory.
The right to play on any playing field, you have earned it.
The right to study in any school, you have earned it.
The right to hold a job, you have earned it.
The right to be anyone’s neighbor, you have earned it.
