We have been on a long journey,
the road has been long and difficult at times,
and it is time to make it better.
We can heal our senses
and transform them into our best friends
and constant companions;
We can reclaim the joy and peace
that is our human heritage.
We can become examples for others
who are lonely and isolated,
vulnerable to frustration and pain.
