All of us are part of something bigger than us-
Something of greater importance,
Something of greater necessity
Than our mundane lives.

Your knowledge, experiences, beliefs, and values
form your unique cultural identity and
self-definition.

You are a crucial individual
For your contributions
Shape the world.

We must understand,
As a society built from integrity,
That each individual enriches our lives
Through the diversity of their cultures.

We must recognize the strengths
Of the various cultures of the world
For that is the key to unlocking
The value of life.

We stand united
For our acceptance and understanding
Of shared values
Fosters our cooperation.

Let us work hand in hand
To express our gratitude
And make the world a better place.

Let us join hands around the world
To embrace and celebrate
Our world of cultural diversity.
