. . . . [...] No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause, we agree to recognise this singular truth, and this singular rule; That we must be kind to one another Because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one. . . . . . 23. Finnish. Female.
