Salutation #73

If you love something, make sure you can defend it.

(Peace is Prologue)

These were the days,
my brothers and sisters of the Promise,
when our nation was still a leading light in our region -
those days have now passed away into today
when all seem dark and the night is deep...

But you know now as well as I do
that the 'morrow for our land is not so far away
- each of us know it by heart how to get there -
what we must decide upon today is how to get there
- together this time.

For there is no getting into the morning
for our Land of the Morning - without unity -
and this unity is our peace
- a pledge to both heaven and earth -
that we belong.
