Let's take our babies home and abide by the curfew. I want to thank you for understanding that we want to bring peace.
This celebration here tells me that this work is not hopeless. I thank you for this teaching with all my heart and lift my glass to human solidarity, to the ultimate victory of knowledge, peace, good-will and understanding.
Thank you for life, and all the little ups and downs that make it worth living.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
You are precious.
