Imagine: A day will come when those who have the power to destroy the world suddenly feel a transformational shift in their hearts to save the world.
Believe: A day will come when every heart on earth opens to the healing energy of love, kindness, compassion, empathy, diversity celebration and peace.
Dream: A day will come when no one is ever judged again based on their color, race, religion, creed, nationality, gender, age, ability, social status or sexual orientation.
Trust: A day will come when we see each other through the warm eyes of love.
Rejoice: A day will come when the Statue of Liberty stands tall once again and greets all humanity back to its shores with love.
Envision: A day will come when the world chooses to cooperate, collaborate, and do what is best for the well-being of the collective whole.
Care: A day will come when we realize how important it is to stop our busy lives and listen to each other’s feelings, thoughts and life experiences without judgment. We will simply listen from a place of love.
Visualize: A day will come when conflicts are resolved through nonviolent solutions, empathic listening, common ground compromise, and the healing power of love.
Celebrate: A day will come when a healing light shines through and around mother earth and the whole world makes a conscious decision to stand for love, unity, justice, equality and peace.
