Hope for a world of unity,
one where strife is discarded
and our common humanity embraced.
Hope for equality of all people,
where each second is valued and is of value…
Hope that death is not the end
Hope that the artists will survive.

Love!

Allow to the peoples of the globe
To unite with a sense of common humanity.
Prove that music can be more than entertainment,
That art does exist among us.
Let art prosper.
Enable art to serve as more than a function,
As something that is not obligatory but something that is essential.
Revel in the intoxication that art can stir
Set aside and conventional theories about art.
Redefine what it means to be an artist
Let art prosper.

Ponder seriously about the effect of apathy
Feel sorry for the injustice,
Correct the misguided,
Remember the forgotten,
Consider the though-less,
Partake in nothing.

Feel the air.
See the invisible.
Face the Music
Everywhere.

Come from all points of the globe,
Perform common tasks,
Realize the mundane,
Watch birds,
Speak!
