May God give us Ethiopians humble hearts, ready to listen and slow to take offense, ready to ask forgiveness and to give forgiveness, May God guide us as we seek to build a society where we uphold the humanity and value of all our people for none of us will be free until we all are free

The main message here is to encourage us, the people of Ethiopia to break down the barriers between all of our beautiful people from different ethnic and religious groups by starting to talk to each other rather than about each other.

How can we be more virtuous? How can we mend wounds between our people? How can we restore justice and truth? How can we first look at ourselves before accusing others? How can people of various religious backgrounds act as mobilizers of love, respect, truth, accountability and justice as expressions of faith in a God who seeks a reconciled relationship; not only with oneself, but with our neighbors?

May God give us Ethiopians humble hearts, ready to listen and slow to take offense, ready to ask forgiveness and to give forgiveness.

May God guide us as we seek to build a society where we uphold the humanity and value of all our people for none of us will be free until we all are free
