Cooperate with others and establish harmonious relations with people regardless of ethnicity, gender, or age.

Do everything you can to stop the misuse of our natural resources and the senseless destruction of our environment. With ethical discernment, you -the youth of today- can create prosperity for the world and humankind. Otherwise our future is bleak “
