Life is not given to us to suffer and wail, life is given for standing upright on your own two feet. For supporting those who are weaker than you, and to accept help from those who are greater than you. For keeping your own tribe and pride. Only when “me” becomes “us” can we stand strong. Together. Shoulder to shoulder, back to back!

Our people at home - we bow deeply before you, it is your support and care that keeps our shoulders straight!
