— TO MY FRIENDS —
Our deep appreciation for all the efforts
of our members living in apartment and housing complexes,
who are truly taking the lead in making contributions to society,
living out their unique and noble missions right where they are!
Please shine like lighthouses of hope,
ever expanding the bonds that connect people!
