The hope of a new day

This morning is a gift.

Every morning you have another chance.

Sometimes you do nothing,

sometimes you get lucky and the day shines on you

but how often do you seize the day with your hands and make it your own?

This morning may we wake up to this new day and this life with each other

and try to build a dream.

As we live this day

let us be aware of all those people across the face of the world,

those in cities, those in deserts, those on mountains, those in ships or planes

who, as the sun rises, will be waking up to the hope of a new day.
