To whom it may concern

Give me the fortitude to change what I can change;

And to accept what I can’t.

To love myself and others unconditionally;

And show understanding and compassion to all equally.


To work to serve, and preserve all life;

And the systems that support it.

To look after myself so that I may look after mankind;

And the universal family that is life.


To never give in to doubt and fear;

And strive to be the best I can be.  

To love and honour those that came before me;

And to build a better world for those who come after.
