Today I want to laugh. I want to laugh like a flower in the spring.
I want to laugh so that the world laughs with me. Today I want to live with the whole world like a sister, like a daughter, like a mother. Like the truth of real life.
Today I do not want to hear the word World, but Home. Today I want to bring the whole world together like one home.
Today I want to live with my sisters and brothers together. Today I want to see love among my family.
Today, today I want to see that all my family thinks about each other’s difficulties. Today I want my family to sit together and solve their problems.
Today I want them to act like the good people they are. Today I want them to pass the exam of friendship and love.
Today I want them to not think about themselves but their family.
Today I want my siblings to be proud of who they are.
Today! Today! I want them all to unite!
