Blessed are those who take risks and are true to their visions, for their lives shall be rich and rewarding.

Blessed are those who dare to swim upstream, to be different in a way that inspires others to embrace positive change, for they are the trailblazers and pioneers required to heal the earth.

Blessed are those who melt weapons and all other machines of strife and transform them into solar panels and windmills. They shall be known as earth's healers.
