“ Let’s be equal, and just free-

Free to dream and free to dare,
Free to love and free to care.
Let’s be equal, free and just unified in love and trust:
Strong to lend the weak a hand,
Strong to assist and understand,
Strong to create a happier land.
Let’s be equal, free and just unified in love and trust.”
