I promise... to think before I speak.

To be wary of who I give my energy to.

Because it is needed for a cause,

greater than my own pride.

And that cause is to spread the enlightenment

of love, compassion, and humanity

to those who are not touched by its light.

I stand to focus myself

in the betterment of my fellow being.

Why? 'Cause we are brothers and sisters,

each and every one of us.

I promise to love my enemy

and to never become that which is not God.

♪♪♪

I stand to protect what is good

and what is fair and what is righteous.

Every day I'm alive, I am given the opportunity

to become that which I admire most in others.

I am nonviolent.

I am a master student.

And my spirit...

ain't never gonna be stomped out!

[ Cheers and applause ]

I am dedicated to oppose those whose will it is to divide us

and keep us in the dark ages of fear.

I have an opportunity to speak for those who go unheard

And protect those who carry a message

of peace, of love, and of prosperity.

Why? 'Cause we're all brothers and sisters.

It's been said before, but it bears repeating.

And it will always bear repeating.

And that's what we're gonna do. Why?

'Cause I love you. You're my brothers and sisters.

[ Cheers and applause ]

At the core of each and every one of us,

we want the same things.

I want to give you those things.

I want you to give me those things in return.
