For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
― Nelson Mandela

Tata, we will honour the gift of freedom that you gave us by respecting the freedom of others.

Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all. Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all. Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul have been freed to fulfill themselves.
