As we think about the serious problems in our society...we know that there is still hope for us, the youth of Belize, to rise above all the problems that surround us. Even as this flag will rise into the dark night sky, we also can raise above these destructive forces. But we must hold onto the principles of peace and goodwill, honesty, hard work, moral cleanness, integrity of character, and respect of God and godly things. We must hold onto our families. We must hold onto the teachings of Jesus Christ..."
