Pueblo di Korsou: Masha Masha Pabien!

People of Curacao: Heartfelt congratulations!

A new journey has started on a route never taken before. Let us all take pride in our heritage and let us embrace our new country and mix the two with love and respect. We should value diversity and show respect for each other’s traditions. Together, we can build a nation, our nation. To do so we will need to build bridges, not divisions.

The task of building a nation with freedom, opportunity and justice for all is a great endeavor that has to include us all. All our citizens are needed; everyone has something to offer. Every single citizen is important, everyone is special, and shall be included. We are one people. There is plenty of room for all of us. Let us inspire, strengthen, and encourage one another to bring out the best in us.

Education is one of the most important foundations for building a strong and vibrant nation. Our education system should offer equal opportunities for success to all.

Though there may be many challenges on the way, together I am sure we will succeed!
