You and I we meet as strangers
Each carrying a mystery within us.
I cannot say who you are;
I may never know completely,
But I trust that you are a person in your own right,
Possessed of a beauty and value that are the Earth’s richest treasures.
So I make this promise to you:
I will impose no identities upon you, but will invite you
To become yourself without shame or fear.
I will hold open a space for you in the World
And allow your right to fill it with an authentic vocation and purpose.
For as long as your search takes, you have my loyalty.
