In the "three emotions” of human beings, love witn esses happiness,
affection maintain s family, and friendship links one's career and the common destiny of human society. Friendship is undoubtedly the emotional foundat10n of the great harmony world that mankind yearns for. When ”Men from all overthe world are broth ers" , the world will surely achieve the dream of mankind.
The holy land of Nishan i s a vast land of rites. Today, standing in the holy land, we feel the praise of the ancient sages for the friendship between human beings, and listen to the voice of the Chinese nation for a community of shared future for mankind . From the goodwill of "what a pleasure to have friends coming from afar" to the mind of "he kind to others and expand the circle of friends”，thi s coming and going, across the ancient space time collision , all represent the pursuit of pe1fection soul of human beings.
Return to the starting point of history and stand at the height of the future. The idea of ”everyone is friend and all things together” advocated by World Friends Day is exactly the same as following the pa st and learnin g the present.
The idea of World Friends Day was initiated in Fushun, China and established by World Folklore Culture Assembly (Sydney) ; From the birth of World Friends Day in Fiji on September 9, 2016 to the successful holdin g of the second , third and fourth World Friends Day in Zimbabwe, Malaysia and Australia in 2017 , 2018 and 2019. The theme of Praise Friendship, Plant Friendship, Convey Friendship and Shar e Friendship has been sung all over the world, and the two platforms of cultural and arti stic exchange and economic and trade negotiation and cooperation have been blooming with the unremittm g pur suit of human spiritu al and material civilization .
Great planet grows great life, great life creates great civilization, great c1v 1lization will brew beautiful emotion. Startmg from the love between men and women, human beings have created a family relationship that 1s closely related to each oth凹 and then moves toward s the society and becomes a warm friendship. This expandin g path of human affection also shows the trend of human emotion.We believe that ”Everyone is Friend and All Things Together" is not only the yearning of human beings, but also the destination and future of human emotions.
Friend is not the exclusive property of human beings, but also the mterdependence of human beings and other forms of life, even more the mutual knowledge between human beings and all things. Benevolence i s invincible, life is connected, and nature and man are one. Let us link each other with friendship, link all beings with friendship, and link the nature with friendship.
Gold, wood , water，fire and earth, the five elements is a cycle and continue to grow. When the fifth World Friends Day is tied to this holy land , it has also completed a sell cycle, and the five elements return to the earth. This is a return, a trace and a new start.
On the road to the future，if human beings choose to be self hostile or lose the awe of other life and nature, we will be no difference from choosing suicide and death.
With the holin ess of friendship, with the wisdom of the sage, with the smcenty of the heart. LPt us be friend with people, with life, with all things and with the world. From here, the World Friends Day will start again to promot e cultural exchanges between countri es, strength en economic coopera tion , harmoni ze the feelings of people of all ethmc groups, and promote world peace and development in the form of normaliz ed, thematic and diversified activities.
Let's pray for the earth home together! Pray for us and all life in the earth home! Pray for mountains, rivers and everything in the earth home!
Long live my friend! Friendship Forever'
