The Garden of Friendship was formed with a vision,
a vision where men and women come together, form
friendships, build on each other's weaknesses,
thrive on each other's strengths, and move forward
to improve ourselves and help others, making the
world a happier place.
As humans, we all have weaknesses and
insecurities. As a group, we have the power to
overcome these uncertainties building confidence
through the support of others. We have the ability
to thrive and rise to the top.
Time is of the essence, and life is too short for
us to spend time dwelling where we feel we are
incapable or inadequate. We must learn to better
ourselves and live each day as though it were our
last. We should always strive to leave footprints
on the hearts of those we touch, leaving happy
We must be careful with our words, yet remain
truthful. We must take the time to think before we
speak as an innocent remark can often leave an
emotional scar on a wounded heart. Our actions
should always be backed by love and we should
always treat others as we would want to be treated
ourselves. One of our goals should be to always
leave smiles behind us as we travel down the path
We will not show prejudices nor will we
discriminate. We must reach out and help others,
particularly those less fortunate than we are.
This may be done through a smile, a kind word, a
gentle touch, a listening ear, or a shoulder to cry
on. Just remember, a bridge would fall without
proper support, as would we.
Earn trust through speaking the truth, as trust is
one of life's most precious gifts, and once trust
if violated, the structure of the friendship is
weakened, sometimes impossible to mend.
