It’s love from within my heart for this gor­geous land I proudly call, home!

EGO - - Column -

ous ex­pe­ri­ences in this coun­try and how much it has given back to me; the joy­ous, suc­cess­ful times that I hold pre­ciously in mind. I be­lieve no words can de­scribe or do jus­tice to ev­ery­thing this land has given to all of us and truly, it’s raised its sta­tus in ev­ery­one’s minds.

The land of the UAE is one with rich her­itage, not just of hos­pi­tal­ity and amaz­ing cul­ture, but truly good peo­ple. Peo­ple, who have big hearts - ready to em­brace any­one and ev­ery­one, peo­ple who live be­yond worldly bound­aries and peo­ple who are hard­work­ing and com­pas­sion­ate. The UAE is no mere em­blem or an­them. It is a story, a be­ing. It is a home­land and a land that has man­aged to win hearts, re­spect and trust. We will carry our dreams and wishes for this land, prais­ing its suc­cess from the past and dream­ing for a won­drous to­mor­row full of as­pi­ra­tions and achieve­ments.

All of this said, this oc­ca­sion of the 45th Na­tional day of the UAE brings a lot more. With all my prayers and best wishes to this land, I am only look­ing for­ward to mak­ing many more beau­ti­ful mem­o­ries here. As the rulers of this land surely stand proud of their hard work and suc­cess, we all should pledge to work to­gether, to col­lab­o­rate for a brighter fu­ture. With com­pas­sion­ate hearts and ob­ser­vant, learn­ing eyes, we can to­gether be an ex­am­ple for ev­ery­one around.

My heart is filled with so much joy ev­ery Na­tional Day… I pray and wish this coun­try the best and I hope I can give back some of what it has given me.
