I am one with my father and the universe. I am one with mother earth. I am one with everyone within the reach of my voice. And, in this togetherness, we ask the divine intelligence to eradicate all negatives from our hearts, from our minds, from our words, and from our actions. And so be it. ”

— Babatunde Blatunji - 1927-2003
