One World with many nations. Multitudes of people remain strangers amongst themselves. The knowledgebase is vast, but most have problems disliking  each other, it is however very important to understand the world in which we live in for the good of all. The world is full of islands. Each have their own different rules, values, cultures and languages. This intangible wealth could be easily acquired through teaching, speaking and sharing, one can have an understanding of the other. The strength of unity will lead the nation. The family is the starting point of caring, understanding, loving and helping each other. Though there are differences among each person, with togetherness, we can find beliefs which will strengthen our lives. This unity makes the world go round.

I minigai-na na nasion taotao gi un mundo gi papa' i langhet ti tufungon para u ma tungo' i minegai lengguahi ni' guaha. Ha ridondeha hao yan guahu yan todu i nasion ni' hinengge ya fitme yanggen mandanna' para i minaolek i mangokkokolo' na hinirasion, ya este, i famagu'on-ta ni' manasaga gi Un Mundo, Un Isla, Un Familia.

The different nations are in one world under the vast universe and there are   countless many languages to learn. Many different beliefs surround you and me and all the nation, whereupon you may draw the strength of unity for the good of our future generations, and that is, your descendents who live in One World, One Island, One Family. This is the uniqueness of each and everyone of us. Though we live in this World, this Island, this Family, each one is unique, and that is the reality of your World, your Island, your Family. It is you, your unique self, your self identity in this vast, complex society that makes up the personalities we live in. For us, it is the Chamorros, for others, it is their very own identities. The foundation of Unity, lies in the uniqueness of all and all for One.
