Hail, oh brilliant ones!
The morning shines with light and warmth, the shadows of the darkness pass. Into this world comes the strong passion of the rising soul. Now, another day, another quest, another memory. Each day lived brings us closer to the cause. To peace, security, life and prosperity. The greatest achievement in the minds of mankind. To build a nation and to be one.
To be one with the land, to be one with the people, to join in a massive undertaking of privilege and success. To be the ones who made it real, to set the stage of your own destiny, to carve footsteps for others to follow, to be the unbeatable champion. Rise all of you. Rise to glory. It is with duty that you come forward, but it is glory that you aspire to. Rise, oh champions. This is your day.
This day, of setting the boundaries, of felling trees, of building dwellings. This day of toil, of laborious, hard work, of companionship, of perspective and perseverance. This is a day of duty, of care, of obligations. This is just another day, way out there.
Way out across the ocean in a land of newness and wild. The great wild. So tempting and so secretive, so majestic and so dangerous. In unison they toil and in unison they strive, to build a fortress of security to protect themselves, shelter, and keep them, in this brave new world.
The great wild is lurking, we hear the howls in the night. The barks of canine species as they call. The hoots and coos, of the unknown, the swirling flight of night creatures, the croaks and chorus of singing sounds, the eyes of creatures in the dark. The night in the forest, so loud and alive, as hunting and singing and playing rings in our ears and the watchful wild stare in the dark, lurking and forbidding us to trespass. The night sky, a shining mass of stars and the brightness of the moon casts shadows across the grass. The insects sing in a deafening crescendo and the sounds of the night in the forest fill their dreams and disturb a restful sleep. The wild, so haunting and forbidding, so silent and so eerie.
But the test for a colony comes from adaptability, foresight, ingenuity and preparedness. The strength to carry on. The ability to survive. Good leadership, sound judgement, skills and ability. Determination.

Here, in the wild frontier of Canada, where hope and dreams and dares and challenges fill their every day, comes the human of fortitude. An illustrious European, with desires of grandeur, with minds focused on a colony, with dreams of prosperity. Persevere, oh great ones. All is for fame, for fortune and for us. It is for a place in history and a place for you. A new world!
Oh awesome human, venture forth. To a new world! To a new beginning!
