The Cape Verdean Promise sign now

Noticing the talent that runs through our CV veins as if it were instinctual, effortlessly easing the troubles of your day, I felt compelled to write this promise. As naturally as a blink or a breath, Cape Verdean talent is starting to be one of international recognition and is snowballing very quickly.
It does not matter what Island one comes from, because our stories are similar and valuable to the whole story. We will unite around the fact we have our own government, our own language, our own music, our own cuisine, and our own country.
It does not matter what country our families relocated to, we are still family. It does not matter if you do not speak the language; we still love you and the many tones of skin we posses will be recognized as the poster child for world peace and racial harmony!!
We as Cape Verdeans do recognize that our differences through out the Diasporas are not weaknesses but a unique powerful untapped resource that we vow to utilize.
We as Cape Verdeans recognize the contributions we as a people make/made to many other established countries whether it be from free institutional labor or the instinctual hospitable acts of sharing what we have to offer.
We as Cape Verdeans pledge to love one another not only with a smile or hand shake but with acts of kindness. We are aware of the danger our culture is in and are willing to do what needs to be done to preserve it. We as Cape Verdeans recognize that the only way to preserve our culture is to maintain a nonviolent way of life, support all of our artists to the best of our abilities, support each others businesses and to be proactive in aiding our country of Cape Verde. Another way we will proactively preserve our culture is to attain duel citizenship and get involved in the political process by voting with absentee ballots.
We as Cape Verdeans recognize that there is good and bad in everyone and negative propaganda has been used as a weapon for character assassination against Cape Verdeans in America. We vow to reverse this by utilizing our networks to show the world the great contributions being made on a daily basis by Cape Verdeans.
We understand that independence only being a couple of generations ago, God isnt done with us and we have much work to do to come into our own as a people.
We (Cape Verdean men) vow to LOVE and RESPECT our woman and children by teaching and practicing family morals as well as the whole compass.
We (Cape Verdean women) will recognize this respect in our men as strength and not a weakness as we know it is the harder thing to do, but the right one.
We as Cape Verdeans would like to make a pledge to all of our artists, whether they be a singer, actor, poet, model, dancer, visual artist, filmmaker, athlete and/or any other form of the many valuable artistic contributions to financially support you.
Last but not least, we hope and pray the positive affect our pledge has on us becomes infectious around the globe, as other peace movements influenced us.
