People of Orak

What now is the basis of our hope? What is the reason of our belief? A faith that we hold in common, in common as we stand hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder in the mist of the living world of today.

Our hope, belief, and faith is that, the best crop of any oasis consists of it's men and women, the best things produced by any oasis are the people on it.

The most valuable asset of Orak Shrine is not human wealth, but human beings. The mightiest of material things vanish from sight in an hour, but humanity lives.

The greatest of all great things that an oasis can grow are great men, not great men in mere intellect, not men great in mere mechanic skill, not men great in the possession of mere knowledge, but men who are great in having large hearts and kind natures.

For the fruits of the Oasis of Orak, is a desire fit our talents for human service. So look to the left, look to the right, behold the key to the future of Orak, hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder the heart beat of the Oasis of Orak, The People, Brothers and Sisters, past, present, and future.
