We will soon focus on new actions
and efforts that will be required,
in the New Year to change things for the better.

While there is still hope we will not give up hoping,
and we will continue to insist
that the old and bad things step away and let in new alternatives,
to shape a better environment

They will not silence our voices
and we will continue to fight,
until we succeed in providing Personal Assistance for all in need.

Of course, we wish that every single individual
fulfils their private wishes for the future as well.

We wish you a happy holiday and a happy new year 2013!
