Declaration of Principles of the Interstellar Alliance

The Universe speaks in many languages,
but only one voice.
The language is not Narn, or Human, or Centauri,
  or Gaim or Minbari.
It speaks in the language of hope
It speaks in the language of trust
It speaks in the language of strength
  and the language of compassion
It is the language of the heart
  and the language of the soul
But always, it is the same voice
It is the voice of our ancestors,
  speaking through us,
And the voice of our inheritors,
  waiting to be born
It is the small, still voice that says:
We are one
  No matter the blood
  No matter the skin
  No matter the world
  No matter the star
We are one
  No matter the pain
  No matter the darkness
  No matter the loss
  No matter the fear
We are one.
Here, gathered together in common cause.
We agree to recognize this singular truth
  and this singular rule:
That we must be kind to one another
  because each voice enriches us and ennobles us
  and each voice lost diminishes us
We are the voice of the Universe,
  the soul of creation,
  the fire that will light the way to a better future
We are one
We are One.
