Salam to all,
As  I  am  standing  here  today  I  can  still  remember the first time I joined a Ladies Circle’s meeting ….
It was 14 years ago, I was a young girl and together with my sister Leila and   thanks to my hubby Hammadi, I discovered this women’s world called Ladies Circle….
Dynamic, free, motivated, passionate, positive, hard workers and confident women who since 2005 has taught me through their mottos that:
¨Life can be good with wonderful women in a wonderful world¨
You are special, so circle the world with color and enjoy life with the Golden touch of Circling.
You will never walk alone so fly so high with Ladies
Do it and make it happen because Sharing is Caring.
We are Many Hearts but One Spirit,
SO Put Your Heart Up and work hand in hand around the ladies flame to Encourage, Empower and Enjoy.
Keep smiling because We Are One.
Expand Your Angel Heart and let’s be happy Making a Difference through Acts of Kindness…
Be generous be a lady.
And now is my time to share with you MY motto….
Let’s have one vision, one dream…

I fell so blessed to be here today to celebrate with you the diamond anniversary year of our organization.
Sixty years ago, 3 countries Denmark, Sweden and GB&I, in whose symbolic light we stand today, draw up a constitution, based on equality of all Member Associations within an international structure called LCI.
Sixty years of love, sharing, traveling, working, laughing, fighting, helping and dreaming.
Thanks to all who made this possible.

I say to you today, my friends, so even if we accomplished so much yesterday and keep doing it today, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the LCI Visio :
I have a dream that one day this organization will shine up in the whole world and that all women and girls live the true meaning of our creed: “friendship and service.”
I have a dream that, one day; we will live in a world where we will not have difference between men and women, between people from different part of the world, between religions and believes. No one will be judged by their origins or believing but by the content of their character as in our organization.

I have a dream today.
I have a dream that each one of us remember that we have sisters and brothers all over the world. That each one of us knows that we have a home no matter where we go. That the way how we welcome our sisters and brothers are the way how we show them whom we are.

I have a dream today.
I have a dream that, this year, on the true meaning of side by side the 5 organizations will sit down together at the table of brotherhood and work more hand in hand to achieve the impossible.
I have a dream that in each part of the world where our association is based or not, in the 5 continents, people who are struggling injustice, ignorance, poverty will be transformed into persons with dignity. Knowledge and better lives, thanks to our involvement.
I have a dream that one day, charity march when you expand your angel hearts will be everyday of every month making difference with acts of kindness.
This is our hope. This is the faith I am standing up for circling. With this faith we will be able to shine beyond our borders. With this faith we will be able to transform the shadows of disharmony into a beautiful symphony of light and sisterhood. With this faith we will be able to dream together, to achieve together and to inspire each other’s forever.
