    If we follow core principles of common good, we should quickly arrive at shared vision of future of Latvia - Levits

    RIGA, Nov 18 (LETA) - If we all follow the core principles of common good, solidarity and fairness, we should quickly arrive at a shared vision of the future of Latvia, said Latvian President Egils Levits in his address by the Freedom Monument today.

    Levits said that together with Latvia we have entered the second century of our state. Timeline of each family and past generations of our families is firmly set in the past century and will continue into the next.

    "State of Latvia is the thread that binds the Latvian nation together and makes our past, present and future meaningful. As our state enters its second century, we will be living in the world that we are creating today. What will it look like? That will depend on how bold our dreams and strong our commitment to fulfil them are. How well we spot future trends and avoid wasting our efforts on insignificant details. How dedicated we are to ensuring the future continuity of our state and nation, common good for the whole society and, thus, decent life for every one of us," the president said.

    Levits underscored that all citizens must collectively take care of their state. Democracy means that each of us has shared responsibility for the state of Latvia. Each of us can and is welcome to make Latvia better and more advanced.

    "If we all follow the core principles of common good, solidarity and fairness, we should quickly arrive at a shared vision of the future of Latvia. We all agree that Latvia should become a prosperous and safe Nordic country. Solidarity is an intrinsic characteristic of Nordic countries. Solidarity has enormous power. It creates a supportive environment where everyone can reach their life goals. State, undoubtedly, must provide a social solidarity framework. However, Nordic countries succeeded not only because of common good but also strong moral compass of each member of society. Personal values like honesty, tolerance, mutual respect and working together," he said. 

    "We are ready to make Latvia better, ready to take care of it. Ready to defend it. Ready to stand up for it. We feel we have common fate with Latvia whether we are here or connected by invisible ties from afar. All people are equal. All places in Latvia are equal.  Let us enjoy togetherness. As individuals and nation as a whole," the president said.
