Thank you all for coming to this historic Second Keren High School Reunion. Thank you honorable guests! Let’s give them a round of applause. Thank you spouses and children for sharing this great day with us; we wouldn’t have done it without you and your support. Please help me in giving them a round of applause. Special thanks go to our youth who volunteered to be part of all the discussion of this reunion. Thank you friends for coming here to share our joy. Keren High School alumni, this is the day you were all waiting for. It is your day and I am confident that you will have the best day of your lives!!

Many of us live in USA and Canda, 2 countries which are celebrating Independence Day as we speak. Eritrea observed its Independence Day not long ago. So, I would like to say "Happy Independence Day to all of us."
