THE COURAGE
AND JOY
SUMMER
1. THE COURAGE WE TAKE TODAY MAKES OUR JOYFUL TOMORROWS
Our courage begins in our daily steps.
Each day, we practice our courage to act, to not turn away, and to dare.
Future challenges don’t dampen our courage.
Our courage sleeps within each one of us, ready to be roused up.
We take heart from the thought that tomorrow, like our courage, is in our own hands.
2. OUR COLLECTIVE JOY IS THE POWER WE SHARE
Joy is the power that inspires us and encourages us to grow.
We take joy not only in ourselves but in others.
We take joy in the Ukrainians’ victories and our undivided support for their cause.
We are joyful to strive and to learn.
Sorrow shared is halved but joy shared is doubled.
3. COURAGE AND JOY ARE BORN WHEN WE MEET
We feel courage and joy when we meet one another.
We overcome our reclusive ways and open up to new friendships.
We defend others in their fights for freedom, as we know that these are our fights too.
We move closer to one another so that we move closer towards a joyful future.
At the end of Riga's summer of courage and joy - on August 20 - the Riga birthday picnic will take place in the heart of the capital. We will work on our courage and smile muscles together in creative and exciting events. Let's make the most gorgeous birthday ever by gathering around long, wonderful celebration tables and enjoy a delicacy we made ourselves, just like on a birthday. Let's have a party so that there will be something to remember and look forward to!
For the first time, the Riga cultural program will be actively held in the city's neighborhoods - Āgenskalns, Imanta, Bolderāja, Purvciems un Pļavnieki, Maskavas Forštate and Vecmīlgrāvis. Everyone is invited to joyfully celebrate, rejoice and enjoy the long summer days by visiting one of these new and yet unexperienced neighborhoods.
