It’s a pleasure to be part of this sharing success ceremony with so many families and friends and especially our friend honorable Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist and Honorable Senator Sylvia Santana
Congratulations Senator Santana!
Congratulations for being a great success story!
A great lady, a great leader, a great mom and a great community member.
I have seen you so many times attending the community’s events both at times of happiness and sadness, grief and relief. You never waited for an invitation to attend an assembly assisting the community causes.
We appreciate your hard work and humbleness and will continue to support you with our prayer and participation.
My prayer today is to ask the Lord to bless you with the continuity of your successful journey
You have been successful with your sincerity and services
Successful with your outreach and actions
Successful with practicing what you preach and walking your talks.
Successful with wining the hearts and minds before winning the votes!
Obviously this journey will never be free of struggles! Free of personal and political obstacles!
May the God of glory and wisdom, peace and power, love and justice, strengthen your vision, courage, confidence, dedication and determination to continue your hard work to defend our democracy, freedom, and civil rights.
May God keep you strong and energized in your fight against poverty, racism, injustice, ignorance, extremism, and other evils.
O Lord bless Senator Sylvia Santana and make her new term in the Michigan Senate, a new chapter of victory and success in serving our state, our country, and humanity!
It’s been said: If you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far go together.
O Lord help us to stay together and work together at all times.
