We have come a long way ...
  • "We have come a long way since 1898. We have learned well under the U.S. tutelage and have molded into our character the heritage of our past and present. We have nourished an appetite to live as a free people and enjoy the fruits of our labor as we continue to build Guam into a promising Pacific island community at the gateway to Asia.
  • We hold the self-evident truth that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
  • For the past 100 years we have nurtured the aspiration to be politically mature and treated with dignity and equality. We look forward to the day when we will be fully integrated into the American system of government.
  • The time has arrived for us to rally our people and take that first step to attain Statehood for Guam and assume our rightful place as Guamanian-Americans in the 21st century.
  • Guam ... the 51st state "where America's day begins."
