Happy Founders Day

November 17, 2014

To Omega Men around the world,

Happy Founders Day my Brothers! We are blessed to be members of the greatest organization in the world! We must give thanks to our Founders for having the courage, knowledge, wisdom, and vision to start an organization which will last forever. It is our charge to follow the road map that they put in place for us. Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift are our principles by which we must live. Our motto, "Friendship Is Essential to the Soul," will provide us with the quality of life. "Your joys shall be my joys."

Brothers as we celebrate, think about how blessed we are to continue carrying out the Mission of our great Fraternity. Today, and every day, we pay homage to Brothers Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper, Frank Coleman and Ernest E. Just for the privileges that we have been given. If they were here today I believe they would tell us to bind ourselves together as one so that we will have that exponential impact to lead our communities, our country and this world through whatever challenges there may be or are yet to come. We Are One!

Long live the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., and may God Bless us all!

Happy Founders Day!
