French:

“Voici le jour où les plus précieuses faveurs [de Dieu] ont été prodiguées aux hommes, [voici] le jour où sa puissante grâce a imprégné toutes les choses créées.
Il incombe à tous les peuples du monde de concilier leurs différends. et de se ranger, unis dans la paix la plus parfaite, à l’ombre de l’arbre de sa providence et de sa tendre bonté.”

– Baha’u’llah

English:

“This is the Day in which God’s most excellent favors have been poured out upon men, the Day in which His most mighty grace hath been infused into all created things. It is incumbent upon all the peoples of the world to reconcile their differences, and, with perfect unity and peace, abide beneath the shadow of the Tree of His care and loving-kindness.”
– Baha’u’llah

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
