Nurtured by an intrinsic spirit of determination,
THE SEED has found its way out of its humble ground ---
out to survive, to flourish, to grow…
to be what it has to be:
This is ARBEX.
In these times of uncertainties, challenges beckon. The storms of hardships strike and the accompanying lightning pierce us to our very trunk. Heavy rains pour, shredding our fragile leaves, making us one time or another bereft of freshness, almost ready to crumble down.
Yet, we have stood the tests of time.
Because we believe that our branches, though broken, are the structural steel of our inner will. Our leaves, though stripped off one by one, only signify that in life, one step is followed by another.
Looking up to the sky, we may not be too high to behold; But always, we are guided by a VISION --- the vision of still being a tree of hope, service, and inspiration to our members and the BSP, even in the next tomorrow.
Ah, yes, like all other trees, our branches may be broken, our leaves wind-blown and wilted away…
But our roots will continuously ferret the ground. We will reach out for nourishment, so that whenever difficulties creep in our system, we will be revitalized anew. Yes, with faith and strength, we will grow.
AND OUR SPIRIT WILL LIVE ON…
