• in our 6th EXO millennium •

Today is yours, our dear Chen. Today we honor you on your 27th birthday! We are once again so proud of what you have accomplished this year in your current and future solo endeavors and alongside the members as the opening of 2018 has brought a reenergized, and fresh energy.
Dear Chen, our radiant sunshine, our diligent scholar, our humble philanthropist. When one thinks of you, they think not only of your dazzling smile, your heartfelt laughter, or your incredible talents as an stunning vocalist, a perceptive lyricist, a dedicated dancer, and a passionate team mate of one of the greatest entertainer ensembles that has continued to defy the odds since its debut. One also thinks of your commitment to giving joy, and hope, of sharing the very idea of possibility, potential, and opportunity for others through charitable offerings. Colloquially you are known to us as the charity fairy, and the causes to which you give have inspired so many of us to match the sincerity of your endeavors. Witnessing the way you patiently care for our members, staff, and anyone with whom you’ve come into contact is truly galvanizing. Indeed your deeds are our spark, our kinesthetic call to action, to be more, to be greater, to think not only of ourselves but what we can give to others.
You embody the principle that love is the currency that is most precious. Love for self. Love for family. Love for close friends. Love for coworkers, for team mates. Love for human kind. Love of creation. Love for the arts. Love for learning, and the acquisition of knowledge. Love for the greatest good. You teach us that once gained that this commodity should be shared willingly, and that as we share that we conduct a dynamic flow of the highest order of love.
You once said that, “even though the language is different, the music is the same.” Even though our worlds are different, our experiences, our hurts, our pains, our needs, our dreams, we can still come together, and share love. We can still find commonality in love. And when we are brave enough to look beyond coveting love for ourselves only, we open ourselves to a world more hopeful, and a self more powerful in inspiring change, and bringing about true peace. When all throughout the world we can find friends, and those for which we have common ground, everything becomes much brighter. The future is still latent with possibilities. And that is a dream worth striving for.
We hope to honor your commitment to the sustaining of life’s potential by reaching out to connect with one another in order to pass along this positive electric pulse of love. We hope to lead by example, and by deferential, compassionate deeds, as you do Chen. Let us continue to harvest a greater compassionate love for all.
Let our relationship of continued support and enduring love continue to strengthen as we continue our journey together. May you continue to be blessed in this new year and may you also be blessed with many more exhilarating years of happiness, and mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, and vocal health.
