BTS have once again spoken to the United Nations at the 75th UN General Assembly as part of their partnership with UNICEF and the Love Myself campaign. The septet was invited by Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security to send a message of hope which was broadcast around the world. Each member gave empowering speeches surrounding their experience with the global pandemic and how they took a step back to find hope and shared comforting words to their fans and young people around the world.
Like anything BTS says, there’s always inspiration and empowerment which ARMY can always turn to. With this year being a challenge for many of us, it’s important to look for the positives and inspiration. We’ve pulled out some of the best quotes from the speech that you can turn to when in time of need.
“If I give up here, I’m not the star of my life.” – Kim Taehyung
“Yesterday, I was singing and dancing with fans around the world, and now my world had shrunk into a room. And then, my friends took my hand. We comforted each other and talked about what we could do together.” – Park Jimin
“One night we were working together, RM said he couldn’t see the stars anymore, but I saw my face reflected in the window. I saw all of our faces. If our voices can give strength to people, then that’s what we want and that’s what we’ll keep on doing.” – Jeon Jungkook
“Our lives are unpredictable. We don’t know all the answers. I know where I wanted to go but not how I could get there. All I can do was to trust ourselves, do my best, and love what I do.” – Jung Hoseok
“The room itself was small but my world and our world reached far and wide. In this world, we had our instruments, our phones, and our fans.” – Min Yoongi
“Stars shine brightest when the night is darkest, and the night is always the darkest before the first light of dawn. If the stars are hidden, we’ll let the moonlight guide us. Even if the moon is dark, let our faces be the light that helps us find our way.” – Kim Namjoon
“We must cherish the importance of ‘me,’ ‘you’ and ‘us’.” – Kim Seokjin
“Life goes on. Let’s live on.” – BTS
We are so proud of BTS and feel so empowered and moved by their speech once again.
