"With broken pieces you cannot do anything with that, but when you surrender your life to God is when miracles can happen. I'm still without arms and legs but don't need arms and legs, I need purpose, joy and peace in my soul," said Vujicic.

Knowing that happiness does not come from money, Nick said he is rich because God is with him and he is happy.

Nick stressed that one's true value is not determined by how others think of him or her. He said we are valuable as we are created by God. He also urged parents of the nation to sow seeds of hope to their next generation, with faith and love so that a better community and a better nation can be forged.
