First Words on Mars

I saw a question by a Facebook friend asking if you were hired to write two to three sentences for the first person on Mars to say, what would they be? Somebody then linked to an article about the BBC basically asking the same thing. The BBC said that it would take a minimum of three minutes for the message to reach earth and it could take up to a maximum of twenty minutes, so in essence, those words would be uttered silently. Which ones do you like or do you have another suggestion? (Things in parentheses are not said, they are just commentary).
