The Convention that cares about human dignity must be drafted, but it must not be done using any forms of power or authority. Regardless of the country or generation, the law that protects and promises to end all wars must be prioritized at an international level. The enactment of the Convention is a crucial step in obtaining world peace.” After Chairman Lee’s rousing speech, all justices signed an agreement pledging to support the International Convention on the Renunciation and Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts.
On the second day in Kosovo, Chairman Man Hee Lee met with President Atifete Jahjaga, the first female President of Kosovo. President Jahjaga is highly esteemed for her leadership among women and youth’s empowerment and interfaith dialogue to reach out to minority communities in Kosovo.
What terrifies us is the fact that our children may encounter the same suffering and pains. Those brutal acts should never be repeated and passed down to them. We absolutely have to stop handing down the atrocities of war. Women and youth are uniting and raising their voices to help the implementation of the Convention on the Cessation of War. I firmly believe that when leaders around the world empathize and put themselves in the shoes of others in the name of peace, achieving peace is not a distant dream.”
President Jahjaga was impressed with Chairman ManHeeLee and Chairwoman effort that she decided to establish a HWPL peace park and a peace monument in Kosovo to support HWPL’s global peace initiatives. Currently, HWPL and IWPG members are working tirelessly to implement the Convention and leading the way to support women, youth, and interfaith peace activities worldwide, including various volunteer services, academic education, and the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office meetings. Peace is possible.
