The Declaration of World Peace
-HWPL Man Hee Lee Chairman-
The Heavens and the Earth formed by the hands of the Creator have been given to humanity as an inheritance. In all the universe, life in its vast splendour exists only on our world.
The life that grows on the earth is sustained from above—by light, rain, and air provided unconditionally to all living beings. We have received the precious gift of life from above, let us give glory to heaven and live in peace on earth. This is the truest teaching of heaven.
With this eternal gift—the grace and life we have received—are we entitled to fight, kill and destroy one another? We cannot claim to desire peace and continue to provoke one another, causing conflict for the sake of valuing our own national interests above those of others. This will only take the lives of the youth, wasting them in the futility of war. This is not a legacy we can leave to future generations. Of what use is a young life, born in our day and age, if it is thrown away in this manner—thrown away without having had a chance to bloom? What price can compensate for the loss of a life? Do these young souls have another chance at life?
As emissaries of world peace, as people who are working towards the restoration of humanity through a new and heavenly culture, we declare the following:
We call on the heads of state of every country to sign an international agreement—a commitment to bring all wars to an end. We ask them to do this from a spirit of deep—seated love for the people of their country.
|Man Hee Lee 'the Declaration of World Peace'|
Furthermore, we call on every person, every man, woman, and child in the world, to pick up the mantle of peace. In whatever way you can, we ask that you work to further the cause of world peace and restoration, making it a reality in your direct environments.
Lastly, we call on the media to report responsibly and promote a message of peace to the world.
With this declaration, the work of world peace has begun.
