Man Hee Lee Peace Speech

Speech of Peace of Man Hee Lee, HWPL Chairman

3rd HWPL International Law 
Peace Committee Meeting

<Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL>

Today is a special day for humanity and the earth.

All of us were born into this generation, so we are one family of peace.

Sharing the same vision of creating peace.

The HWPL International Law Peace Committee has worked so hard, sometimes will very late at night to produce the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War.

What world be the purpose of all this work?

It is peace.

Because we have people like them, I am certain that our dearest hope, a safe and peaceful world, will be achieved.

Long ago, I received the command of heaven to do the work of peace, so I began it with faith in heaven.

The reason I could carry out such work with confidence was because I had the answer for achieving peace.

Things have gone very well wherever I went.

I have gone around the world and made continuous efforts.

Whomever I met, I could connect with them.

Everyone wanted peace.

Everyone wanted an end to wars and conflicts.

And all of them pledged to work together as messengers of peace.

Everyone, today will be remembered forever in history.

The Declaration,which we could only dream of, will now go out to the world.

Things are going very well, with the help of the heavens.

If someone is doing the work that havens want, why wouldn't the heavens help him?

All people across the globe are one family in one common house, 
and if so we should all become messengers of peace.

When the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War is proclaimed today, 
people around the world will see it.

This is because such Declaration is unprecedented in world history.

We should unite as one in heart and purpose so that all people of the world will recognize this Declaration of peace and Cessation of War and that humanity will enter into a new era, a new world.

We must love one another as we love ourselves, forgive, and bless one another.

And we must create a good world where everyone helps each other and lives happily together.

Moreover, we should raise peace monuments and educate youth on peace so that our future generations will live in a wonderful place, remembering and appreciating our efforts for peace.

Is there a heaven elsewhere?

Let us create a beautiful world, a place where even God and the angels of heaven would want to dwell together.

After thousands of years, it seems that we humanity have reached our destination.

It is my earnest wish that peace will reach all corners of the earth and all peoples will hold festivals to celebrate peace.

Even the world "war" should be erased from the vocabulary of humanity.

And now, our world should be filled with peace and love.

Man Hee Lee, HWPL Chairman/ South Korea

Everyone, let us become one family of peace.

We are Youth Peaceful Volunteers for the Card Section Performance

At the WARP Summit 2016, 12,126 IPYG youth members
Last month at the WARP Summit 2016, 12,126 IPYG youth created spectacular scenes of War and Peace that captivated the viewers, which was seen as the result of purely voluntary efforts in raising great awareness for peace. Behind the scenes, however, performers, staff, and organizers, under scorching heat and humidity, spent over 180 hours practicing in the span of 18 consecutive weeks. The card section performance deeply moved all the participants on site, as well as those abroad who watched through screens, binding everyone together in the spirit of peace. So, what has motivated these youths to gather and express these exquisite moments of peace? The distinctive features regarding this year’s card section performance and the performers’ narrative interviews are highlighted here.
Spirit of Volunteerism

From the bottom of our heart, we fully support the peace work of HWPL along with IPYG and IWPG. We were more than willing to spare our time, efforts, and young spirits to raise hopeful awareness of peace. As non-paid and purely voluntary performers, the spirit of volunteerism, which has become a culture perceived among all youth performers, was something that bound us together. What we enjoy in this world should not be taken for granted, and we, as the youth in this generation, ought to give back and make this world a better place to live in for the future youth. It encourages us to keep on going even when facing many obstacles before us.

Diversity of Peace Found on Common Ground

IPYG’s Card Section Performance at the WARP Peace Summit
We are students, teachers, advertising marketers, nurses, trading firm workers, salespersons, and much more, and we also come from diverse backgrounds in terms of ideals and views. Yet, we share one common ground – that is, we hope to spread a culture of peace through our performance. A culture that will move many hearts of citizens and leaders, who will come to realize the necessity of putting an end to wars and will then actually act upon their beliefs. Holding, folding, and unfolding each individual card that we made demonstrated the diversity among us and that of the world in which we live. However, it is the culture of peace that unites all differences in the mutual understanding and tolerance between peoples, communities, and nations. Our unique story and experiences are to be shared with others in spreading the culture of our common goal.

Dynamic Performance of Peace

12,126 Peace Messengers are Delivering the Hope of Peace to the World
What is great about our performance is that it delivers the hearts of many yearning for peace with strong messages and realistic scenes for the global citizens. This year’s card performance, “War and Peace” consisted of three acts: The History of War, Articles of DPCW, and Korea, the Core Nation of Peace. The 21 minute-long performance narrated the atrocities committed during war time, both in the past and present, as well as the roadmap to reach a sustainable and universal peace. Our determination and messages for the global family are captured in this video.

<The Story Behind WARP 2016 Card Stunt>

Q) What was your driving motivation to participate as card stunt performer?

Min-ji Song, IPYG member/ Practicing nurse
I met a veteran of Korean War when I visited elderly living alone.
While I was giving him a massage, I heard him speak about the atrocious sight
he saw, fear and sorrow he felt over losing his family members at Korean War.
After such awakening, I participated at peace walk two years ago.
There, I witnessed many people who also sincerely hope for peace and saw a practical step to bring peace.
In order to join the practical steps and movement to bring peace,
I volunteered as a card stunt performer.

Q) What does card stunt performance mean to you?

Sun-gil Kim, IPYG member/ Worker at a trading firm
I've faced many challenges while preparing for card stunt performance.
I had to endure scorching heat from sun, work in a drenching sweat, I could overcome these challenges by changing my thoughts.
When I saw many people next to me are raising their cards for the same purpose in same mindset, I felt I am not alone in this work.
That's how I could overcome such challenges.

Da-sol Park, IPYG member/ Stage actress
The most difficult mement I recall was when my mother became suddenly ill the day before the practice.
I felt the fear that I could have lost someone I love the most.
It tore my heart apart when I realized there must be so many at war.
who are constantly under this fear of losing their beloved ones.
I decided to take a firm stand on their behalf to achieve world peace by participating at the IPYG Card Stunt performance which presents practical steps to bring peace.

Q) What would you like to say to people who will be watching this card stunt performance?

Hae-ryeong Kim, IPYG member/ Advertising marketer
I'd like all who will watch the card stunt to not only watch the directed scenes but also feel the heart to put an end to wars and sacrifices of lives.
It shouldn't be the work of an individual but of everyone in the world.
As a member of this golbal family, it is our collective task to fulfill world of peace.

Jun-sung Park, IPYG member/ Card stunt staff
Achieving world peace is not a task single individual can achieve.
That's why I ask everyone in the world would join this work with the same heart.
If our card stunt performance moves the hearts of people attending this year's WARP Summit to join this work of peace, I believe world peace will no longer be a distant dream.

WARP, Fundamental Aspect of Solutions to Peace

WARP, Fundamental Aspect of Solutions to Peace
<Religious Leaders Unite under Peace and Truth>

International Religious Leaders Conference
Part I, Religious Leaders Meeting for Solidarity in Truth

What is the fundamental aspect of religion? It has become one of the most crucial and pressing question to answer of all time. Religion plays a great role in forming one’s thoughts, beliefs, and values through spiritual values it teaches.

Today, religion has failed to resolve or mediate political, economic and ethnic factors leading to conflicts but rather has intensified them into bloodshed wars. United Nations and countries around the world have strongly called to take a strong stand against violent extremism committed in the name of religion.
We have come to a point for religion to discuss search for the truth which follows the teachings of the Creator, uphold and promote the true values of religion such as love, respect, harmony and peace. 
At this critical moment, during the 2nd Annual Commemoration of WARP Summit, HWPL and Chairman Lee reaffirmed Alliance of Religions as one of core initiatives to bring peace.
At the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit in 2014, religious leaders signed the Unity of Religion Agreement and pledged before the Creator and people of all nations to bring all religions into one. 
Afterwards, HWPL WARP Office was established to discuss fundamental aspect of religion and solutions to peace based on inter-religious understandings on a wide variety of topics.

During this year’s Summit, over 200 leaders representing 16 religions gathered to discuss the necessity of seeking trustworthy scripture and reaffirm their solidarity to be active proponents of achieving peace as religious leaders.

During the first part of the conference, participants saw the progress on scripture dialogue through the WARP Office meetings and were reminded of the role that religious leaders play. 

People are urging for harmony among religions and emphasizing the role of the leaders in bringing an end to wars and achieve peace in our generations. Scripture dialogue at HWPL interfaith peace meetings are taking place all around the world to truly bring the alliance of religions.

Let me introduce HWPL Chairman, Man Hee Lee and IWPG Chiarwoman.
Please give them a big hand. 

“Deadly wars occur due to men’s greed, meaning men die due to their greed. 
For this reason, international law that prevents wars must be implemented and we have to advocate for it. 
In order for the alliance of religions to occur, the work of seeking a trustworthy scripture must be proceeded with for the true and lasting interfaith peace."  
-HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee

“World peace starts from the alliance of religions. All of you who deliver the teachings of heaven are the light of this generation. All of humanity lives according to the light. Let us act upon peace. The answer of peace that HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee gives is the truth. The truth applies to everyone, regardless of generation. The scripture dialogues that we continue to proceed with will definitely stop wars. Let us make a peaceful world to live in with our future generations.”
  -IWPG Chairwoman
