[Peace Quotes] 918 WARP Summit : We Have to Do This Today

[Peace Quotes] 

918 WARP Summit : We Have to Do This Today

Chairman of HWPL : Mr. Man Hee, Lee

During the 29th Peace Trip in Africa, HWPL's Chairman, Mr. Man Hee Lee, delivered very inspirational speeches in his meetings with many high-level officials in Africa including politicians, legal professionals, religious leaders and leaders of women and youth organizations. 

As the chairman of HWPL, he urged all people to support and to sign the DPCW, which is the only answer for world peace. 

"I asked people to raise their hand if they wanted peace. Then everyone raised their hand"

"How can you pay for the life of people killed in war?"

Chairman Man Hee Lee served in the Korean War as a front-line soldier. He knows what people have felt in war, as much as those in these videos.

"I had seen too many cruel things during the fratricidal (homogeneous) Korean War. I once hugged an enemy, cried and talked with him. Yes, I talked to an enemy soldier while we were hugging each other. We asked, ‘Why do we have to fight this war? Who is this war for?’ How many of you have ever taken part in war? I did - the war where countless people of the same race died. It was an extremely fierce war. 

Therefore, to stop war and to accomplish peace in this world, he has been hosting the 918 WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Summit since 2014, and also working hard to introduce the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War)

The DPCW consists of 10 articles and 38 clauses that can put an end to all global conflict. Below are its first 4 articles.

I'm certain that the 918 WARP Summit will make people of the world meet each other and discuss how they can achieve world peace. It will also guide them to urge every president, minister, king and leader of the world to support and to sign the DPCW. 

What would happen if every world leader signed not to go to war? I can't wait to see what a peaceful world looks like.

However, it is not only leaders who must make peace, but every person in the world like you and I. 

"Ladies and gentlemen, we have to do this today. We, who are born in this generation, must do this. If we really love our children and country, we must do this."

These words of Chairman Man Hee Lee deeply moved my heart, and I hope it does the same for you :) I really hope that you can support HWPL's peace work by watching the 4th anniversary of the 918 WARP Summit and become a messenger of peace like me :) Peace!

P.S. This is a promotional video of the 4th anniversary of the 918 WARP Summit. Enjoy!
