Road to Peace #2 : Why 525? Why do they walk?

HWPL’s 11th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace and Peace Walk

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Road to Peace #2 : Why 525? Why do they walk?

Why did people start walking on 25 May? Millions of people around the world walk on that day. It started in 2013.

The Declaration of World Peace, first proclaimed by HWPL Chairman Lee on May 25, 2013, called upon people to acknowledge the dire need for world peace. And Man Hee Lee defined the roles of heads of state, women, youth and the press in achieving peace.

Over 20,000 people from 130 countries gathered to march for peace at the Peace Gate of Seoul Olympic Park, South Korea. 525 peace walk has become a symbol of peace for both youth and women around the world.

That’s how we got to our 11th anniversary this year. People have been walking for over a decade now. On the HWPL homepage, there are pictures and descriptions of the event every year, and it’s touching to see them.

The Declaration of World Peace

In keeping with the spirit of the Declaration of World Peace, that HWPL aims to achieve world peace through the heavenly culture and restore the global community with light, we are carrying out peace activities all across the world.

In 2013, HWPL’s work was defined, and the 2014 HWPL World Peace Summit brought political and religious leaders together in Seoul.

And they discussed the need for a new international law for peace. In 2015, an International Law Commission was created to further the discussion, and on 14 March 2016, Article 10, paragraph 38 of the DPCW was promulgated.

I would love the opportunity to explain DPCW in more detail.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!

at HWPL’s 11th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace and Peace Walk..

Today is the 25th of May. I can’t believe it’s been 11 years since HWPL was founded, and I’ve been a supporter for 8 years now.

I’m grateful, because in this way, little by little, I’ve come to think about peace every day. I guess peace is a habit!

This is the peace walk! Road to Peace!

Thoughts have a quality called inertia. If you think in a certain direction, you will eventually move in that direction, and eventually I, my friends, my neighbours, my city, and society will move in that direction.

I think it’s a force for good, and I think it’s a culture of peace. Article 10 of the DPCW is ‘Spreading a culture of peace’. Before I knew it, I was upholding DPCW international law! Suddenly I’m happy.

The event embodies the citizens’ active will to establish an era of peace. Through the event, HWPL will tell the world that the remarkable journey of building a world of peace begins with the citizens, the true leaders of the global community.

HWPL’s Legislate Peace (LP) project has led activities to reach a world of peace built by citizens since 2013. The project hosts citizen-led global campaigns aiming to realize sustainable peace, long yearned by every member of the global community.

25 May has become a day to celebrate peace, where citizens take the initiative in planning and organizing peace events. That resonance of peace will stimulate collective civic action and help a culture of peace take root in the global society.

Peace leaders and religious leaders from all over the world gathered in Seoul for the first time in 2014.

It’s a YouTube shorts for less than a minute, so I recommend you watch it. I can feel the excitement wash over me.

In 2013, HWPL declared through the Declaration of World Peace that, to end wars and bring peace to the global community, a new international legal instrument was needed.

At the 2014 World Peace Summit, legal and political leaders from around the world signed an agreement with HWPL to work together on drafting such a document.

In just a year and a half, on 14 March 2016, the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was proclaimed, and HWPL is actively committed to the introduction of the DPCW into international law.

Man hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, said “If you are a believer who truly desires for peace and loves this global community like his own body, religions must become one.
When religions become one, there will be no more war; and if there is no war, there will be peace.
Let’s all become one so we can make this global community into a world of peace.”

Man Hee Lee is a man who is showing the way to the path of peace. With a clear vision, many follow in his footsteps. With him and HWPL, peace will come soon enough.

What do you do when you wake up in the morning and throughout the day?
And how do each of those actions impact our humanity?

Most of the time, we live for ourselves, or we live for our family or significant other.

What would happen if we expanded our thinking a little further outward? IPYG Australia branch gave it a try.

Last December, the IPYG Australian branch collaborated with Community Friends organization in the Brisbane City to conduct volunteer activities providing free food and clothing to those in need at Bunyapa Park in West End, Brisbane City.

The IPYG Australian branch initiated volunteer work to disseminate a culture of peace to neighbors and marginalized individuals within the community.

During the recent volunteer activity, the IPYG Australian branch, alongside Community Friends, prepared food to distribute to the homeless and facilitated dialogue sessions to strengthen community networks for people with multi-national backgrounds to have social cohesion.

Why do IPYG Australia branch spread a culture of peace?

What is a culture of peace? Where did that phrase come from?

10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)

4. States should promote a culture of peace, including ensuring conditions in which-
(a) citizens are able to participate in the political affairs of the State as equals, regardless of religious or ethnic differences;
(e) the wellbeing of all human kind, with the participation of women and men, to ensure peaceful coexistence amongst Nations, States, and peoples may be guaranteed.

I only took (a) and (e) from Article 10 of the DPCW. I admire IPYG Australia for continuing to practice international law, the DPCW, as the answer to peace.

Recently, I’ve been re-motivated about peace. I’ve also been thinking about writing a peace novel. Don’t you think it would be fun?

So we felt it was time to take a look back at what HWPL has been up to since 2014. I also found a YouTube channel called HWPL Peace Magazine. I will be reviewing them one by one.

HWPL hosted the HWPL 918 World Peace Summit (HWPL WARPsummit) in 2014 with leaders in politics, religion, women’s groups, youth groups and the media in attendance.

HWPL and leaders of various sectors convened to discuss conflict resolution, establishing peace, and mutual cooperation and signed landmark agreements on building and implementing solid systems for cooperation.

The agreements covered implementing legal instruments to ensure peace, building religious harmony and creating peace activites by state actors and citizens, respectively.

The legal instruments became the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War) in 2016.

It’s so interesting to trace the past like this. It’s inspiring to see what they decided to do then, and how they realized it years later.

In fact, there’s a HWPL Press Conference that attracts a lot of reporters. The Chairman of HWPL, Man hee Lee, coolly answers the question. These days, reporters are increasingly curious, not aggressively snarky.

As I review each video, I hope you will feel the power of HWPL and become a messenger of peace.

After declaring the need for an international law in 2013, Man Hee Lee committed to the creation of a peaceful international law on September 18, 2014, by signing the Convention for the Establishment of an International Law of Peace with 29 former presidents, Supreme Court justices, and world leaders at the Peace Parliament.

The Chairman Man Hee Lee believes that practical laws and institutions are needed to end war, and that the causes, means, and ideas of war must be fundamentally eliminated and changed. The Chairman Lee and international law experts from 17 countries have begun laying the groundwork for a peace bill.

Articles 1 through 7 of the DPCW address the role of states in creating an environment of peace in the international community, including restraining the use of force, disarmament, respect for international law, and the promotion of friendly relations.

Articles 8 through 10 emphasize that all communities, consisting not only of states but also of all individuals, should participate in the development of peace, including freedom of religion, the spread of a culture of peace, civic participation, and the strengthening of education and welfare, suggesting that building a peaceful world is the task of the hour for everyone in the global village.

What is the ‘building the minds of peace’?
The plant depends on what seeds you plant.

The world is a giant turf war, and ideologies are constantly reproduced.
Do I really think what I think? What percentage of my opinions are really mine?

The problem is that I don’t even know myself. We are influenced by so many things.

As conflicts around the world continue to escalate, a gathering of international peace experts in South Korea reiterated the importance of a culture of peace and the need for institutional peace.

“I traveled 31 times around the world and met with many religious and political figures to convey the need for peace,” said the Chairman Man-Hee Lee in his commemorative speech.
“Although there were differences, most of them were pure and always had good relationships. I traveled to every country and learned a lot,” he said.

“It is important for us to communicate with each other regardless of borders, race, and religion,” he said, emphasizing, “Let’s stop quarreling and fighting, do our duty as people, and cooperate with each other.”

Everyone has a role in life. Answers to Why are you alive? We live in a society, and each of us has a role to play.

What do you think is the role of a journalist?
I think of it as an informing role. To be unbiased, neutral, and objective in presenting the facts.

Among the contributors, 6 speakers delivered addresses on the role of media in building peace, peace-related issues, peace journalism and global security.

HWPL Peace Education with Greece

HWPL’s peace education is global. It is worth noting that it creates a change of thought that can achieve ‘peace’ by finding the commonalities of each country’s culture.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE HWPL Peace Education with Greece peace education textbook man hee lee peace education HWPL Peace education Greek anecdote Greece Peace education Filial piety
Santorini, Greece

The textbook made by HWPL also contains information about Greece. In Peace Textbook 9 and Section 1-‘Courtesy of Parents,’ it is explained that loving and honoring parents beyond the differences of time, region, and culture is a universal value of all mankind.

In particular, it is emphasized that remembering and paying back the love and kindness given by parents is a characteristic that only humans have.

There is an ancient Greek anecdote about this filial piety. Greece is famous for having a strict culture of respect for the elderly and parents since ancient times.

For example, in ancient Delphi, people who did not take care of their parents were imprisoned.

In Athens, a person who neglected his or her parents was fined and some citizenship was deprived.

Greek proverbs such as “Old people’s words weigh heavily” and “Those who respect their parents never die” reflect a deep-rooted culture of respect for parents and the elderly.

As such, peace education by utilizing proverbs and examples of each country is a great advantage.

Georgia teacher said, “I loved the textbooks prepared for peace education,” adding, “It contains a variety of colors and various information and activities.” “HWPL’s peace education textbooks are made in a more understandable language considering the level of children and teenagers,” he said. “The HWPL peace education textbooks are also very important because they have clear guidelines on what teachers should do.”

After nine weeks of training, Georgia’s teachers took pride in HWPL peace education more than anyone else. “HWPL’s certificate of teacher training is now my pride,” she said.

In fact, students who received peace education also responded positively.

After receiving peace education, one student said, “I realized that I was special,” adding, “I have to be with people who are valuable and make me feel good about myself.”

“I think the Chairman Man hee Lee is an inspirational and charismatic person who can do anything to bring peace to the world,” Georgia teacher said. “I think HWPL is a great organization with great educational materials and plans and is ready to support every step of the way.”

Title: PEACE HERO

Lyrics :

Some people say that it’s a DREAM
It’s a dream that peace will NEVER HAPPEN here

It is possible to wish
It will always be impossible to meet

One seems to be like it will never be enough
But if it come ‘as’ ONE

Can you hear it’s finally HERE
Coming near, there’s no need to fear

Get on your feet, feel the beating heart that’s beating for the PEACE
Finally made it clear, we never say never

Can you hear it’s finally HERE
Coming near, there’s no need to fear

Get on your feet, feel the beating heart that’s beating for the PEACE
Finally we are seen, we are shining more than ever

We are one! We are one!
We are one! WE ARE ONE!

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE [HWPL Playlist] Anyone can be the PEACE HERO! WE ARE ONE Peace Hero HWPL Playlist

SCATTERED dreams and hearts of ours
We have always been the VICTIMS of the wars

But never hesitate to stand up for the PEACE
Cause we’re the ones to bring it back,

I’ll show you a miracle, trust me

One seems to be like it will never be enough
But if it come ‘as’ ONE

Can you hear it’s finally HERE
Coming near, there’s no need to fear

Get on your feet, feel the beating heart that’s beating for the PEACE
Finally we are seen, we are shining more than ever

We are one! We are one!
We are one! WE ARE ONE!

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE [HWPL Playlist] Anyone can be the PEACE HERO! WE ARE ONE Peace Hero HWPL Playlist

Though one would never make it through
‘As’ ONE we’ll surely make it come true

Let us shine, so the world would never be darkened anymore
You and I TOGETHER, there’s nothing we can’t do

We will never stop
We will never stop

We are one! We are one!
We are one! WE ARE ONE!


I typed everything one by one. I did a good job, right? haha

I really relate to the lyrics. I think it would be nice to think about them one by one. Especially every time the chorus of “We Are One” comes out, I feel like I’m heartbroken.

My heart hurts. Are we really one? I want to be friends with you reading this.

Peace is up to you :0 Good luck!
