Heavenly Culture is touching people's heart at 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit

At 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit, there are tons of people who participated. You can't even imagine how many people are volunteering. Their faces look bright and happy. Everybody is smiling at the event. The amazing scene which draw my attention was Heavenly Culture mas game. Their outfit was beautiful. Also, their make-up and hair was speechless. I'd like to introduce you their passion and give applause.

I had a chance to interview a person who was in charge of make-up. Let's take a look.


Her name is Han Guk Hee who is in charge. Her hand was busy making props and putting make-up on performer's face. Her job was at Summit was designing hairpiece and hair, educating make-up and putting make-up at the scene.

Her staff is about 30 people. Among them about 10 is doing hair and rest of people are doing the make-ups.

Another hairpiece she has designed
Her staff
 Her profession was not make-up related. She said "Four years ago, I was invited to the peace summit. At that time, I was a just audience. However, after I've found out about the value and purpose of the summit, my life has started to change. And, I became to consider how I can participate. It was challenge for me. Thinking of participating in peace activities accompanied with the power of culture has moved my heart. That's why I've been wanting to make beautiful event."

 In order to participate as a make-up staff member, she went to make-up academy first. She has practiced all day. She went to many cosmetic shop thinking about how she can make beautiful design. She's painted all kinds of colors on her hand. Also, she went to many make-up competition and won the prizes. She became to earn related certificate and worked in related field.


Today, more than 1,000 people are participating in parade. About 12 kind of parade will be on the stage. The director, Han Guk Hee, is in charge of 160 people to put make-up on.  Her team is consisted of 30 make-up artists and hairdressers who are preparing the parade. It'll take about 5-6 hours to prepare.


I've asked her about few questions. 
☆ What do you think in your mind when putting a make-up on performers?
First of all, they have to look beautiful. Also, I want VIP reads a peace message watching the performers including our make-up and props. In addition, I'll be thankful if their mind is touched.
☆ How do you think your work helps the peace business?
In order for peace business to be successful, there are lots of necessary element. But, I believe our volunteer work would help achieving peace. Even though you take a small part, I think it should help.
☆ What do you think when watching the performers who you put make-up on?
Actually, I feel nervous and have regret. The moment of tension comes when I think of how reflects to VIPs and how it shows on the screen. Until I hear 'It was pretty. You did good.', I'm really nervous.
☆ You were sleepless to prepare this event. How did you overcome when you had hard time?
Of course it is hard since time is short and I don't sleep enough.
However, if someone must do this, it can be me. This gives me strength. Also, when I think of people's face who is touched, I overcome difficult moments.
☆ If you'd like to tell staff who are currently working with you at field?
I just want to say thank you and love you. Our staffs had hard time since we slept less and practiced a lot.
☆ What can we do for peace?
Even though it is small thing, we need to act from now on. If picking a garbage on the street helps to achieve peace, please don't hesitate doing it.
☆ When do you think that world peace will come true?
It is happening right now. Look at this summit. It's already the fourth anniversary. The scale of the event is getting larger and larger every year. We are here to participate where peace comes true in reality.

Heavenly culture will change human life. If you taste heavenly culture, you will gain different level of life. As we look back our history, we grew out of war. But, this culture will change by heavenly culture. We can share, yield, understand and love each other.

The reason why 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit shows heavenly culture parade is the meaning of heavenly culture. Heavenly culture means "By heavenly culture, it transform the global village into a peaceful world."

We invite you to the scene of Heavenly Culture and its people.




On the way to 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit is held today

September 17, 2018 3 Comments
On the way to 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit is held today, I, HWPL supporter, am coming to the scene.

Today is the day I've been waiting for since HWPL is hosting 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit in Incheon. Incheon is closed from Yeonpyeong Island. Yeonpyeong Island had an attack 7 years ago which was November 23, 2010 14:34.  It has been reported that North Korea fired approximately 200 rounds of artillery shells at Yeonpyeong Island in the West Sea. As a result, two navy were dead and 16 was injured. Two civilian were dead and 10 was injured. 

Besides 11 countries, every single country are facing a danger of war provoked. At this moment, many countries and areas are having all kinds of conflicts and disputes. Around the world, 68.5 million people were forcibly displaced. And, 25.4 million became refugees. Tons of people lost their family, friend and children. Nobody can wipe out their cries.


Today is the meaningful day. Not only HWPL is hosting the WARP Summit but also leaders of two Koreas are having a meeting in Pyongyang. I hope the leaders of two Koreas are coming to wonderful meeting.


I personally invited as a HWPL supporters this year. Last month, I've visited the War Memorial of Korea in Yongsan, Seoul. I've witnessed many kinds of massive weapon and learned about how much those are dangerous. I can't imagine our children, family and friend are killed by those massive weapon. I wish there is no more war and conflicts in the world.

As a HWPL supporters, I'm heading to 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit with full of expectation. Here are some pictures that I've taken on the way to the main Stadium in Incheon.

[Peace Quotes] Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL

September 16, 2018 0 Comments
[Peace Quotes] Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL

Man has being doing peace work. Then, is there peace? Please keep peace and lead it to result. Peace families should tell their neighbors about peace and let them do peace work together. Should we just be a bystander? We can't. We have to take action.

President can not refuse peace. No one refuses peace. This is the reason why peace will com true. And this is the reason I'm asking you to work together for peace. I hope that we all unite together under peace and achieve eternal and peaceful world.


Both the president and an individual is the same person. If there is no people, there is no nation. If there is no nation, there is no president. The president loves the country and the people. Also, they are doing their best to make politics for the development of the country. Those people wouldn't like war. They would think the war should be ceased. They would want world peace for the people. In order for it to be achieved, DPCW, Artilcle 10 Clause38 should be practiced. So, the war can be ended and the peace can be achieved.

When I start doing this work, I transcend the border, the nation, and the religion. The reason I am doing this work is I believe the word we become one. 

When the United Nations was founded, it was created for peace. And, for the sake of this peace, we have a Security Council and five board members. These are the countries that make such a device that war does not take place. However, these countries has the enormous nuclei when they preclude some other countries from making a nuclear weapon. Did the UN prevent the war from happening? no


If war does not happen, is peace achieved? So, what will we hand over to our future generations? Day by day, there are more weapons to kill people. Will you pas them on to future generations? Should we not leave war, and leave peace to our future generations? Who should do it? We have to do it today. If we love children and love our country, we must do it. Is there a better place in that outer space than this earth? There is not. In this wide and unobstructed universe space, there is no place more beautiful and life-like than earth. Is not this the Creator God gave to mankind as an inheritance? Should we destroy it? I have to love.

You do not live 200 years when you have taken other country. why should we do it? We've taught to love others. But, what is love? 
Is it love to seize others? 
Is that the lesson of that country? We can not. So, religious people have to reflect and all nations also have to reflect. We must fight the war, do not ruin the planet. We must also consider the descendants of other nations. We must achieve the world of peace in the future.


Two days later, there will be 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit. The summit will be held in 17 countries including Korea, USA, Germany, UK, France, Australia, Japan, Philippines and  Africa. The HWPL is carrying out a peace movement with international law enactment, inter-religious harmony and peace education as major projects to realize world peace. 

Would like to join?



The world started to realize and believe HWPL's peace work and the necessity of DPCW.

[HWPL News] Held at the UN Headquarters to Create a Foundation of Understanding and Tolerance

Around 145 United Nations officials representing a number of countries, including Canada, Austria, Colombia, the Republic of Senegal, and the State of Qatar respectively, gathered to hold a dialogue regarding the agenda of peace and development at the UN Headquarters in New York on May 31st.


Organized as a collective effort of the diverse sectors of the global society in commemoration of the '2018 World Day for Cultural Diversity for dialogue and Development', the event was attended by heads of social organizations, religious leaders, heads of women's groups, youth leaders, and the media.

This conference aimed to reinforce international cooperation to ensure intercultural dialogue as a foundation for the effective exercise of universal human rights, responding to the necessity of the measure for integrating cultural diversity into development frameworks and policies.


While sharing experiences to promote cultural diversity and its potential, H.E. Mr. Francisco Alberto Gonzalez, the Deputy Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Columbia, stated, "My countries have gone through one of the longest armed conflicts in our hemisphere. Two Columbias, one with a strong state presence and another with a series of inequalities and no opportunities. That is why recognizing our opportunities and dialogues are needed. We, a very diverse country, know by experience that disarmament is not enough to create peace. We must not underestimate the need for peace  and stable development."


"I've been running with the answer to peace. If the answer is the solution to the end of conflicts, the suggested document must be passed or adopted.  Intercultural dialogue is necessary to bring peace and development. Media and education programs can affect the develop of intercultural dialogue. I would also like to highlight the role of religious and political leaders to make the positive influences and exchange...whatever is good for humankind." said H.E. Mr. Jan Kickert, the Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Austria. 

Attending as a special invited guest, Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL, urged for the cooperation and support of the officials of the UN in ensuring sustainable peace through the implementation of the international law for peace, saying, "I've visited all around the world and made a number of agreements with the formet and current presidents, the chief justices, and members of the National Assembly to end war together. All leaders in each country should sign the agreement for the international law to achieve peace if they love their country and its people. To do this, the United Nations must work together to accomplish the task of peace with the spirit of peace proclaimed from its inception."


He also added, "HWPL has been working to restore this world where the atrocities of wars still remain through the culture of heaven and peace with the answers to prohibit and end wars and bring about sustainable peace. I've been running with the answer to peace. If the answer is the solution to the end of conflicts, the suggested document must be passed or adopted. If not, we cannot expect the globe to encounter peace."


On June 23rd, educators and students from Israel visited the Republic of Korea to learn about the concept of peace presented by HWPL. This peace camp was requested by Israel Usifya Junior High school which has been closely collaborating with HWPL. The school sent a total of 26 participants, including 4 educators and 22 students, to the camp that was held over a period of 7 days in Gwangju with the theme of "We are One under Peace'.

Prior to the start of the camp, the students and educators visited HWPL peace institution. HWPL Chairman Lee highlightd that "education is crucial in realizing peace. The mindset of 'all armed conflicts can be put to an end' and the concept of peace should be taught at a young age." He also emphasized, "Let us all become the messengers of peace and leave the legacy of peace to our future generations."

Educator Magda Mansour who was designated as an HWPL Peace Educator on the same day also emphasized that "Out students expressed their enthusiasms of becoming messengers of peace and joined the HWPL Peace Camp. In order to realize peace, young generations should partake in greater peace-building efforts than adults."
Students were invited to think about the sanctity of life and the importance of respecting and living in coexistence with diverse bodies of ethnicities, religions and cultures by examining the core values of peace and HWPL Peace Education curriculums. They also explored possible solutions to put all armed conflicts to an end, thereby realizing that each of them is responsible for becoming an actor that brings peace.



On the topic of "What is Peace?', the camp participants compared and contrasted two different worlds, a beautiful world filled with peace and another that has been trained by war and armed conflicts. They further discussed and gave presentations on the root causes of war and armed conflicts in the world and the mindset necessary to resolve such conflicts.

14 year-old students, Lerazz Wehbi described the atrocities of war stating that "War and conflicts drive a happy family into becoming refugees, and some face death from famine and starvation." Seven Halabe highlighted the importance of peace education explaining that "Comforting children in fear of war by saying 'everything will be fine' can become a lie. Instead, parents should teach their children about the reality and encourage them to contribute positively to the situation they face."


In addition to the peace education workshop, educators and students experienced Korean cultural elements such as making bibimbap and hanji (Korea paper), wearing Korea traditional dress, and practicing a tea ceremony, etiquettes and Korean traditional wedding. Through this time, they mutually shared the importance of recognizing and understanding as well as embracing cultural differences, thereby becoming one in harmony.

On the lat day of the camp, the participants also visited main tourist sites of Gwangju such as the folk museum, Mt. Mudeung observatory, Cho-sun University and the Asian Culture Complex. They then shared their collective action plans as messengers of peace in the future.


Hussam Abu Roken said, "It is important to actively share and spread the messages of peace to my school friends. When I return to Israel, I will deliver the love and message of peace so that peace can take greater effect there," expressing gratitude to all the staff and the Korean students who made the Peace Education camp possible.

On June 6th, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted the resolution 2419(2018) to call on increasing the representation of young people. The resolution was crafted to recognize the role youth could play in conflict prevention and resolutions while "advancing sustainable peace" and "spreading culture of peace."
 International youths hosted an event urging their international leaders to support peace in the same manner as the resolution and calling for the role of young adults to be enhanced in advancing peace. IPYG and HWPL hosted the "Peace Letters Campaign" in 35 locations across 7 major cities in the Republic of Korea such as Seoul and Paju from the 9th through 10th of June.


Young adults and citizen participants wrote letters urging their state leaders' efforts in the peace-building process, Over the period of 2 days, 20,006 letters were written and collected, currently summing up to a total of 66,900 peace letters.

The IPYG peace letter campaign is driven by young adults in the republic of Korea, with a focus on advocating for the 10 articles 38 clauses of the DPCW, such as the peaceful resolution of conflicts, reduction of armed potentials, safeguarding freedom of religion and ethnicity, and spreading a culture of peace.
 

A youth participants, Park Min-jeong said, "Previously, I had an illegitimate fear over the reunification of the Korean peninsula. The recent Inter-Korea Summit shed a light and gave me an fanticipation of achieving reunification in our generation." She continued, "From now on, I'd like to pay closer attention to ongoing conflicts in the international society, and I am pleased to join the peace promoting activities which will bring an end to war."
 
Ms. Kim Dahee who just finished writing a letter said, "I cannot possibly forget the historical moment where the two heads of state met in Panmunjom on April 27th. I hope the two Koreas will achieve peaceful unification sooner rather than later."



Mr. Kim Yongjin, the head of IPYG North Seoul and Gyeong-gi branch said, "Young adults are always recruited to fight at the frontier of every armed conflict and war. Then, too many young people were left to die. We should actively strive to achieve heart-felt peaceful unification."

On September 18th this year, IPYG will announce the statement wishing for a peaceful unification of the Korean peninsula at the 4th Commemoration of the DPCW. 150,000 hand-written letters are also expected to be delivered to President Moon.


On 18th of September, there will be two koreas meeting in Pyongyang. On same day, there will be Peace Summit in Incheon. 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit will be held by HWPL. We invite you to unforgettable moment.
