Distinguished world leaders, Ambassadors for Peace, and Blessed-(Unification Church-married)-family members who have come from all parts of the world, in the hope of bringing about the realization of world peace and building the ideal hometown in heaven and on earth:

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of you for coming together in the midst of your busy schedules, to take part in this rally -- to expand and elevate to a global level, the "Family Party for Universal Peace and Unity", so that it may be reborn as the "Cheon Il Guk House for Peace and Unification" -- to make the Universal Peace Federation a model, UN-type organization -- and to make Cheon Il Guk the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world through the concerted efforts of all the nations of the world.

Ladies and gentlemen, as we begin the twenty-first century, we find ourselves at a truly historic turning-point. We are at a point of decision. Can everlasting world-peace take root, or are we doomed to repeat the twentieth century's dark and oppressive history of war and conflict?

The twentieth century was a period of ceaseless struggle, including that of colonized countries to gain their independence, the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War, and the Cold War. Living through this era, I dedicated my life entirely to bringing about the kingdom of God, the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world. I have always prayed sincerely that the United Nations, founded after the Second World War, would be an institution for peace, and that it would uphold God's will for the realization of eternal world-peace.
A Project for Peace

Leaders from throughout the world, we are today marking the precious conclusion of the history of God's providence. On this occasion, let me take the opportunity to repeat the proposal I have made for a truly providential and revolutionary project. This project is for the sake of the establishment of the kingdom of peace that is the purpose of the culmination of the providence for God and humankind, and also for the purpose of establishing God's homeland and original hometown. From the historical point of view, the divisions of our world into East and West, North and South, were wrought by Satan. I am proposing that we build a passage for transit across the Bering Strait that separates the North American and Russian land-masses. This passage, which I call the "World-Peace-King Bridge-Tunnel", will link an international-highway system that will allow people to travel on land, from Africa's Cape of Good Hope to Santiago, Chile, and from London to New York, across the Bering Strait, connecting the world as a single community.

God is warning us that He will no longer tolerate separation and division. Carrying out this project will bind the world together as one village. It will tear down the man-made walls of race, culture, religion, and country, and establish the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world that has been God's cherished desire.

The United States and Russia can become as one. The European Union, China, India, Japan, Brazil, and all nations, and also the world's religions, can combine their energies to make this project succeed. The success of this project will be decisive, in establishing the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world, where people will no longer make war on each other.

Ladies and gentlemen, some may doubt that such a project can be completed. But where there is a will, there is always a way -- especially if it is the will of God.

The science and technology of the twenty-first century render it possible to construct a tunnel under the Bering Strait. The construction costs are also not a problem. Think of , as the prophet Isaiah taught, to beat our swords into ploughshares, and spears into pruning hooks. Humankind should end the perverse cycle of war
