Peace Road 2015 in Denmark

FFWPU Denmark: Denmark had the Peace Road event on two separate days, July 19 and 26. They went to the Holy Ground on July 19 and prayed for the unification of North Korea and South Korea and world peace, because July 20 was the 50 year anniversary of their Holy Ground.

On July 26, Denmark had a Peace Bike event, riding 30 kilometers around the Island of Amager. The highlight was going to the old seaside village ‘Dragoer’, south of Copenhagen. There, the fact that 700 Jews were rescued by local fishermen in October 1943, during the German occupation in WWII is highlighted. The fishermen and other volunteers put their own lives at risk by sailing the Jews to a neutral country, Sweden, crossing the Oresund Sea by night (as part of an similar combined Danish-Swedish effort that saved the lives of around 7,000 Jews). That place also has the best view of the 16 kilometer Oresund-bridge and tunnel between Denmark and Sweden; a symbol of peace between two formerly hostile nations.

Afterward, Peace Bike Denmark had a Peace Festival with Ambassadors for Peace and some guests. They watched a video about a peace conference in the UN Office building in Vienna with Rev.Hak Ja Han Moon, and had peace cultural events, such as exchanging roses. After that everyone sang ‘Urie sownen’ together. All participants were so inspired and had strong confidence to have much bigger scale Peace Road event next year.
