Peace Road 2015 in Wales
FFWPU Wales: On July 11 in Cardiff, Wales held the Peace Road event. Sixteen participants joined the walk. Most of them were in thier 70s or very close to 70.
For the Peace Road section, we planned to walk the entire circuit of Hendre Lake Park in Cardiff, plus some additional distance for those who could manage it around the park’s rose gardens.
Most of the people were elderly members, but to participate in the Peace Road rally, going on all over the world, they prepared to take part in this event. It covered 8 km (5 miles). Most of us did walk the whole perimeter of the park, which included the lake and the rose gardens.
The park is a busy place for visitors so it was a great opportunity to be seen by many people – walkers, joggers and those driving past – and as we gave out leaflets along the way, it was a great opportunity to spread the message about Rev. Moon
The lighthouse on the lake contains a scale model of the Terra Nova, the ship that Captain Scott sailed in on his voyage to the Antarctic. It departed to the Antarctic from Cardiff. That voyage was ill-fated but we hoped that our “World Peace 2015 Tour” would have a more successful, positive and lasting result, albeit a somewhat symbolic one. It certainly brought members together with a feeling of doing something positive and was great for bonding, especially as we finished up with a picnic in my house.
