He continued saying that “… Reverend Dr. Sun Myung Moon created the UPF in New York on September 12, 2005 to help policymakers and officials around the world to control their lives and thought patterns to go more towards a world peace by following and practicing the five Universal Principles “that he developed much later. He invited the crowd to practice these five principles for a new Congo can be emerge.
He also stressed that the road to peace organized by the Federation for Universal Peace is a way to remind everyone, as it is and regardless of political or religious affiliation, the national and universal peace depend on each from US. Becoming aware is a major breakthrough.
Representative of FFWPU, Rev. Norbert NDIELLE MOUTSATSI who thanked all participants present at this great event, observed a minute of silence for those who died in our country and around the world for their religious, political, cultural or racial. He reminded that in 2015, dated July 26, the first Road of Peace 2015, took place in the same place. More than a simple repetition, it is rather an inquiry to every one of us here present that peace sought throughout the ages, is above all the effort everyone; We must be aware, responsible and activist for peace begins in the individual runs in the family, nation and world.
