As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen Author:Reverend Sun Myung Moon To bring a world of peace, I have spent my life going to the most lowly and secluded places.

Intoxicated with the power of love, I went on to plant seeds and cultivate forests, and these trees were used to build schools. Together, we caught fish to feed hungry children. I was happy even as mosquitoes bit me all over as I fished all through the night. Even when I was sinking knee deep into mud, I was happy because I could see the shadows of dispair disappear from the faces of my neighbors.
I wanted nothing aside from love, and I threw my entire being into the effort to share love with my impoverished neighbors. At times, the path of love was so difficult that my knees buckled under me, but even then I felt happy in my heart, dedicated to loving humanity.
Even now, I am filled with love that I have not yet been able to give. It is with a prayer that this love will become a river of a peace saturating the Go land and flowing to the ends of the earth that I now place this book before the world. Recently a growing number of people have been seeking to know more about me. For the sake of those who are curious, I have looked back on my life and recorded my candid recollections in this book.« less
