Dr. Sun Jin Moon, who works as a peace advocate alongside her mother, FFWPU co-founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, shared an inspiring message of hope from her late father, FFWPU co-founder Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon. “The universal truth and values in family transcend religion,” said Dr. Sun Jin Moon. “This is not the ‘Windy City,’ it’s the ‘Winning City’ of true love.” Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon has tirelessly worked to promote peace across the U.S. and around the world, continuing her late husband’s legacy, while emphasizing unity, happiness, family values, true love, and personal connection with God.

For the last 24 years, a peacebuilding initiative has taken root in Chicago, where violent crime, gang activity, and racial tension has long thrived. But the city is also a wellspring of hope. The True Family Values (TFV) Awards Banquet, an interfaith and intercultural education effort founded in 1996 by the American Clergy Leadership Conference (ACLC), has brought together thousands of people over the years, and this year it is through a ‘Peace Starts With Me’ gala and concert on Saturday, October 19.

Lights dimmed in a grand ballroom at the Marriott Marquis Chicago hotel, where more than 1,300 people of various cultures and backgrounds came together to celebrate peace and reconciliation. “This gives hope,” said ACLC Midwest Chairman Rev. David Rendel. “It’s not just the event, it’s really celebrating the work that is happening here.” It’s steadfast work and commitment toward peace, through individuals—and families as the bedrock of society—that co-sponsors Peace Starts With Me (PSWM) and Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU) have strived for in creating this hybrid event. “Gathering this many people together under this type of banner and purpose is proof that people care, and it’s also proof that people will work together to do something about it,” said FFWPU-USA President Rev. Demian Dunkley. “In Chicago, it’s especially poignant because of the crime rates.”

The Chicago Police Department reported more than 1,600 shootings in the city in 2018, but it hasn’t deterred community members from banding together to make a…

By Rev. Kim Won-pil
Kim Won-pil joined True Father in Pyongyang, North Korea (yet before the division had been fully cemented). Father was 26 years old and Kim Won-pil was 18. During the Korean War, after Father got out of the Hungnam special labor camp, both men traveled south from Pyongyang to Busan. Father desperately wanting to continue his mission. This series is Rev. Kim Won-pil’s memories of this time.

Whenever we found a place to spend the night, it was my task to make a fire to warm the floor for sleeping. (Korean houses have a heating system under the floor.) One night I could find nothing to use for fuel, not even dried grass. Finally, I saw a small tomb and beside it a stretcher made of straw, supported by two poles. I brought the poles and started a fire with them, realizing later that the stretcher had probably been used to carry a corpse. The three of us were extremely tired, and even though the floor was cold, Father and Mr. Pak lay down, while I tended the fire. Suddenly Father called out to me, asking what kind of wood I was burning. I explained in detail how I had looked everywhere for fuel, to no avail, until I found the poles on the hill near the…
