15th Anniversary of UPF's Founding
Saturday 12 September 2020

New York, United States - Declaring the world to be at a pivotal "historic turning point," Reverend Dr. Sun Myung Moon asked an international peace gathering to consider, "Can everlasting world peace take root, or are we doomed to repeat the 20th century's dark and oppressive history of war and conflict?" Addressing a standing-room-only house in Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall on September 12, 2005, he spoke on the topic, "God's Ideal Family: The Model for World Peace." The address marked the inauguration of the Universal Peace Federation. Below is the address given that day and throughout the world during UPF peace tours and rallies on six continents. On many occasions, Father Moon elaborated on various points in the speech.
