Dr. Han said in her speech, “There are many problems in the world today. We have tried to overcome these problems with human effort and power; however, there is still no answer and the future is in a hopeless situation. We have seen the terrible reality of the first and second World Wars, and we have been through the 72nd anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations, but we still have yet to solve these problems globally.” She also continued, “Let those people and nations who received Heaven’s blessings take responsibility. Happiness grows as we share it, and we must fulfill our responsibilities as a blessing that can be shared with our neighbors, nations, and the world, not merely for our own happiness,” and she then said, “Let us all work together to achieve peaceful reunification through true love.”
