Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 1253 ~    15 December 1997

I have noted that since the first International Year of the Handicapped in human history which  I got the United Nations to proclaim, the number of handicapped in the world has increased from 300 million to 500 million. 

I therefore urge the creation of a World or UN Organization for the Handicapped.  The sooner, the better.

Pending this I recommend that a private organization or the United Nations establish a world reporting system on philanthropy for the handicapped and promote the creation of more prizes honoring persons and institutions which have done an outstanding work or given substantial aid for the handicapped.

Volume II Chapter 15 - Of Beauty and Art
When Mr. Javier Perez de Cuellar was elected UN Secretary General he called me to his provisional office in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and honored me with his first appointment as Assistant Secretary General.  We talked about his role and responsibilities.

At one point he pointed at a pick-up which was playing softly classical music in the background and said to me:
"To tell you the truth, I am not a political man.  What I really love is art, especially music, like the classical music you hear."
I jumped and said to him:
"But this is exactly what you are supposed to do:  like a musician and a composer you must create a symphony of nations, a harmony between all peoples on Earth, a harmony between humanity and our beautiful Earth, a harmony with heaven.  Never forget that as Secretary General you will be a conductor, a chief of orchestra and that you must produce, interpret the most universal precious harmony of all:  Peace."
He looked at me and said,
"You are right, but you are a great man and I am not.  You should be the Secretary General.  Your obstacle is your French nationality."

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

-- Nathaniel Hawthorne
