~ Idea 1235 ~I sincerely hope, I pray that entire groups of humans whose rights, participation and needs are not satisfactorily heard in the United Nations, in regional organizations and national governments will submerge these institutions with numerous, concrete ideas as we move to the year 2000 and a new century and millennium. I am thinking in particular of youth, mothers, indigenous people, the poor and the unemployed of the world. I do not know why no one has created a world party of the poor. It should have been done at the UN Copenhagen world conference on poverty, as I had recommended.

Volume II Chapter 11 - Of Gratitude
-from My Spiritual Journey
When the war was over and I returned home, I learned that my father had spent several months in prison because I had escaped from the Germans. He asked me what I was going to do with my life. I replied: "I will work for peace. I do not want my children and grandchildren to see the horrors I have seen in this war." He said that there were no peacemakers on this planet and that I would lose my time. But during my doctorate of law studies at the University of Strasbourg I participated in a French essay competition on the subject "What do you think of world government?" I won the essay which led to an internship with the new United Nations in an abandoned war factory near New York City. I was hired as an official and stayed with the UN for the rest of my life.

WORD FOR THE DAY
The heart is right to cry
even when the smallest drop of light,
of love, is taken away....
You are right to do so in any fashion
until God returns to you.
Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky
