Just imagining that day—because people got up in the morning—and I don’t think anybody was really expecting to die... Going about their business.... Standing here today, looking at that, I wonder, “What have we learned? When something like this can happen where, instantly, hundreds of thousands of people are just wiped out from the face of this earth?”
And it isn’t just those people that are wiped out. It is their generation that they would have given birth to, and that generation, and that.... The wars are still happening. And there’s no one thing that’s going to solve the problem.
Prem Rawat, Peace Ambassador
But every human being taking on that responsibility of knowing themselves, and establishing peace for themselves, that’s the only solution that has not been tried.
And here, the river still flows—and here’s a tree, and here’s that building, a reminder—we are human. And we are on this beautiful planet Earth, and there has to be some understanding of what it means to really be alive. We have woken up to the world, but we haven’t woken up to life!
