In addition to the bell-ringing ceremony, the summit also featured visionary leaders’ speeches on promoting the culture of peace with love and conscience. "Only with conscience will love and peace be practiced so that human rights be enhanced. Only with conscience will human rights be respected so that love and peace prevail,” stated Dr. Hong, Tao-Tze, President of FOWPAL.

 “The entire world is one neighborhood and one family,” said Dr. Jonathan Granoff, President of the Global Security Institute. He encouraged people to open their hearts and stressed, “If the conscience expands, then the heart expands.” Rev. Cornell Edmonds, the Interim Pastor of the Church of the Covenant, expressed his hope that peace and love becomes contagious: “Maybe that will be the next epidemic in this world.”
