Flowers were presented to Mr. Hyun-jin Moon as he was welcomed to the podium.

He began by explaining the vision of W-CARP and the advancements it had made up for the past forty years. Mr. Moon explained that the first and highest dream that God had as He created this world was in establishing a true family. Yet this dream was lost due to the fall of man. To restore that dream God worked through the providence of restoration, living for the sake of others in true love.

Mr. Moon also spoke about the recent world tour in which the three generations of the True Family (True Parents, True Children and True Grandchildren) had delivered a message of peace and true love, and that the essence of that message was in creating a culture of heart based on true love, living for the sake of others, and true families. He also emphasized that this was also at the heart of World CARP's core values.

Mr. Moon asked for all participants to become like the youths, clear and pure in heart, regardless of their actual age. He called upon the participants to become leaders who can open a new era of Cheon Il Guk by challenging themselves to become creative and transform this world.

After this special message from Hyun-jin nim, the older leaders were called to the stage and together sang "With my lord" (Nim-gwa-ham-kke). Participants stood facing each other and made a human tunnel and had everyone pass through that tunnel to symbolize a new rebirth.
