No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.
Helen Keller (1880 – 1968)
We cannot live alone.
And the thing that made this moment possible for you and for me, has been brought about by many people whom we will never know.
Marian Anderson (1897 – 1993)
We Give Thanks
To those who established and extended the universal principles of life and liberty as tenets by which we live and govern;
To those who recognized other lives as their own, whose love, concern and respect for humanity paved a better way;
To those who live according to their conscience to embody justice, compassion, integrity, benevolence, cooperation and goodwill;
To those who make the principles of peace a living reality, we give thanks.
We grateful for you and all the ways in which you support and foster peace.
May each, in our own unique ways, find ways to strengthen and enhance the good, the kind, the charitable and just within and around us. May we learn to live with greater wisdom, compassion and cooperation.
On behalf of the American Museum of Peace, we thank you for your encouragement, your participation and support as we work to make AMP a place that celebrates the people, the history and the attributes of peace.
We can all make a difference for how we live a life.
