GLOBAL PEACE, a universal proclamation

Mel Carnahan, the governor of Missouri, the home state of SOM World Headquarters, was the first of many state and city officials to proclaim the Universal Hour of Peace.



    The Universal Hour of Peace is December31st/January 1st so that people of all nations can usher in the New Year with thoughts of peace. We have received support from religious and secular leaders worldwide, including governors of many of the United States of America. If you would like to participate in this endeavor by requesting a proclamation from the governor of your state, please call, write or e-mail us for the wording of the current official peace proclamation.

      Whereas the United States of America has historically been a melting pot where people of all nationalities, religious faiths and cultures come together as one, and as the strength of our great state of Missouri rests in the cooperative spirit of the community of its citizens; and

      Whereas our greatest hope of establishing peace among diverse peoples is through recognizing our connectedness and common dream of Peace on Earth; and

      Whereas the School of Metaphysics knows that living peaceably begins by thinking peacefully; and

      Whereas October 24, 1995 is the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, an organization founded to unite the world's nations by resolving conflict and encouraging peace between governments; and

      Whereas the School of Metaphysics is an organization founded to promote peace, understanding and goodwill within Self and among all people; and

      Whereas the School of Metaphysics is initiating the Universal Hour of Peace on October 24, 1995 at noon Universal Time (G.M.T.) 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. as an hour when all people in a synchronized effort are encouraged to dedicate their thoughts and actions to peace;

      Now, therefore, I, Mel Carnahan, Governor of the State of Missouri do hereby proclaim October 24, 1995 at 7:00 a.m. C.D.T. as the

      Universal Hour of Peace

      in the state of Missouri.
