On September 17, Generation Peace Academy participants turned out in force for an afternoon Peace Road event, biking around the length of the National Mall to raise awareness about the America and God’s Will rally, which would take place later that afternoon in Washington, D.C. Over 50 riders wearing bright green Peace Road shirts rode around the D.C. streets, and Andrew Love, pastor of the New Hope Family Church in Bowie, Maryland, emceed the event.
Former congressman John Doolittle remarked, “God raised America so we could have freedom of religion and preach that to the world. We are the only country in the world that proclaims that God is the source of our rights, although it doesn’t always feel like that right now. That’s why we want to have this symbol of unity, the Peace Road, as we celebrate this great country of America.”
As the Peace Road riders made their way back to the top of the National Mall, the 40th anniversary program for the Washington Monument Rally began, drawing over 4,000 people to celebrate True Father’s landmark speech.
