My Dream 2000by Robert Muller
(Chancellor of the University for Peace and
Former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations)
That on 1 January 2000
The whole world will stand still
In prayer, awe and gratitude
For our beautiful, heavenly Earth
And for the miracle of human life.
That young and old, rich and poor,
Black and white,
Peoples from North and South,
From all beliefs and cultures
Will join hands, minds and hearts
In an unprecendented, universal
Bimillennium Celebration of Life.
That the year 2000
Will be declared World Year of Thanksgiving
By the the United Nations.
That during the year 2000
Innumerable celebrations and events
Will take place all over the globe
To gauge the long hard road covered by humanity
To study our mistakes
And to plan the feats
Still to be accomplished
For the full flowering of the human race
In peace, justice and happiness.
That the few remaining years
To the Bimillennium
Be devoted by all humans, nations and institutions
To unparalleled thinking, action,
Determination and love
To solve our remaining problems
And to achieve
A peaceful, united human family on Earth.
That the third millennium
Will be declared
Humanity's First Millennium of Peace.
