Living for the Sake of Others - Perspectives on the Meeting:
Robin Marsh and Margaret Ali welcomed UPF's Ambassadors of Peace, friends and newer members of the Youth UPF on Tuesday 30th July at Lancaster Gate. The event was enjoyed by all as they were reminded of UPF's core values of being One Family under God, and how it is natural for all to be Living for the Sake of Others.
'I have enjoyed myself very much and have a lot to say next time we meet', Peace Aryee said, grabbing my hand as I was saying farewell to people at the end of the event.
Last night was a very special, intimate, inspiring afternoon tea with Ambassadors For Peace (AFP). For the first time we had around ten young people who joined over thirty AFP. The evening started with people gathering in the Lancaster Gate Café discussing, chatting and having snacks. It felt like a big rendezvous and when the young people started coming in one by one, it didn’t feel awkward as we were welcomed at their tables.

It was with deep regret that all at Universal Peace Federation learned of the passing yesterday of our renowned former Prime Minister and dear friend Baroness Thatcher, after a stroke. We join with so many others around the nation and the entire world in mourning her passing and expressing our heartfelt condolences to her family - particularly her two children, Sir Mark Thatcher and Ms Carol Thatcher. Our thoughts and prayers at this sad time are with Lady Thatcher herself (may she truly rest in peace!) and with her surviving family!
