The State of Florida today joins the Sri Chinmoy International Peace Blossoms, a family of over 800 landmarks in 50 nations dedicated to the universally cherished goal of peace. May we, the people of Florida, forever embrace this lofty goal in our own hearts, and thus spread peace to our communities, to our nation and to all humankind.
May all who stand on the soil of our beautiful, progressive and peace treasuring State be inspired by its shining achievements—-especially its spirit of fulfilling oneness in blossoming diversity. May all who visit this landmark be inspired to deepen their committment to peace and their aspiration for oneness among all human beings.
The Peace Blossoms are named after Sri Chinmoy, eminent world peace lover and peace-server, for his tireless dedication to the ideal of world harmony. He has fostered peace within the hearts of countless individuals through his prolific literary, musical, and artistic offerings, his global Oneness-Home Peace Run; and his constant encouragement of the spirit of self transcendence and mutual self-giving among people of all nationalities, races, faiths and walks of life.
"Do not stop dreaming! One day your world-peace-dream will inandate the entire world."
