On November 11th, or Remembrance Day, the entire British populace observes a two-minute moment of silence to remember the troops and citizens who lost their lives during the war. The Second World War, which claimed more than 70 million lives, began in 1939 after only 20 years of relative peace, making it the bloodiest and deadliest conflict in recorded human history. The world is currently in a more stressful state than it was just before World War II.

A 60-second global prayer was led on October 16, 2022, in the event "Global Prayers for Love and Peace—Conscience Illuminating the World," to which 108 nations enthusiastically responded.

“Global Prayers for Love and Peace—Conscience Illuminating the World” was held on October 16, 2022 in response to the urgent need for international unity at this time. Dr. Hong Tao-Tze, the Zhang-men-ren of Tai Ji Men, noted in his speech, “Through daily meditation, self-reflection, and repentance, all people are encouraged to awaken their inner conscience, do more good deeds to atone for their mistakes…” Additionally, he declared October 16 to be “World Prayer Day” in order to inspire people to pray for blessings every day, bringing out everyone's positive energy and creating new opportunities for the planet. Dr. Hong Tao-Tze gave special praise to 8 heads of state and other figures of authority who upheld love and peace and rang the peace bell with their own deeds. There are still some who are dedicated to love and peace among them, and future generations will follow the examples of those who have passed away. Life lasts only about one hundred years, which can have an impact on how the world will grow in the future. The mind is the secret. A positive idea can make the world a better place and have an enduring impact, whereas a negative thinking will only cause unending suffering and unexpected results.

“I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.” In addition to other significant historical events, Queen Elizabeth II(1926-2022), who ascended to the throne at the age of 26, had to deal with the British Empire's transformation into the British Association, the Cold War conflict, the decline of British power following World War II, and the challenging post-war reconstruction. Her grace, insight, and kindness made her the spiritual embodiment of Britain and helped the Association of British Nations bring its members together.

Dr. Hong Tao-Tze, the founder of An Era of Conscience movement, said, “With conscience, a peaceful world follows; with happiness, joyful families arrive.” The Queen of England is an excellent example of a leader whose noble inner character provides the greatest sense of security and happiness to her people in the face of the challenges of a troubled world. Elizabeth II gave the Praetorian Guard permission to play the American national song outside Buckingham Palace in remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the United States. The Queen, on the other hand, paid a special visit to the London Mosque to console the loyal Muslims. She has stated that it is the Church of England's responsibility to defend the right of each and every member of the nation's religious community to worship the God they identify with.
