40th Anniversary of the Yankee Stadium Rally

We’ve had a very exciting week of celebrations commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Yankee Stadium rally. At the God Bless America Family Festival on Sunday, June 5, True Mother addressed a crowd of a few thousand on the topic of America’s responsibility in God’s providence, and we witnessed a second weather miracle on the Hudson. True Mother presided over a breakfast celebration the day after the festival, where she called on America to pioneer a principled culture of the arts. Finally, on June 8, True Mother departed from New York to the sound of exuberant cheers from Generation Peace Academy (GPA), who were there to wish her well on her way back to Korea.

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Yankee Stadium rally, we have compiled the video and text of the speech given by True Father on June 1, 1976 for your perusal
