Letter from Pedro

Hello, I’m Pedro.
I live in Danellandia,
an imaginary world of Peace
and humanity.

I was born in a family
where love and peace
were always on the menu.
I was taught what real values
mean in life.

I was taught that friends
are cherished and cared for.
Already as a child
I felt bad when people quarrelled.
As an adolescent
I would stand up for my friends.
As an adult
I could visit many places
all around the world.
I met presidents
and also visited shanty towns.
I saw extreme riches
and utter poverty first hand.
The contrast between rich and poor
made a deep scratch on my heart.
It has been bleeding ever since.

Years later I was attacked
verbally and continuously by
some 
not having the right values.
For weeks on end they put pressure on me.
I finally could not cope
and I experienced
what we called a brain stop.

My “brain” decided to help me.
It switched off my contact
with the real “bad” world.
And showed me a new world.
A better and more just world.
I was gone for a while
until the love of my sweetheart
and of my family brought me back.
Back into the real world.

I felt disappointed at first.
But I had ideas to share
to make this world better.
It was a dream come true.
It all led to Danellandia.

Later on, I started to correspond
with my friends and
with people from around the world
of different races, religions and cultures.
About peace, love, human values,
friendship and – yes – God.

We came to the conclusion
that there is only one God or something
that no human being can really fathom.
And that human values
are the basis for a
better and more just world.

Human values or humanity
are a bridge to a fuller life.
They are a bridge to
an extra dimension in life.
A dimension that stays on
even after we pass away.

Danellandia wants to inspire
countries, leaders and other people
to strengthen their humanity.
It analyzes the world
and its problems
and makes suggestions
towards resolving them.
It proposes summonism
in politics, economics and religion.
Summonism or the aspiration
to attain the summum bonum,
the supreme good that is
constructed on human values.

We hope that one day
Danellandia will be a household word
meaning peace, humanity and love.
And that many people will
want to be a Danellandian
contributing to a better world.

My heart is still bleeding
but prospects are it will stop to do so
with the help of many people.
People believing in peace,
love and humanity.
People believing in innate goodness
and having the willingness to bring it out.

Pedro
