On their 44th wedding anniversary, David starting building Das Seinundsie Liebesplatz, their very own special distinctive sui generis personal loveseat.  Located in a secluded area in the gardens at the ARK in Berea, David plans to add something to the loveseat every year with plans to finish it for their 50th wedding anniversary.  Renate, who is recovering from ovarian cancer, now has something to look forward to in the upcoming years. 

The name Seinundsie Liebesplatz is a pun on words.  It’s meaning in English is His-and-Her Love Spot and while it is a quiet love place to sit, engraved in the chair are His-and-Her “Love Places”.  David said he added this to make this sculpture an original and unique piece of environmental artwork because he assumes that like fingerprints, every person’s “Love Place” place is unique also

‘You cannot buy another planet'

They say that out of the mouths of babes come pearls of wisdom. That was true of the young Germans gathered for a WCPM Global Youth Symposium held in conjunction at the German Central Park during the Cleveland 2017 German American Festival. The goal of the session was to motivate German organizations from the Stadtverband to work with local partners to energize everyone through hands on service.

So it was that the noble speeches by some of our leading politicians were being upstaged by the Worlds Children representing Germany who spoke home truths about immigration, peace, power and corruption in global affairs.

"The Worlds Children are disappointed with you," young Justine from North Royalton scolded the politicians.

"The adults are too concerned about their own money and wealth to think about our future," a 14 year old from Cleveland declared.

Adam from Fairview Park warned….You cannot buy another planet.
When People commit crimes, they are sent to jail.  Why is it so difficult to punish those who harm other people, plants and animals that make up the environment?

"We are tired of wondering whether it will snow during summer." he added, urging the United States and other Nations to get more involved in climate change.

Joining them was Heidi and Ursula from Parma.  They were not too sure about corruption in world politics, but were adamant that "big people must never cheat on the Worlds Children".

Afterwards, they were congratulated by Ambassador Renate, who said:  "If we were to hear All the Worlds Children, and if we were to get them to decide about the destiny of the world, then it is there that we will find the truth and the path with Iceality."

Ambassador Renate was doubtful that the present free-market development model could be reformed adequately without the Theory of Iceality.  She was deeply critical of the poverty caused by "neo-liberal development models imposed by powerful elites and it is unacceptable that 15% of the world's people received 80% of its income".

"Neo-liberalism is inhumane," she said.  "We need to tell the truth, and we can only do this if we have the new political and social morality like that proposed by the Peace Imitative from EXPO 2000 in Germany, the Worlds Children Peace Monument."

The President of the Ohio German American Business Association (OhioGABA), David Jakupca said, 
“The Democrats failed to make positive permanent progress and squandered the eight years under President Barrack Obama. By now, all of the North East Ohio politicians should have endorsed the building of the Cleveland based National coast-to-coast ‘Great American Peace Trail”. But in Cuyahoga County political elites, working hard with greedy business people and unscrupulous investors, are putting private gain before the peace and welfare of the citizens and blocking the public economic development of the region. Now under President Trump, they are practicing a new form of ‘Rocking Horse Policy' where there is lot of waste of time and resources going back and forth without making any real permanent progress….this is No-Way to a sustainable future.  
PARMA Peace Stone
Great American Peace Trail
A special plaque for the Parma Peace Stone was installed during the festival at the Memorial Garden of The German Central Park by Jimmy Halm, the park’s facilities manager.  The Parma Peace Stone represents the German Peace Initiative that was conceived during EXPO 2000, the World’s Fair held in Hannover, Germany. It was designed and built by David Jakupca at the historic ARK in Berea as a project of the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) in cooperation with the United Nations 2000 Culture of Peace Program. The concept of a physical permanent universal symbol of renewal and living peace for all living things was organized in support of the UN Decade of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. The incorporation of the rights of flora and fauna in a "Universal Peace Equation" is the first major change in achieving a sustainable global Culture Peace on Earth in over 2000 Years. http://theicea.com/page22
The WCPM was officially inaugurated in 2003 at the 3rd World Peace Conference held in Verbania, Italy where it received an Italian Medal of Arts Award. It was presented as a 'gift' to the people of Cleveland to be located at the Cleveland Cultural Gardens, it was debuted at its present location at Coe Lake Park in Berea, Ohio.
The WCPM Project is to encourage positive community participation through the establishment of international site-specific works of public art, through cultural education and entrepreneurial training to children around the World. The WCPM Appraisal is another step forward to nationalizing ‘Great American Peace Trail’, the coast-to-coast trail of WCPM Peace Stones in city parks designed to stop the violence in America’s youth. The WCPM Appraisal also serves as a milestone for the 'Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts' and that is, promoting a sustainable global Culture of Peace for all Living Things. http://theicea.com/page33

Ambassador Renate of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) reacts to Manchester terrorists attack with THIS heartfelt message...

'An attack on innocents': World reacts with shock and horror to Manchester explosion

Ambassador Renate of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) has joined the outpouring of grief in the wake of the Manchester Arena terror attack to express her condolences to all the victims of the suicide bombing which left 22 people dead.

The First Lady of Peace said in a statement outside the ARK in Berea, expressed her “deepest sympathy” and condemned the “act of barbarity” that targeted some of the youngest people in our society with cold calculation.

The statement says: “All the Worlds Children have been shocked by the death and injury in Manchester last night of so many people, adults and children, who had just been enjoying a concert. “I know I speak for everyone in expressing my deepest sympathy to all who have been affected by this dreadful event and especially to the families and friends of those who have died or were injured.”

“And I would like to express my admiration for the way the people of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) have responded, with humanity and compassion, to this act of barbarity.”

Pakistani Peace Emissary Baba Brohi also expressed his condolences. In a related statement he said: “I am left shocked and saddened by the tragedy that unfolded in Manchester overnight. Hundreds of parents, Worlds Children, and WCPM partners are sharing unimaginable grief today, and we send our thoughts to them all.”

Ambassador Renate addressed her heartfelt statement to the people using Iceality involved in Arts and Culture. That such a large number of people, including so many young music lovers, the Worlds Children of our Society, lost their lives or have suffered so much in this appalling cultural atrocity is deeply distressing and fills us with intense sadness, especially since the worlds number one tool for social change is the Theory of Iceality that utilizes art and culture.

“Words cannot adequately express what so many families must be feeling at this incredibly difficult time and our most heartfelt sympathy is with all those who have so tragically lost loved ones or who have been affected in some way.” she stated.

The Science behind Peace and Global Harmony is the "Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts". Developed in 1987, it is the practical study on the aesthetics of the relationship between Humans and their Environment through Arts and Culture, ultimately promoting an effective sustainable global Culture of Peace between all Living Things ~ Human, Plant and Wildlife Kingdoms! The incorporation of the rights of flora and fauna in a "Universal Peace Equation" is the first major change in achieving a sustainable global Culture Peace on Earth in over 2000 Years. http://theicea.com/page2

Cleveland Fashion Ideas on How to wear Shorts in Spring

Streetfashionista Ambassador Renate @ the 'Q' 
making the shorts-and-tights trend super fancy,
 with Cleveland Cavaliers wine colored tights
 and sequined sweater vest, warm poncho,
newsboy hat and boots. 

For obvious reasons, shorts are traditionally a fashion statement for warmer weather, but here on the North Coast in Cleveland, where a prolonged chilly winter gives way to a late Summer, shorts in Spring can become a necessary fashion item for women who want Winter to end.  

Unlike the Bavarian Lady's who wear short Lederhosen all year round, most Women in Cleveland put away their shorts before the cold fall and winter days, opting for jeans, pants, and tights instead until the hot summer sun prompts us to bring them back out. Except…we don’t really have to do that, because it’s totally possible to wear shorts in the Spring and make them look amazing. And warm, because that is clearly the most important thing on a sunny but cold day in Cleveland.

I’ve seen a lot of people pull off the shorts-and-tights (strumphosen) trend with ease, managing to look put-together and effortlessly styled at the same time. I have tried this myself and I kind of feel like it can be pulled off by anyone who is scared by the idea. But these outfit ideas below might change your mind. From distressed blue denim shorts worn with dainty heels to more formal shorts paired with cardigans, these looks are unexpected, fun, and refreshingly unique during a pre-summer season when it sometimes feel like we’re all too bundled up. 

Here are some fashion ideas on how to wear shorts in spring that will inspire you to take yours out of the drawer before July 4th!

Huggs~  Ambassador Renate 

Katy Mielrose wears a colorful outfit featuring denim and black white spotted tights
Leather always looks good no matter what the season!
Mia Chen sports the glamorous look and stays warm with an over sized scarf to stay warm no matter how cold the winds blow on Play House Square.
You don’t have to do blue or black shorts!
Betty Anderson makes this mauve pair looks awesome with black patterned tights at the Galleria.
Danielle Reedy adding more shorts and tights - love at the Asian Festival! 
Eurostyle Fruhling ensemble from Maria Donnellan at the Library.
Sneakers, poncho, braun kurze hose schwarz strumpfhose
Denim shorts sometimes look better with stocking than with tights.
Karen Davis adds brown booties with a beige jacket, and she has an easy, cozy outfit.
Make your outfit stand out with fancy tights that have an unusual color pattern on them, like India Keyes has with these animal prints. 
Welche Shorts für welche Figur?
So kombiniert ihr Shorts richtig!Inspiration gefällig?
Das sind die schönsten Looks mit Shorts für JEDE Wetterlage!
Kelly Laret - Das ist zwar keine Jeans Shorts, aber die Kombi würde bestimmt
auch mit ner Shorts + Strumpfhose

Heels and booties look good with shorts, but you can go with
white sneakers, which make a good contrast! Tight denim
shorts look very trendy with black motorcycle jacket and
white sneakers, wear a warm sweater,
and you’re good to go.

Terry Campell shows that even super short shorts can work -
especially when you add layers on top.

Looking forward to summertime in the Sun with the dogs.

The Ambassador of Peace, Comfortable in ‘Green’, Joins Pakistan in Imploring 'Protection' of Mother Earth and All the Worlds Children

Worlds Children Peace Monument's International Mother Earth Day 2017 Celebration
Margalla Hills National Park
Islamabad, Pakistan

ARK in Berea (ICEAnews) - Members of Pakistan World Peace Daily had reasons to be excited and joyful during their Mother Earth celebration of the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) on April 22, 2017 that was organized by Pakistani Peace Emissary, Baba Brohi in Margalla Hills National Park at Islamabad, Pakistan.  Starting with the announcement of the many new trees to planted and the celebration afterword, they showed the same sensitivity for nature as they do for people and their love for the wild places.
Baba Brohi
Pakistan Peace Emissary

In her testament honoring the work of the Pakistani People, for their generous voluntary care of Mother Earth, Ambassador Renate meditated on the people’s role as protectors of Pakistan, the Planet and for All the Worlds Children:
“Let us,” she urged, “protect Mother Earth in our lives, so that we can protect others, and protect All the Worlds Children.” That means, she explained in a simple way, “protecting ourselves and the beauty of the natural world, as the Theory of Iceality shows us: respecting each of God’s creatures and respecting the environment in which they live.”
Dr. Renate continued to describe in detail a Worlds Children ethic of iceality care: “It means protecting people, animals and plants, especially showing loving concern for each and every person, especially children, the elderly, those in need, who are often the last we think about. It means caring for one another in our families: husbands and wives first protect one another, and then, as parents, they care for their children, and children themselves, in time, protect their parents. It means building sincere friendships in which we protect one another in trust, respect, and goodness. In the end, everything has been entrusted to our protection, and all of us are responsible for it. We are all protectors of Mother Earth’s gifts!”

She made a special plea to world leaders to join the Worlds Children in this ethic. “Please, I would like to ask all those with positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of good will: Let us be protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of All the Worlds Children and of the their environment.”
Ambassador Renate
This message is a positive one, calling for goodness and tenderness in the treatment of all others and the world. Addressing the hard-hardheartedness many presume to be necessary for survival in this world, she declared, “We must not be afraid of goodness, nor even of tenderness!”

In conclusion, the Ambassador spoke of the role of the Pakistani Peace Emissary as a Guardian. “To protect the whole of Pakistan, to protect each person, especially the poorest, to protect the Animals and the Plants: this is a service that Baba Brohi has called to carry out, yet one to which all of us are called, so that the star of hope will shine brightly for future generations: "Let us protect with love all that Mother Earth has given us!”

The result of a major global public promotion at the United Nations level, is that the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts is now considered as the cornerstone of the modern global sustainable culture of peace movement and this concept is now replicated by artists, architects, urban planners and sustainable organizations throughout the World, reflecting a still growing global audience, including:
