“We were there” is a site dedicated to record the experiences of the first generation on the front line and attending True Parents. This site is a repository of stories and photos and is a gift to the second generation and all future generations. We encourage all brothers and sisters to share your own special stories, testimonies, or memories with the world so these treasures won’t be lost. Please send in your written, audio, or video stories and photos. In the menu above, click on Share your story page to share your testimony or email it to email@example.com.
* All submissions will be reviewed by “We were there” administrators before showing on the site. Some submissions of photos will display people no longer associated with the movement. We apologize, not wanting to offend anyone and will remove photos when appropriate. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
