SAMUEL HYO-IL HUNEYCUTT
December 9, 1988 - September 22, 2022

Sam Huneycutt was born in New York City on a cold, wintry night, and he grew up in the south and spent most of his life in North Carolina. He was an intelligent and athletic child, particularly talented in soccer. In middle school, he became self-conscious and by high school, he was so acutely shy that it was a struggle for him to graduate. Even so, he took advanced courses and ran competitively with the cross-country team.

After graduation he turned his attention to computer games, at which he excelled due to quick reflexes and intensive research. He spent six months in a leadership training program called Next Gen Academy, where he challenged himself to fundraise, do service projects and expand his horizons.

Sam eventually became interested in environmental issues, learning about composting and electric cars. He became vegan and loved shopping at Perkins Orchard in Durham and local farmer's markets. He rode his bike whenever possible.

He became interested in Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism, and took a train to Florida to attend a Metaphysical Conference, camping there for two weeks. He flew to Hawaii to spend a month with a Healing Community, studying the ancient Hawaiian spiritual practice of Ho'oponopono. Sam showed an example for all of us by taking time to forgive those who had hurt him and offering apologies to those he felt he might have offended.

He is survived by his parents, Bob and Ryoko Huneycutt, his sister Kay and her husband James Love, brother Gene and his wife Marina and their daughter Grace, brothers Ken and Thomas and sister Natsuyo, as well as his grandmother, Colly Beck of Havelock and aunt, Donna Carter of Newport News. His family gratefully acknowledges all the kind sentiments and abundant love that brought consolation during this time of loss and ascension.


Seonghwa
"Joyful Ascension"

A Seonghwa Ceremony is actually comparable to a wedding, when men and women get married. It's not a sorrowful occasion at all. It's like an insect coming out of its cocoon, getting rid of a shackle and becoming a new body and a new existence, a new entity. That's exactly the same kind of process.

In our way of life and tradition, spirit world and physical world are one, and by our living up to that kind of idea, we bring the two worlds together into one.

In the secular world, death signifies the end of life. However, in our world, death is like a rebirth or a new birth into another world. For this reason, we should not make those occasions gloomy or sad or feel discouraged.

If we here on earth become very mournful or gloomy, it is like pulling the person who is going up to the heavens down to the earth.

Sun Myung Moon
January 7, 1984


Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body, we are away from the Lord. We live by faith, not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So we make it our goal to please Him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.

II Corinthians 5:6-9

The History of Connectivity and the Peace Road

Humankind's desire to reach out to other peoples is one that goes back to ancient times. Trade routes and infrastructure have been vital to the growth and stability of civilizations since the dawn of human history. Until roughly 9,000 BCE, a land bridge connected Siberia and Alaska, allowing humans to cross from Afro-Eurasia into the Americas. Around 114 BCE, the Han Dynasty of China expanded its Central Asian trade network, creating the "Silk Road," which contributed to the economic and cultural interconnectedness of Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania for millennia thereafter.

The Romans built a massive network of roads throughout their Empire, connecting Western Europe to the Middle East and North Africa, many of which are still in use today, after thousands of years. President Dwight Eisenhower, a former general, concerned about the United States' ability to mobilize in the face of military attack, advocated for the building of the interstate highway system, which was authorized by the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956.

In 1994, the Channel Tunnel or "Chunnel," was completed, creating the first-ever fixed link between the island of Great Britain and continental Europe. In 2013, the People's Republic of China launched the Belt and Road Initiative, an ambitious global development involving infrastructure development and investments in 152 countries. The vision of the Peace Road Initiative goes beyond the materialistic desire for the economic and political benefits of an international road, and champions the spiritual dimension, which aims to tear down the walls that have historically divided us - racism and cultural differences, prejudice and fear - and bring humankind together as one family under God.

"Peace Road" is a global peace project aimed at actualizing the "International Peace Highway" originally proposed by Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon at the 10th International Conference on the unity of the Sciences on November 10, 1981 in Seoul, South Korea.

Peace Road was created as an educational initiative to raise public awareness of the vision of the International Peace Highway and two of its key components: an undersea tunnel between Korea and Japan, and a Bering Strait tunnel to connect Alaska and Siberia. The focus of Peace Road 2021 is the tunnel that would connect the U.S. and Russia, running under the Bering Strait.

Physically linking these two nations by tunnel and road would be just the beginning of a profound alteration in how we perceive each other, encouraging a realization on both sides that we truly are neighbors.

Until today, there has never been a road or highway specifically conceived and built as a highway to world peace. The International Peace Highway epitomizes Father and Mother Moon's conviction that humanity is one family under God and that if people could meet each other in daily life, through culture, trade, and travel, the historic fears and misunderstandings that often divide us from our closest neighbors would break down in the face of our increased mutual familiarity. The Peace Road ideal has expanded now to include promoting the Unification of the Korean Peninsula.

"This will be able to connect the world through a super highway, starting from Cape of Good Hope in South Africa to Santiago in Chile, and from London to New York, making the world a single community."
Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon (120 Nations Speaking Tour for World Peace, May to August, 2006)

"The vision is for a high-speed transportation artery linking the entire globe. On the day of its completion, much of our world will become one village linked by one road. The process of constructing the highway itself provides the world's peoples and governments a common purpose. The transnational lines of commerce and recreation that open up will stimulate inter-ethnic exchange of culture and goods, and draw us to live in harmony as neighbors." 
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, Mother of Peace
