On 6 October 2007 The Washington Post reported:
Developer Jeffrey Abramson lays out plans for a 12-storey Tower of Invincibility, a monument to peace and freedom, to be built in the middle of Washington, DC.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
The Washington Post reported, 'In the often carnivorous, mine-is-bigger-than-yours realm of real estate developers, Jeffrey Abramson stands apart. If his peers are prone to huff and puff about their latest land grabs, Abramson is just as likely to talk of universal harmony. Twice a day, he sits in a chair for 20 minutes, closes his eyes and practices Transcendental Meditation.'
The article stated, 'The idea for the tower, Abramson said, came from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the purveyor of Transcendental Meditation . . . . Plans for similar towers, Abramson said, are underway in New Zealand, Germany and Canada.'
The developer plans to discuss the peace tower with Washington's Mayor Adrian M. Fenty.
He also wants input from Washington residents or 'anyone who would like to see our nation as a monument to peace' before he chooses a location.
The article stated that Abramson had already received hundreds of suggestions on his web site, and plans to take suggestions for the next month, but the final decision will be his own.
The Washington Post quoted Abramson as saying, 'I'm a builder. I know what to do.'
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
