Peace in Our Time

September 19, 2008

Our Joey Velasco this Friday is entitled The Gift of Peace.

Your Midfielder feels this opus is timely as Filipinos recall the 1972 declaration of martial law with the conflict in  Mindanao continuing to simmer.

Lanao del Sur has been the focal point of the latest incidents with Moro rebels ambushing a military patrol and killing 1 soldier. The military retaliated with new aerial attacks, climing to have killed 7 MILF fighters.

The MILF has warned anew of full blown war and is asking the international community’s intercession.

The young boy in our featured Velasco painting bears the hope all Filipinos are keeping in their hearts: the attainment of peace in out time.
