A Different Kind of Battle
Peace shouldn’t just be the burden of the Armed Forces. It’s not just the duty of my father, of Col. Galvez, and of all the other soldiers who were there. Peace shouldn’t just be the burden of the people in Basilan either. Peace is a burden all Filipinos should carry in their hearts. And until we get to that beautiful, poverty-free Philippines that each and every Filipino can be proud of, until we wake up to that peaceful Philippines where each and every Filipino is free to speak, to dream and where no one is left behind, we shouldn’t stop.
