Peace Documentary, “Great Legacy in the Philippines”

Please Become a Messenger of Peace!

  • Can’t there be no war and no quarrel?
  • To what extent can human selfishness destroy each other?
  • Whose job is it to endure the pain? Are they war-makers or ordinary citizens?

These three questions bother me so much. Even if you give an answer easily, the world does not change easily.

But as I have often said, as long as I like peace organizations, they actually change the world. The story was made into a documentary.

A documentary film about the international peacebuilding efforts for Mindanao in the Philippines, one the world’s long-term conflicts sparked by violence that left over 120,000 deaths and millions of displaced persons since the 1960s was released and screened in the Philippines.

A peace documentary titled “Great Legacy” premiered in a cinema in Davao City on the evening of September 6, 2022.

Davao City Mayor Sebastian Duterte congratulated by saying, “By showing people documentaries and films on peace, we may encourage more to be one with us in our peacekeeping and peacebuilding efforts for our communities.”

“When the light of peace shines in the hearts of people,
it becomes the light that never fades away”

In the film, the former chairperson of the UN Human Rights Commission of the United Nations said that the civil peace agreement in 2014 is an “amazing case of realization of peace that the world should study”.

Someone said “Seeing the Filipinos cheering, I felt the sincerity of the peace activities. Especially, the scene where people’s appearance changed from religious strife to harmony was really touching.”

If you have a chance, it would be nice to see it. It seems to me that peace is not far away. Actually, we just need to change a little bit, but we don’t seem to be trying to change. In fact, we can. If we become one.

One thought on “Peace Documentary, “Great Legacy in the Philippines””

  1. A beautiful, hopeful and somewhat miraculous post. How is that HWPL Chairman Man-hee Lee, who was in his mid-80s at that time, could mediate a cruel, bloody 40-year inter-religious conflict between Catholic and Islamic groups that had claimed 120,000 lives on the island of Mindanao – which no government agency or peacekeeping force could solve – yet so few media organisations report it? Thank YOU for reporting this news of peace. I hope more media outlets will do the same and I will certainly do my part in spreading this news. I have watched the screening of the ‘Great Legacy’ film documentary here in the UK, and it was phenomenal.

    Moreover, whether in Mindanao, Ukraine or the Middle East, war always hits the innocent the hardest, especially women, youth and children. What do you possibly say or do to a mother who loses her son to war? The DPCW is a legal instrument that Chairman Lee of HWPL, who is a 92-year-old Korean War veteran, has conceived and garnered support for from politicians, Heads of State, religious leaders, academic experts and educators, women and youth groups through 31 global peace tours and it proposes a clear solution to permanently ceasing all wars and leaving peace as a legacy for the next generation. I really hope it will be presented to the United Nations in late 2022 or early 2023 so that it can be enacted as international law so that peace can come as soon as possible. Again, thank you for your post, and kudos to Chairman Lee and HWPL.
