Do you know a peace documentary? There are still quite a few people in the world who seek peace.
I really admire them. Because they endure things that are difficult for others to pursue easily. I think it’s more noble.
The peace documentary was very touching. As if it were not easy to see plants grow, I felt like I was watching peace bloom like a flower right next to me.
It’s a breakthrough in ending the 50-year bloody conflict in Mindanao, the Philippines
A procession of 10,000 people who filled a total distance of 19.9km is shouting.
Has the peace that men and women of all ages desperately shouted for come?
Mindanao Island in the southern Philippines.
The land where death was closer to life than to say, “When peace comes to Mindanao, world peace comes.”
The armed conflict between the Philippine government and Mindanao militants, which began with the “Massacre in Morocco” in the 1960s, has turned into a confrontation between Catholic and Islamic religions, killing 120,000 people over the past 50 years.
The peace documentary “The Great Legacy” captures the end of the conflict through HWPL’s movement that began in 2014 in Mindanao, Philippines.
In particular, the Philippine locals, who melted the weapons used in the civil war to create an HWPL peace monument and wished for peace on the divided Korean Peninsula, resonated with the hearts of the audience and applauded.
The film highlights the HWPL civilian peace agreement ceremony held in Mindanao General Santos City, Philippines on January 24, 2014.
The Chairman Lee Man-hee brought together leaders and locals from both sides who were at the center of the Mindanao conflict. He asked them to raise their hands if they wanted peace, and when all the participants raised their hands, Lee led the two leaders to sign for peace.
Upon hearing the news of the peace agreement, government forces and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) finally agreed on the final annex of the preliminary peace agreement on January 25, and the civil war was effectively ended with the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) in March 2014.
The Chairman Lee Man-hee said “We are a family of peace that will achieve peace born in this era. Do you want conflict or peace?”
All people shouted “PEACE!”
HWPL’s sincere efforts and the Chairman Lee’s sincerity made a dramatic peace, which was considered a challenge that could never be solved.
It’s a dangerous place for terrorism and accidental danger. The situation in the Philippines is not easy to push ahead with work among soldiers with guns. Even in such a place, not everyone can risk death to enter. I was really touched by this.
One field participant said, “The first overseas volunteer destination I went to was the Philippines, and I personally found it fascinating to see the first scene people cheering. Since our country is a divided country, we should be more interested in peace than anyone else.
But I really felt that Filipinos are more interested in peace activities than anyone else. After watching this preview, I felt that peace was really coming, so I thought about various activities, including small things and talking about joining together.”
The miracle of peace achieved by everyone being united is recorded as a “great legacy” in later generations. I hope we can all be messengers of peace.
Is your hobby walking? A person who walks more than 30 minutes a day is definitely more likely to be healthy. It can absorb vitamin D, makes you feel much better, and helps with blood circulation.
I think each person has a different reason to walk. Someone walks for health, someone for enlightenment, and someone to shake off negative emotions.
There are people walking for peace right here. As one of the peace lovers, I’m also walking, pondering why they walk.
On May 25 this year, people started walking offline again. I’ve been interested in the people of hwpl for a long time, they proceeded online during the COVID-19.
I’ve seen countless people in Santiago walking for their own enlightenment, someone for sightseeing. But many of the people walking for peace seem to be hwpl people.
There are so many pictures of them on the blog so far. Sometimes when I look back at the gallery, it’s even touching.
Why on earth do they walk? What drives them?
Why do people in HWPL get together especially more often? I think it is because there is a centripetal force that strongly gathers them.
I think it is because there is the chairman Lee Man-hee, a soldier who experienced the Korean War and shouted for peace while touring around the world more than 30 times, and he tries to achieve peace without a break even at the age of 90.
If someone like the chairman lee man-hee takes the lead, can you stay still? How passionate he is!
If you have a chance someday, I hope you listen to him. There is a powerful force in what he says.
HWPL’s 10th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace and the Peace Walk
You can hear it here. I think it is best to experience peace in person. If you don’t experience it in a small moment in your daily life, I think you can never achieve the peace that is ideally expressed.
On the same day, various areas in the Philippines held simultaneous events in partner schools and communities particularly in Cavite, Laguna, Lucban, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija and Cotabato City.
