Becoming Aware That Peace Is Doable
Everyone wants peace. It has always been a cliche that everyone wishes for world peace. And wishing makes it seem that it is impossible to achieve.
But our guest for this episode shares with us that peace is doable. The first step is to become aware that it is possible.
Samira Gutoc is a Maranao activist, writer, and politician. She was a representative of the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Assembly for Women Sector during the time of Pres. Benigno Aquino III and a member of the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) during the time of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte.
With her early exposure to different nationalities at a young age and these government positions, she spreads the word that peace is doable by learning about each other. Filipinos should learn about each other first to attain peace. Think about how you care for a loved one. You try to get to know that person - what she loves and dislikes. If we try to achieve peace, we should open our minds to understand other people.
Listen to Ms. Samira Gutoc as she shares ways to become better by becoming aware that peace is indeed doable.
