Colombian ambassador to the Philippines Marcela Ordoñez writes her message on the “Pledge of Peace” wall during the opening of National Peace Consciousness Month 2022 at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City on Thursday (Sept. 1, 2022). The theme for this year’s Peace Month celebration, “Pagkakaisa at Paghilom: Isang Bansa Para sa Kapayapaan (Unity and Healing: One Nation for Peace),” is to remind Filipinos that through unity and cooperation, the nation can attain genuine and long-lasting peace.
