The Philippines celebrates the National Peace Consciousness Month during the month of September every year as mandated under Proclamation No. 675 issued in July 2004. The presidential proclamation was issued to “instill greater consciousness and understanding among the Filipino people on the comprehensive peace process to strengthen and sustain institutional and popular support for and participation in this effort, as well as in the global movement spearheaded by the United Nations to promote a Culture of Peace based on nonviolence, respect for fundamental rights and freedoms, tolerance, understanding and solidarity.” This year’s theme is “Puso para sa Kapayapaan, Magkaisa para sa Bayan”. It reflects the positive change we want our country to achieve. It also remind us to put a little more understanding and respect to one another so that despite our many differences, having a diverse culture can be the strength of our country. #  Source –
