Bohol celebrates Provincial Day of Peace

BOHOL, Feb. 12 (PIA)--The province commemorated yesterday the declaration of Bohol as "Insurgency-Free Bohol" dubbed as the Provincial Day of Peace.

Six years ago, the province was declared insurgency free. In 2014, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan passed Resolution 2014-005 declaring February 11 as Provincial Day of Peace in order to put value on peace, order and human security. It also saw the launching of a Non-killing Boholano society where rule of law prevails. 

The Provincial Day of Peace kicked off with a Walk/Run for Peace and Development from CPG Sports Complex to Plaza Rizal at 4 a.m..

At 7 a.m., Bohol leaders and stakeholder representatives attended a Holy Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral where Diocese of Tagbilaran Bishop Leonardo Medroso delivered a homily on Jesus and the values of understanding, compassion and grace as the key to peace.
In the afternoon, a motorcade from Sandugo Monument and a parade from Plaza Rizal going to CPG Sports Complex started simultaneously at 3 p.m. 

A commemorative program followed at CPG Sports Complex where Bohol leaders, national/provincial/city government offices, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) and students attended the program themed “Kahiusahan, Kalinaw Ug Kalambuan”, which featured messages of peace through speeches, contests and presentations. 

Gov. Edgar Chatto, in a message read by Board Member Benjie Arcamo, underscored peace as a shared responsibility as he spoke of peace as a prerequisite to development. The governor thanked law enforcers, citizens, students, professionals, farmers, fisher folks, and all Boholanos who are united in working towards making Bohol crime-free, insurgency free, drug free and trouble free. 

"Our collective sacrifice is best rewarded with a progressive society founded on peace, harmony & mutual respect,” Chatto said. 

The Boholanos ended the activity by lighting candles and formed the peace sign during the program in observance of the Provincial Day of Peace. (ecb/PIA7-Bohol)
