A call for peace and transparency

Malaybalay Bishop Jose Cabantan’s Christmas and New Year Message: Be involved in peace building; be models of transparency and accountability.

The bishop’s message is a good input for reflection to assess performance in 2013 and to plan for 2014.

My favorite phrase: “There is no peace because there are no peacebuilders.” In my words, I will say: “No peacebuilders, no peace.”

I also strongly agree that transparency and accountability (T and A), two very strong values, must be done; not just advocated.

I must add: there should be mechanisms to be built around to ensure T and A will work.
