Marawi is a beautiful area in Mindanao with the beautiful lake populated by Maranao people, most of them Muslims. I recall a play of many years ago presented by a Maranao group with the title “Kalilintad, anda ka?” (Peace where are you?). It was a great presentation on the Maranao culture and conflicts among tribes midst a love story. Today, I reflect on the same question: “Peace, where are you?” a question that comes from a reality of war in Marawi that started last May 23. My reflection brings me back to the beginning of my experience in Mindanao.

    Forty years ago when I arrived in Mindanao, I learned the history of conflict that has been one of the reason why, at that time, President Ferdinand Marcos proclaimed Martial law. That situation of violence at that time challenged me to be closer to those who have been suffering most, especially to the Muslims. After years of being closer to the Muslim communities and even to the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) to help in the process of peace, I started the Silsilah Dialogue Movement in 1984 in Zamboanga City.
