Here are more pictures of the recent concluded peace art exhibit, Chalk Drawings on Public Street,” shared by Business World correspondent Darwin Wee in his Facebook account. It was held in Normal Street near Western Mindanao State University last March 14.  Darwin stated that using their "weapons of mass creation” such as canvas, brushes, pastels, acrylics, and chalks, local artists led by renowned Tausug visual artist and peace activist Rameer Tawasil urged the governments of Malaysia, Philippines, and the eaders of the Sulu sultanate to start the negotiations and discontinue the use of violence in trying to assert whatever rights they have over Sabah, formerly known as North Borneo.


And I do agree with Darwin.  Let the leaders of both conflicting parties’ seat down and talk in peace. Personally, I don’t agree with what they did but the issue about this has been taken for granted. The future of these kids in the pictures taken will be greatly affected in the future if it will escalate to a worse situation.

"But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all things). (The Noble Quran, 8:61)"
