GPW Session 1 Closing Remarks by Milagros Quiroz Navarro


DEAR FRIENDS, A PLEASANT GOOD AFTERNOON

TO OUR DISTINGUISHED AND DYNAMIC SPEAKERS, INDEED YOU HAVE OPENED OUR MINDS, EYES AND HEARTS ON WHAT ROAD MAP, WE WOMEN SHOULD TAKE.

TO OUR WOMEN LEADERS PARTICIPANTS: YOUR PRESENCE HAD ENRICHED THIS WOMEN”S FORUM AS A MOMENTOUS EVENT TO START THE WOMEN’S MONTH CELEBRATION BECAUSE WE BELIEVE, THE LEARNINGS IMPARTED TO US AND THE EXPERIENCES SHARED BY OUR SPEAKERS WILL HELP US CRAFT OUR RESPECTIVE ORGANIZATION’S WOMEN AGENDA.

TO THE FEW BRAVE MEN WHO CAME TO JOIN US, WE WISH TO LET YOU KNOW, THIS SO-CALLED STRUGGLE FOR WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVE, IF THE MEN FULLY REALIZE OUR NEEDS AND AGREES WITH US.

ONCE AGAIN, IN THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION, WE, WOMEN ARE GATHERED HERE, TO BUILD AND STRENGTHEN BRIDGES OF FRIENDSHIP AMONGST US, ESPECIALLY TO SHARE WITH EACH OTHER OUR HEROIC EXPERIENCES, SUCCESSES IN STRATEGIZING WAYS TOWARDS MAINSTREAMING WOMEN’S SOCIAL PARTICIPATION AND DEVELOPMENT DESPITE OUR DIVERSITY. WE ALL KNOW, THIS CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED THROUGH OUR CONCERTED EFFORTS, OUR CRUSADE TO BREAK BARRIERS AND BIASES BETWEEN ALL OF US, CREATING PEACE AND HARMONY WHILE WORKING TOWARD SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN. BUT REMEMBER, AS OUR SPEAKER REMINDED US, THERE IS AN INCESSANT NEED FOR WOMEN TO STAND UP FOR LASTING PEACE AND HARMONY. CALLING FOR TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP. WITH THESE THOUGHTS, LET OUR ASPIRATIONS, WISHES AND PRAYERS GUIDE US ALONG THIS ARDUOUS PATH OF PEACE AND HARMONY.

            AN IMPORTANT REMINDER:  PLEASE PROCEED IMMEDIETELY TO THE 2 BUSES WAITING FOR US AT THE FRONT ENTRANCE. PLEASE FOLLOW THE LADIES WITH THE PLACARD WHO WILL LEAD YOU TO THE BUS FOR OUR HOME HOSPITALITY NIGHT IN THE RESIDENCE OF DR. NONA RICAFORT. BELIEVE ME THIS WILL BE A FUN NIGHT WITH DELICIOUS PHILIPPINE FOOD AND GORGEOLUS PRESENTATION OF DANCES AND SONGS. THE 12 BUSES WILL LEAVE SA SOON AS THEY ARE FILLED UP.  THANKS SEE YOU TONIGHT.

 

The above is a prepared presentation for the Global Peace Convention 2017. Changes in actual delivery may not be reflected.
