The publication gives the limelight to the young generation's aspirations and musings on peace. It aims to explore the youth's apathy towards armed conflict in the Philippines as well as the youth's roles and reflections on peace. What makes an uninitiated and apathetic youth turn into a staunch advocate for peace? When you think peace, what exactly are you thinking of?

From the superficial to the abysmally grounded peace-losophies to the artistique, we'd like to read your piece or join you in your peace journey to "Anagnorisis"

=======================
Anagnorisis:
Greek word meaning "recognition"
in a literary work, the startling discovery that produces a change from ignorance to knowledge. In this context, the recognition from war to peace, the moment of awakening that the enemy is your brother; the knowledge that we were apathetic of armed conflict and violence in the country, but are now reflecting upon, contemplating, even advocating, peace.

    • Generation Peace Youth Network Anagnorisis: Isang Pagtuklas at Pagkamulat sa Kapayapaan - 01 A Call for Submission: Essay, Poetry, Short Story and Photography Introduction (laktawan ito at dumiretso sa pahina 3 kung ayaw mong gumulo pa ang iyong buhay) Generation Peace Youth Network (GenPeace) encourages young writers and photographers (15- 30 years old) to submit photography and literary works for a published collection on peace. Your nose can provide a befitting and comic analogy for the youth’s notions on peace. It is so close to your eyes, and something very important for your survival and yet you do not see it most of the time. You take it for granted, unless it runs or clogs or the cosmos conspires against your nose by sticking an enormous zit on top of it (then you notice and try to look at it for a long time).
    • Generation Peace Youth Network Anagnorisis: Isang Pagtuklas at Pagkamulat sa Kapayapaan - 02 For most of the youth in the country today, peace is ironically both a closely familiar and distantly alien concept. Familiar because pop culture had romanticized it since the hippie 70s: the anti-nuke symbol which became popularized as the peace symbol, the “no to war” campaigns the world over, the peace songs like “Imagine” by John Lennon and that kapayapaan song by Tropical Depression , and so on. And yet, peace is also very abstract and distant for most of the Filipino youth. Peace is seen as simply the absence of war. Since a vast majority of youth in the Philippines do not experience wars firsthand nor even keep abreast of national current/historical events such as the four decades of self-determination struggle of the Bangsamoro and another four decades of the Communist struggle, peace as a beyond war concept is rarely reflected upon. We, as the young generation, need to reflect on and re- imagine our notions of peace. In 2009, GenPeace spearheaded the Philippine celebration of the International Day of Peace on the 21st of September, where a youth documentary was created. For this year’s celebration, we invite YOUth to send us your perspectives on peace through POETRY, ESSAYS, SHORT STORIES and PHOTOS. There are many faces of peace and unpeace as there are many faces of youth. GenPeace believes that peace is not just the absence of war but is defined by something much bigger. In the Philippine context this may mean: jobs, justice, food and freedom. Or the 6 Paths to Peace popular among peace advocates. Or it may mean addressing historical injustices. Or simply being able to eat three square meals a day. We encourage you to define, understand and present peace in your own way. Isang mapayapang pagbati sa ating lahat!
    • Generation Peace Youth Network Anagnorisis: Isang Pagtuklas at Pagkamulat sa Kapayapaan - 03 A Call for Submissions: Essay, Poetry, Short Story and Photography Theme: Ang tema para sa iba’t ibang categories ay lahat ng mga bagay na hindi kasya sa iyong ilong. (Nilampasan mo kasi ang intro, kaya hindi mo nagets ito) Ang nais ng GenPeace ay mapahinto ka at ang mga mambabasa at makapagmuni-muni ng: “Ano nga ba ang kapayapaan? Anong ibig sabihin nito sa akin? Ano ang karahasan o giyera? Pano ko ito naranasan, naramdaman, nakita o naisip? May nais ba akong mensahe sa mga kapwa ko kabataan? Iba ba ang kapayapaan para sa akin at para sa ibang tao? Paano ba ako nagising at namulat na kailangan ako sa pagbabago ng lipunan? Ano ba ang wish ko para sa Pilipinas?” Ang lahat o ilan (o wala) sa mga katanungang ito ang dapat lamanin ng iyong isusulat o lilitratuhan, ang mahalaga ay: 1) iyong repleksyon sa kapayapaan o karahasan; 2) ang kaugnayan ng iyong ideya sa pagkamit (o di-pagkamit) ng kapayaan. Kahit ang iyong ilong (at lahat ng hindi nagkakasya dito) ay maaaring simula ng iyong repleksyon sa kapayapaan o bakit wala nito.
