Solidarity with Israel for peace and justice: Sen. Risa Hontiveros joins her colleagues in commemorating the 75th Anniversary of Israel's independence, Monday, May 10, 2023, by supporting the adoption of Senate Resolution No. 552 at the plenary session. The deputy minority leader, in her manifestation, quoted a poem by American-Israeli poet Alden Solovy, which calls for the restoration of peace and justice to the world. "Together with the peace-loving people of Israel and the whole world, we bend our heads with a prayer for peace and justice. A prayer that our common humanity brings us together, instead of driving us apart; protects all our children instead of teaching them to hate; teaching them instead to love. Shalom. Kapayapaan," Hontiveros said. (Joseph Vidal/Senate PRIB)
