In times of doubt and hesitation during the Peace Deal process San Pedro Claver becomes a model for the future peace landscape.

He was a Spanish Jesuit missionary priest who has stayed on people minds for his dedication to alleviate the suffering of the slaves of the slave port of Cartagena where he lived most of his life. He dubbed himself the "black slave".

Timid and simple, Catalan short on words and long on facts, Pedro Claver Corberó, is one of the most exciting figures and risky seventeenth century Christianity representative, whose life was developed in the colorful context of adventures, passions and injustice of the slave port Cartagena de Indias, dramatic center of moral and social conflicts. His selfless to the muzzles black delivery of theologians of that time arguing even if possessed soul, is an admirable model of Christian practice of love and exercise of human rights, which declared "defender "in 1985.

His church, where his remains rest within the main altar, is located in the city’s historic center, to the side of the convent where he spent the greater part of his life and which is now a museum.

Apparently, Cartagena could be the chosen site for the signing of the peace pact on September the 26th of 2016, and upon this situation the Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos highlighted San Pedro Claver pointing at the coincidence as a happy one.

San Pedro Claver is then becoming the image of the peace deal between Colombia and the FARC guerrillas.

Everything already mentioned as a reminder for Colombian citizens to choose what’s best for the country in the plebiscite on the 2nd of October.

But let’s be honest San Pedro Claver should be more than just the reminder of a peace deal that not necessarily means actually reaching the peace for the country.

Undoubtedly he is a great example and model for Colombian people but further than just voting, it is call to make peace in the streets, at every single Colombian home, with the family and friends.

Because finally 52 years of armed internal conflict might ease but violence is not going to disappear magically, peace is not a signing is a more complex concept that includes all the members of a society to be true.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
    add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
    I look forward to your new updates.
