If you know the guy, you know I had not much to do w/ the decision to make peace. He hardly looks like someone anyone can convince into doing anything against his initial will. Mayor Duterte was interested in making peace and I just happened to open up the option. He could’ve dismissed me, but he didn’t. Of course Ramon was graceful (despite being shocked) about it, too. Imagine, I called him with no warning, all of a sudden, Mayor Duterte on the line! But they swung it peaceward.
