Building Peace Through Education – Madame Laureana San Pedro Rosales, Founder of Capitol University

Mindawayan Journal - article by Pres. Ikeda

 


Madame Laureana San Pedro Rosales, founder of Capitol

University, is a woman with one thing and one thing only: a

dream that she dedicated her life to realizing.


Dr. Fe Rosales-Juarez, executive vice president and member

of the Board of Trustees of Capitol University, describes her mother

as an ordinary person, with strong and weak points like anyone

else – but above all, a woman who did not know the meaning of

the word defeat. She was, after all, a survivor of the Bataan

Death March.

A bastion of humanistic education in the Philippines, Capitol

Univeristy – presently led by University President and director

Casimiro B. Juarez, Jr. – is the brilliant culmination of the dream

that sustained and inspired Madame Rosales through every

hardship and setback she faced in life.


Though the Japanese may have forgotten the past, the people of

the Philippines have not. They have not forgotten the Bataan

Death March, a horrific consequence of Japan’s nationalistic educational system.

Yes, one of my uncles escaped the Bataan Death march, and fought the remainder of the war as an insurgent until the U.S. returned to the Philippines.
