I was contemplating whether I should write this post or not because I know it’s a sensitive topic. Nevertheless, as an individual who experienced losing a love one at a young age, I decided to go for it.
The hostage taking that happened in the Philippines and resulted to several casualties was a heartbreaking moment that affected a lot of people all over the world. Numerous arguments have been going around coupled with pointing fingers and covering ass. This “shifting the blame” game can never bring back the lives that were taken. In any case, justice MUST be served.
Losing a loveone in a very tragic manner is very traumatic and painful. I was on the same boat few years back so I perfectly understand what they are going through. My mother died in a vehicular accident when I was 13 which nearly cause my father’s life as well. To top it off, the driver run away and eventually surrendered to the authorities. It was agonizing back then but now I can say I’ve moved forward.
I would like to share what my nephew posted on his Facebook. This is the link to Andrew Philip’s view on the hostage taking in the Philippines.
Here you go.
I hope in the long run, time will heal all wounds. My deepest sympathy to the victims and their family.

Although the police force have their shortcomings, let us not neglect the fact that the policemen also risked their lives.
@moni yeah. it was just frustrating because the situation calls for an urgent and calculated action but it was not executed the way it should be.
lives can never be brought back. 😦
