Hostage Crisis

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

It took me a day to decide whether to comment on this sensitive topic..i don't wanna rush my thoughts and end up being too bias..

First of all only ourselves can decide whether we are good or bad. It is not others. All of us have reasons for doings things.

From a Filipino perspective. We Filipinos can sacrifice and restrain ourselves from confrontations as long as we can hold it back but once family becomes involve then that becomes a whole different situation..Filipinos have really strong family tights to the point that you go abroad and work to send money to your family back home leaving yourself with just enough money for food and rent.

and that's what triggered the infamous rolando mendoza seeing his family being dragged and arrest by the police.

I am not in favor of any side cause it is still not clear on how it ended up this way. You see judging a situation was never an easy thing a lot of underlying stories should be investigated. Most of all let's go back to where it all began. Why did it even cross his mind to hostage innocent people? Did he really do the crime he was accuse of? Why did'nt the court agreed on his appeal for a motion for reconsideration?

We cannot do anything anymore some already died and the world already saw how untrained philippine police are..So what are we going to do? For me it is to go back to the root of this which is the Law definitely this happened because of  the misuse of law and lack of some human rights related law. Training is very important too, you cannot just fire everyone who did mistakes. But we have to make sure that everyone up there is deserving and someone that can be a model for his subordinates.

Filipinos are not bad. One person's action cannot label a whole nation's values. It's sad how this one situation change how the world look at us. I hope that one day we can show you that we are not what you think we are..  

I sincerely give my condolence to the family of those who died from the hostage taking i will include them in my prayers so that they may rest in peace.

Lastly I am not ashamed that i am Filipino for what happened nor am i ashamed of rolando mendoza for what he did BUT what i am ashamed of is how many lives was wasted because of improper handling of situations.
