Oo, mas madaling magbulag-bulagan at magbingi-bingihan sa mga nababalitaan nating karahasan sa Maguindanao. Mas mabuting mag aral na lang ng Finance or magplano ng susunod na inuman o mag-shopping. Natatakot rin akong malaman ang mga detalye dahil ayaw natin ang pait at hirap na kasama ng katotohanan.
Ngunit may puntong hindi mo na kayang salagin ang nakabibinging mga balita sa karahasan at kahayupang nangyayari sa atin.
Personally, nanghina ako ng nabasa ko ito:
"My wife’s private parts were slashed four times, after which they fired a bullet into it. They speared both of her eyes, shot both her breasts, cut off her feet, fired into her mouth. I could not begin to describe the manner by which they treated her.” — Buluan Vice Mayor Esmael Mangudadatu
Not even the most vile creation of God deserves what happened to this woman. My heart bleeds for her family. I cannot imagine what i can do to the animal who did this to her. What more if this happens to my own mother. What would you do if this happens to your own mother?
How can a person sharing the dignity of a loving God commit something like this? Have they not experienced compassion, care, affection and love? I can't imagine any motivation (even money and power) that will fuel these acts. I guess i'm not that old to understand the evil that poisoned humanity.
There's just so many questions and i guess words truly limit what I want to express.
I actually feel powerless and immobilized because i can't do anything but write.
I opened my ears and my eyes and then what? Is it better to remain blind and deaf? I'm just sitting here hitting the keys to write words, staring at the monitor hoping that the world is better and more peaceful.
We need to wake up and face reality, but then what? I just felt like my hands are tied and my feet are bound. I just felt more powerless.
