The Road to Success is not straight: There is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, caution lights called family, and you will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance, insurance called faith, and a driver called God, you will make it to a place called success!

MAGUINDANAO MASSACRE



The Philippines again, has made another world record but not for heroic acts nor Athletic supremacy but in an act so unforgivable, so gruesome, and so barbaric. The massacre that happened in Maguindanao province threatens the ever weakening democracy in this country.

A supposedly peaceful filing of Certificate of Candidacy by the rival family of the Ampatuans, the Mangudadatus ended up in a brutal killing by 100 armed men. 47 people were mercilessly taken their lives away; including local people, lawyers, and members of the media. Political rivalry is strongly believed as the cause of this ruthless act. The pointing hands are now then at the family of Ampatuans, whose power will be challenged by the Mangudadatus at the Gubernatorial race. The Ampatuans are also said to be allies with President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

The NUJP or The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines decalared a National day of Indignation as a response to the said ordeal. Obviously, everyone in the world condemns such act.



It is said that Philippines is now next to Iraq as the most dangerous place for journalists and has the record for the most number of Journalists killed in just a single day.

As I join the people in condemning this act on Facebook, I saw this girl who commented that his uncle was one of the people who got killed. I did not ask for more information but I extended my deepest condolences instead.



It is now up to Malacañang to act on this case. It is now up to the President, who declared a state of emergency to this province to weigh her decisions and set aside her partiality. Whether an ally or not, the rule of law and justice must prevail.
