May eternal light shine upon them.

This is for the victims of the massacre in Magindanao just recently.  As for now 46 bodies were recovered.  They’re expecting to find more.  Earlier it was only 22.  It’s sickening to think that things like this can happen in the Philippines – a democratic country.  I can’t begin to describe my sheer sadness and horror after I heard of it.  In one night, many people were hoping against hope they will get out of their predicament alive while the rest of us are sleeping peacefully.  If it’s for political reasons, isn’t it too much?  These innocent victims served as sacrificial lambs for the selfishness of others.  I can’t imagine the terror they had gone through before bullets rained on them.  It’s brutal, it’s barbaric, and it’s heartless and inhumane.  Who can stomach pulling the trigger on a group of helpless people as they stand horrified and pleading for their lives?  It’s heart-wrenching to think about it.  My condolences to the family of the victims.  May their loved ones rest in peace.

 

Additional Update: (Nov. 25) 52 bodies were recovered as of today. They’re expecting more.

    I am praying for peace in the Philippines. It’s events like this that hinder tourism, not to mention people’s lives. God bless.
