A Moment of Silence

**photo from source

If you watch the news today, whether you are living in the Philippines or on some parts of the world.  You probably heard about the Hostage Taking at the Quirino Grandstand.  You can read the full story by googling the incident.  My heart is heavy and I can't seem to put into words what has happened.

I want to take this minute to pray for the souls of those hostages who passed away from the awful incident.  May you rest in peace and may the Lord be with you.  To those who survived, I pray for peace of mind as I know it causes a lot of trauma.  God Bless our country, God Bless our safety.

In silence,

  3. I agree The Authorities should have a maximum tolerance regardless that they should patiently wait and Negotiate with the hostage taker, and the bad point was at the moment of hostage taking they grab mendoza's brother knowing that it would anger mendoza enough for him to be provoked to do something worst. It's embarassing that it would be lemming unto the international news too. Prayers will help a lot. ^__^

  5. i hope no one puts the blame on the police alone. these men who also have families have put their lives in the line. if only they had better equipments and better trainings, the situation could have been controlled. its the government's duty to place just funds for the police when situations like this happens. sadly, that is not the case here. Please guys. Never put the blame on them. They also have their own lives to protect. If you were them, would you do the same thing? Im guessing yes. They were poorly trained and its not their fault. they had old weapons and they cant be blamed for that also. Lets stop pointing fingers and think of the bright side. Because the situation can never be brought back nor are the lives lost. Lets be thankful that majority of the hostages have survived. and make this an example of why we should improve our government

  6. I'm a Hong Konger. Thank you for your prayers. Yesterday was a very sad day to us. Had the Philippine police been a bit more professional in the rescue, all the hostages may have been saved.
