A Mindanaoan’s point of view on The Valley Golf Antipolo Controversy
There are 5 parts, so look for the succeeding part after viewing this one
Okay, Since this is a very sensitive issue, I have approved all the comments, but will be filtering them out soon. I will make it a policy that all those whose voice want to be heard in this post thru their comment should either have a blog or have a valid email, I will contact you thru your email accounts and if I haven’t received any reply from you in at least 2 days, your comment will be deleted. I have come to realize after reading Juned post last night that comments sometimes influence the readers more than the post. Thus, I have made this policy. FYI
Here’s Ms. Noemi Dado’s post on Multiply about Mayor Nasser Pangandaman Jr Mauled a father and son in Valley Golf Antipolo. I highly respect her as a blogger and as a person, and she blogs with balance and with authority so it’s better you read about it there than me narrating it again and by the way, here’s the first hand account of the daughter Bambee de la Paz in her blog.
As a Mindanaoan or a resident of Mindanao, what can I say about this as one of the plurk’s posts of an online friend has asked?
I sure do hope all will be well soon. I want that Justice will prevail so that healing can come in after. This is an evidence that blogging can be the citizens’ voice in any maltreatment and be able to report any irregularities in any system, either in government or not.
I also do hope that there will be more Mindanaoans who will be blogging soon, just to help also clean our Island’s name. When people who hails from Mindanao are involved in fights or controversies like this, chances are.. there will be some who will say or think of us here in Mindanao as being war freaks. We are brave, but most of us don’t like war. You’ve got to live here to see, know and feel what are most of the Muslims, Christians and Lumads’ hearts’ desires.
I pray for this situation to appease, I pray that whatever goodness or blessing in disguise this has in store for everybody, be realized and felt by the greater public very soon.. especially the GOVERNMENT. You, I mean all of you who are government officials are not anymore untouchables as you think you are, because Filipino Bloggers works like a dream team in helping and protecting each other’s right.
I do want to hear the others side of those who are involved, Pls. tell the truth because you are not only representing yourselves, you are representing the people of Masiu, Lanao del Sur and also of the entire Mindanao.
