Dispatch from Crame No. 58

4 / 5 / 17

I feel sad. I don't really know the man. But I can only empathize with Sec. Sueno for the fate that suddenly befell him.

I instantly felt a sense of oneness with him when in asserting his innocence. Sec. Sueno claims that the Presidnet was fed with "wrong information." Sounds eerily familiar, folks!

According to someone close to me who works at the DILG, the general sentiment among the rank-and-filers there is that Sueno is a sincere and honest public servant. To them, those Sueno underlings are the villans.

I do believe that there are men and women, both within and outside government, projecting closeness to the President, cleverly exploit his weakness and prejudices to their advantage.

Impelled by some insidious agenda, some of them, shady and underword characters as they are purveyors of distorted facts and lies. I call some of them "agents of vengance."

Indeed, intrigues within the bureaucracy have been a bane to our society's growth. Almost always, good men and women are the casualties.

Dispatch from Crame No. 57

Ginoong Pangulo, tantanan po ninyo ang mga bata!

Huwag ninyo silang idamay sa inyong kapritso. Pati ba naman inosente nilang kaisipan, lalasunin ninyo ng adiksyon ninyo sa karahasan at panlalait sa kapwa?

Malinaw sa mensahe ni Ginoong Duterte sa mga Boy Scouts na gusto niyang magpatuloy ang kultura ng mga pagpatay sa bansa, at tuluyan nang mawala ang pagrespeto sa buhay at karapatang pantao.

Ang dapat ituro sa mga bata ay ang pagmamahal sa kapwa at ang pananaig lagi ng katwiran, katotohanan at katarungan.



Dispatch from Crame No. 56

4 / 4 / 17 7:20 p.m.

I love this quote from MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR:

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

Incidentally, today, April 4, is Martin Luther King's death anniversary. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968.

I wish to honor his memory through my unceasing quest for truth and justice.
