Hello, guys! I bet you are all surprised I was not able to update this blog. Yeah, my storytelling of that Surigao trip isn’t done yet but allow me to take care of that later.
As most of you know, a siege in Marawi has caused people to flee from their homes. There are a lot of displaced persons and because I belong to the government agency, it is a prime responsibility for us to bring stories from the ground.
Currently, I am based here in Iligan City to assist in operating “The Mindanao Hour” Information and Command Center. Let us all pray this crisis situation in Marawi City will be over soon. It is so sad, seriously, to see children and old ones suffer from this. Back home, I know they had a good life and somehow could survive amidst difficulties. Because – home. If you’re at home, you know you will be all fine. Maybe soon, they will go back to their homes which we do not know if still existing, but I know these days are trying times to them. It is so hard I cannot even put to words how tough the situation is. It is so heartbreaking to see people suffer because others neglect to see the consequences of their wrongdoing. Let us all extend our help, and most importantly, include them in our prayers.
Godbless you all! I’ll be back soon with pages of stories. Keep safe, OK?
