I read with a heavy heart today’s youngblood article by Tamara Dominado (”What’s there to fear?”, PDI, 12/11/08) whose mother Maria Luisa Posa-Dominado, a Bayan Muna leader, was abducted in April 2007.
I feel for her, and all other children who have had the ultimate misfortune of having to live such a significant amount of time motherless, but hers is a pain so extreme I couldn’t even begin to wrap my head around it.
And I quote:
Whoever did this to my mom and “tito” [uncle] and countless others should be ashamed of themselves. They don’t need a 15-year-old to tell them that what they did was wrong. Will they tell me that what they did was for the good of the nation? I cannot see any good in abducting innocent people who are helping others.
Couldn’t have said it better.
