I came across the book of Bianca Sparacino, " The Strength in Our Scars" and I remember the many individuals from all walks of life I came across with, who despite painful experiences, continued to hope and love, chose to do what they can to help others. I remember Neri, Judy, Felix, Minx, and many others. I hope we may see each other together soon.

Next, the convents-the nuns are very active in hiding people wanted by the government. And finally, the morgues, to look for salvaging victims left by the waysides for the flies to feast on, dead hollow eyes unseeing the violence that was visited upon them.

She gave me the look. The look that seems to say,

An uncle was assassinated as he received the holy communion in Church. In retaliation, a cousin burned down a whole village. The cries of widows and children left homeless can still be heard in the winds as you pass by Bantay.
