(from an interview conducted by InterAksyon.com's Jaime Sinapit)
It's as if crippling a person is not that painful.
I felt sad reading about her mother's sentiments on her death. Here is a mother who would have wanted her daughter to stay in school yet could not support her given their financial difficulties. How her heart might have bled for her daughter who aspired to do more, to accomplish more, to save for her schooling and to be able to help her family rise above their financial difficulties. How could anyone even hurt her youngest child, who she has high hopes and dreams for.
I am a mother and I am pained by what Jaja's mother is going through. I am angered by the inhumanity and senseless killing of one innocent soul.
I wonder whether her killers ever considered that Jaja's death will leave her mother and her family broken-hearted and in grief.
