As many of you know, the blast that occurred in Makati yesterday killed nine innocent people and injured dozens of others. Many are now shocked, scared, and angered. But I am certain that this too shall pass. The resiliency of the Filipino people will shine through as always.
It is my fervent hope that this tragedy be treated with dignity and respect. This is no time for politics. It is a tragedy and should be left at just that.
I hope that we can all draw lessons from such a tragedy--to cherish life and live it as if each day were your last.
May the the innocent souls of the victims rest in peace and those who are injured to heal.
