Hi there everyone. Tsk. I'm arguing with myself how I should start this post. You might have noticed that I haven't posted anything recent until now. You might have also heard from television or radio or social media about the crisis in Zamboanga City. It is actually a really sad thing what's happening here. If you're wondering what I'm talking about, you can type in your search engines the following keywords "MNLF attacks Zamboanga City" so you must know by now that I'm from Asia's Latin City - Zamboanga.
Up until this moment, we are tuned in to our radio sets to know the latest updates about the gun fight that ensued in one Barangay. Not all of Zamboanga is under attack. 5 out of 98 Barangays are affected and more than a thousand of evacuees are flocking different evacuation centers for shelter, food and medicine.
Thank God that our Barangay is not affected however we can still feel the effects of the issue because most of the establishments -to include banks and stores - have closed down. We are praying now for the cease of the fire fights and that the issue with the rebels will be resolved. In connection to this, I would also like to solicit prayers from you dear readers for the safety and peace of each and every Zamboangueno and that this issue will come to a close peacefully and without bloodshed. Thank you in advance for your prayers. I will be posting more soon when the situation here normalizes. God bless your hearts :')
