I am in Tagaytay City Philippine right now and I was surprised to see tourists all over the place. Come to think of it… many of them are East and South East Asian speaking in Chinese language. I was just surprised because they look unbothered and unaffected from the negative news and publicity Philippines is getting from countries as China, Australia, etc.
No offense to the affected. Of course, we Filipinos are saddened and sympathize with the concerned. It’s just that life must go on, though both parties are searching for justice and credible investigation is in progress.
I know how hard it is to forgive at this point. But hope this could lead to cooperation on how to better facilitate incidents as the painful hostage crisis that happened; and granting of tools or gadgets for better counter crimes and counter terrorism.
