THE WORD: “THE GREATEST MIRACLE TO HAPPEN TO MANKIND IS NOT PHYSICAL HEALING, BUT A SPIRITUAL HEALING WHEN THE FATHER MAKES US HIS TRUE CHILDREN— SONS & DAUGHTERS, TO BE PRECISE, IN DOING THE WILL OF THE FATHER.”
THIS is the worst ever!
VIRTUALLY, all have same views about the massive flashfloods currently ravaging our city of Zamboanga, newly extricated from the 3-week bloody standoff last month of Sept.
“Accordingly, 25 years ago, the city was battered by heavy rains also, and that inundation swept the city’s low-lying areas. But, what I remember pretty well was the l957 incessant torrential rains that seriously flooded most parts of our city then,” claimed a top senior City Hall official who wouldn’t want his name be publicized nor at all promoted for any future political aggrandizement. (Saludo yo cuneste persona! Hinde’ igual cunel losdemas, so gloating for their political self- interests).
“This is the worst,” he repeated emphatically.
ALAS, there you are, the city is known prone to huge calamities like this.
BUT, this one we have right now, according to some doomsters, could lead close to the Noah’ days when rains never stopped for 40 nights and 40 days.
KNOCK on wood!..however, truth is we’re now on our 5th day, and there’s yet no sign of rains bidding adios for now.
PAGASA announced the heavy rains will persist for 3 or 4 more days.
DIST. 2 Congresswoman Lilia M. Nuño has well prepared her privilege speech of 6 pages in the halls of Congress this coming Monday(Oct. 14) to let loose the true sentiments of her constituents, not only in her district but overall the citizenry of mi ciudad de Zamboanga— meaning, including the district 1 in the west, the turf of her counterpart (Dist. 1) Congressman Celso L. Lobregat.
SHE showed me her gist in her speech, more on how we, Zamboangueños, felt so much pain and sorrow over the recent bloody crisis that lasted for three solid weeks, beginning at dawn of Sept. 9.
IN her speech, she cited the disgruntled MNLF-MISUARI armed faction— roughly 200 as comprising their fighters, clearly armed to the teeth in their desperate bid to occupy and lay siege the city’s principal sections where its City Hall was their primary target to hoist their own flag- supposedly a big deal for their cause— to show to the whole world that Zamboanga City is indeed theirs, by pragmatically taking its seat of governance.
CONG. Nuño, in her planned speech, condemned the atrocities brought about in here by the attackers. She urged the national leaders to expedite its peace process with the Moro rebels here in Mindanao so as genuine peace, so elusive since then, will ultimately reign in the entire region of Southern Philippines.
Cong. Nuño appealed, as well, on our national government to mobilize its ample help to a host of displaced families, so traumatized and devastated by the two big successive crisis- scourging their lives in a runoff sequence.
THE neophyte lady solon is dead-serious in bringing the matter to her all colleagues’ attention in the Lower House— to include a thorough probe why such a bloody crisis in the city just happened albeit the supposed strong presence of the AFP and the PNP, through its Western Mindanao Command(WESMINCOM) based at its Navarro Camp, Brgy. Upper Calarian and its Police Regional Office(PRO)-9 based at Camp Batalla on RT Lim Blvd, and at Camp Abendan in Brgy. Mercedes.
“We need to find out what really went wrong,” the congresswoman from Brgy. Taluksangay said.
Zamboangueños, in whole, are keenly awaiting for Congresswoman Nuño’s looming privilege speech in Congress by Monday.
Hope, her speech will be covered live by the media thereto —including the country’s known giant TV stations ABS/CBN, GMA & even TV-5.
LET’s see how they respond to her speech.
to her speech.
