THE WORD: “ OUR LIFE IS A BORROWED ONE, THE REASON WHY WE FACE THE INEVITABLE-- DEATH. IF THIS IS OUR LIFE—MEANING WE’RE IN CONTROL OF IT-- WE CAN LIVE AS LONG AS WE WANT. BUT, THIS ISN’T SO, AS WE’RE ALL ACCOUNTABLE TO OUR CREATOR IN THE AFTERLIFE.”
MANY here have sympathized so much with our lady Mayor Beng Climaco-Salazar -- not just because of the two huge crisis that struck ZC beginning the month of Sept., but also due to the intensity 7.2 killer earthquake that hit Bohol-- her own hubby’s home-place.
THAT powerful temblor caused large devastation in that renowned place for the famous Chocolate Hills where the equally famous “Tasier” can be found aplenty, as well.
THESE two rarities are of big help in Bohol’s tourism industry, but have been gravely afflicted when that quake rocked the Visayas region with Bohol as its epicenter.
Its strong magnitude went on to destroy Cebu’s scores of major landmarks too.
AS if not contented with the bloody standoff and the deluge that followed, pockets of misfortunes have been persistently occurring in mi ciudad de Zamboanga.
THE spate of conflagrations in the aftermath of the twin crisis, have wreaked havoc too in mi ciudad de Zamboanga-- the latest was the P1million worth of properties that reduced to ashes inside the old public market place early dawn of this week.
THE yet unresolved evacuation woes have crept & stalked this long a host of our hapless & poor evacuees who were forced to flee their homes at the peak of the Sept. bloody siege in mi ciudad de Zamboanga.
Worse, affected as well, those villages virtually swallowed up by the terrifying flashfloods that swiftly churned towards the city’s low-lying densely populated communities.
WHAT an agonizing year 2013 for us all Zamboangueños under the mantle of our embattled lady mayor.
HENCEFORTH, let’s stop finger-pointing each other for such maladies. Instead, let’s unite the more as one people, as one Zamboanga folks vigorously rekindling and strengthening its resilient image in times of all these inevitable crisis infesting us in these trying times.
“WHY abolish those checkpoints as hinted strongly by our own city legislators?”
THIS query is aimed at them-- our city councilors who sponsored a rather sly measure during last week’s regular session.
“THEY should even fight it out for the strengthening of those checkpoints found with security lapses,” they pointed out.
MEANING, if such voices vibrate amongst our peace-loving residents here, our council shouldn’t disappoint, at all, their own constituents staunchly urging our AFP/PNP law enforcers to even tighten to the hilt all their security forces to forestall any repeat of such a bloody crisis we all
have gone through to these days.
BEFORE I might pass out, let me, for sure, acknowledge the duo who painstakingly worked so hard to get those 51 repented souls pooled all together for their landmark appointment with the Father through their (spiritual) baptism unto the Kingdom nation set up, right now, here on Earth.
THEY are our Coordinator (Brod) Jerry Vale and our roving Minister Jojo Badar. Aside the two, I wish to acknowledge also, Ozamis Minister Arnold Avela and their Coordinator Alen Avela.
OUR all thanks, praises and honor to the Almighty Father!
