I heard from my office mate ten or eleven days ago that the famous journalist Ces Drilon was taken captive by the Abbu Sayyaf. The phrase means bearer of swords in Arabic. In the Philippines though, this group bears big guns. They say though that they have a purpose or something they believe in is of Divine will. Would you believe that the recently released Ms. Ces Drilon also believes in their advocacy in spite of the hardships that she encountered at their hands?
Well, I am not here to judge anyone. But, one thing sure, I will not be anywhere in Sulu or in Mindanao areas in the next years or even decades to come. I will not let any member of my family too. Better be scared and safe.
