SMILE AND JUT OUT THAT HIP! WORK IT, GIRL! YOU'RE ON IDIOT CAMERA!
Nine people lost their lives.
A woman's 2 daughters and husband were killed, and the only family member she has left--her son--is currently fighting for his life. The bus is the scene of a massive carnage--proof of how low humanity can descend. The victims' blood have barely dried, and now vultures have descended to take pictures in front of where lives were lost, as though they were posing in front of Disneyland?
The smiling girl (second one on the right) really makes my blood boil. Have we, as a society, completely become desensitized to horrors and evil? Have we really come to the point wherein we can happily pose in front of where some woman lost her entire family and not feel like there's something wrong with it? Is the pain felt by others that much different than our own, had we been in the same situation? How can we not show even a shred of respect to those who've lost their lives or lost loved ones? How the hell can so-called educated young women and cops be so brainless as to think that using a vehicle of death as a prop would be a good idea?
I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Be indignant or hopeless about the indifference of others.
Suffering should never be a spectacle. Grief should be afforded dignity, and mourning be given peace. After a raging thunderstorm, a safe haven must be extended. In our darkest hour, we must hold our heads high and keep walking towards the light--any light--no matter how weary we are.
And yet we've somehow morphed into a society that thrives on spectacles and noise. We've become too far disconnected that we no longer feel the pain of others.
Dignidad lang po.
Bigyan nyo naman ng dignidad ang isang lugar kung saan ang buong mundo ng isang babae ay nawala sa isang saglip.
