The Ever Elusive Truth

I hope it is not true that political motives are behind the inquiry. Because those left behind by the victims of summary killings and unexplained disappearances in the city just want to move on with their lives.

Injecting politics into the ongoing investigation definitely muddles up the issue. It is unfair to point fingers at people without clear evidence of their participation in the wrongdoing.

It is also unfair to ascribe sinister motives to people who are just doing their jobs. What matters most now is to find out the truth which, in the eyes of the families of the victims (the desaparecidos), is "what really happened to those who disappeared."

For someone like me who has waited for 4 long years, finding the skeletal remains or whatever remnant of my missing husband will forever close that dark chapter of my life and allow me to take a step forward.

The bones that have been found may not even be of James but they definitely belonged to someone whose own family had suffered like us. I am sure they would welcome the answers that have long eluded them.

This new development has opened up old, deep wounds. I wish I can turn a blind eye and remain detached. After all, I have long moved on... or so I thought. They have shattered my illusion.

Blessings to all,

I am praying for what you're seeking for. But we need to know God is working in mysterious ways. We may never find it right now or when we want it to be, but I know His grace and strength are more than enough for you. Hugz....

BINGKEE, i never stopped trusting that God will someday lead me to the truth. thank you. =)

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
