Yesterday, The Abu Sayyaf attacked 2 family-filled jeeps on-route to Talipao,  from Jolo, to go home and/or visit relatives,  leaving 23 dead.  9 of the identified victims were minors. The youngest was Risalyn Isahac,  age 7. Those who survived said there would have been more of them alive had help come sooner but the potential rescuers’ fear of abu sayyaf reprisal and the 1-hour journey, thru bad roads, to the nearest hospital 22 kms away, deprived them of vital care. (PDI, 073114,By Julie Alipala) 


*i computed the travel time. A potential emergency vehicle traveling at 100 km/hr could cover that 22km distance to thw hospital in 13.2 minutes.  

on a separate note, on the opposite page of this heinous crime is a full page ad for an “ultra-high-end community for the privileged few to rise in BGC”  boasting convenient accessibility to the major arterial roads of Metro Manila. … hmmmmm….

Real Life superheros - - Randy Halasan, 2014 Ramon magsaysay awardee,  travels for 7 hours to the matigsalug tribal village of Pegalongan, where he is Head teacher. Aside from proactively lobbying for the expansion of their school,  he has inspired fellow teachers and villagers to create a food sufficient community by planting fruit trees and vegetables.  Now, Pegalongan farmers have a collectively owned rice and corn mill, a seed bank,  a cattle dispersal project,  and horse for transporting their produce.
