The stand-off in Zamboanga City is on it's 4th day already. Although my older brothers' families are far from the affected areas, I still worry for their safety, including all our relatives and friends. I called my brother yesterday and told me that they are okay, and they are currently sharing their home, including my small house there with friends that have evacuated their homes.
I hope that these rebels will realize that they are stirring-up the peaceful lives of Christian and Muslim communities in the city. The Muslims and Christians are living in harmony in Zamboanga City why disturb it. Zamboanga City was never part of ARMM and these rebels don't belong in the city.
Help us pray that this situation will end as soon as possible. Let there be peace in ZAMBOANGA CITY.
