The country's gift this Christmas

Today's the start of Philippine's traditional Misa de Gallo.

You can now surely smell the cold breeze of the air as the holiday seasons come near.

But looking back, are we really having a merry Christmas despite the latest happenings in the country?

The latest on is the Ampatuan-Maguindanao Massacre where more than 50 people were murdered heinously.

Is this the country's gift for Christmas?

Nobody thought that would happen. Who would right? Only maybe those people who did it.

But on the brighter side, I still believe we're having a merry Christmas.

This would really be up to us now.

What we need to do now is to pray as one for the justice of the victims.

It wouldn't happen that fast, but we still need to believe that it will come, in time.

The country's gift might be gruel and tragic.

But giving it back with prayers and faith is one gift no one can ever take from us.

Merry Christmas everybody.
