The comeback of the Terror

Brutal... Oh so Brutal... The victim cuts the stillness, with agonized cries wounding the night. Just another shot of terrorism existence.




It was an awakening the moment I saw the truth. It has again gained lamentable catalogue of human crime. A living proof of a never ending battle against terrorism.

I was working the PM shift (3:00 to 11:00) as OPD (Out- Patient Department) student nurse with Elein at Kidapawan Doctors Hospital Emergency Room when two loud boom shattered the quiet atmosphere. Then we found out it was explosion of two bombs launched consecutively at the Recreation Center and Imperial Plaza in Quezon Boulevard. It is approximately 1000 meters (For all Kidapawenos; correct me, if I'm wrong) away from the hospital.

At around 7:35, the ER started to get flooded with injured innocent civilians. Weeping... Crying... Asking for help... My heart pounded. I was shocked for a while. It was my first time to handle a situation like that. Aside from the ER resident physician, nurses on duty, my co- student nurses and our clinical instructor, a group of physicians and paramedics showed up offering their help. As student nurses, we started working with them immediately doing whatever we could. It's very comforting to see the way the staff came together and did what had to be done. It also gives me a sense of satisfaction that I have done something even the littlest amount of care I gave (offered).

The reactions and words shared by the victims and witnesses raised my spirit and broken my heart at the same time. Is there any place in the world worth to be called safe? Every place has been put onto suspicion. Everyone gets feared that anytime a bomb would explode. We lived in constant fear lest the storm that every moment threatens should break upon us with dreadful violence.

It make matters worse for the aggrieved parties. The unfortunate event have seeded its wrath and to most people, it would take away lives of scores. So who's to blame? Is it the security forces that were accused of being lax in their duties? Is it the local government for not foreseeing any possible incident?

While the people responsible for the tragedy are still loose (According to Philippines police chief Avelino Razon, the attack was the trademark of the al-Qaida-linked Jemaah Islamiyah rebel group, which also is also linked with local Muslim terrorist group, the Abu Sayyaf.) and while we are still in the eye of the storm, how to achieve safety and security? I guess, NONE. All we can do now is to pray. For its only our trust in Him that would make us safe and be secured. How can we attain peace? It is something to think about.

The currently held news about bombing here in Kidapawan killed an 8-year old girl and her cousin, 12 y.o. and injured to 22 others. Life is sacred; therefore we must respect its sanctity.

P.S.: The incident was something solid to slap on our faces. Be an eye- opener. God bless...
