The families of those who were victims of a landmine attack in Davao del Sur said they need more than an apology from the New People’s Army. The victims were Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction (PDRRMC) volunteers and Red Cross workers, and wounded soldiers who could have died, doubly suffering from this violent attack. The victims and their families demand justice and retribution from the group.
Yes, anybody can say sorry even if it is not sincere. It is a very easy way and act to say “SORRY”. Coming from NPA attackers, it would not have any meaning at all for the damage has been done, and harm was already inflicted.
Are NPAs unaware they targeted ambulances? Whichever, they intended to kill the occupants who were unaware their good deed will be met by an explosion meant to harm them. To think that they were health and volunteer workers who have dedicated their lives for service to others.
It will only be justice which can cure the pain and suffering of victims, their families.
