Patnubay Leaks: Hard to say “I’m sorry” si Vice Consul?

Hard to say “I’m sorry” si Vice Consul?

Text messages from OFW Rey M. – “Halos sa araw-araw sa loob ng dalawang linggong pagpafollow-up sa embahada, nawawalan ako ng pag-asa. Sabi ni Vice Consul Genotiva na pauwiin ko na raw ang anak ko dahil that case will take 1- 2 years daw bago malaman ang kaso. Nakaharap ko pa ang kaibigan kong si mr. Ahmed noon. Mabait at normal ang asawa ko pero sabi nya ‘murder ang kaso ng asawa mo’ kaya sumikip ang dibdib ko. Natawag ko naman sya bago kami dalhin sa police pero sabi nya sumama na lang kayo. Pati anak ko kasa-kasama ko.”

My association, the Filipino Women’s Council is happy to share with you the results of our most recent study in Italy.

This is a long-standing and growing concern. –  Charito Basa

Ang PATNUBAY ayon kay Ka Romy Carbonell

PATNUBAY
by: Romeo S. Carbonell

Ang buhay ng tao’y sadyang may unos at di maiiwasan ang gusot at takot.
Na ang akala mo ay wala ng patutunguhan sa mga landasin at takbo ng ating buhay
Kapag ikaw ay nag-iisa isip mo ay napapagal na, at hinahanap mo yaring pag asa.
Darating ang panahon na bigla ka lang sasaya na may gumabay sa iyo’y pumatnubay

wag kang susuko sa lahat ng panahon pagkat ang buhay ay puno ng kulay
Isipin mong di ka nagiisa sa laban ng ating buhay, pagkat ang patnubay lagi mong karamay
May pag-asa may patnubay may gabay sa paghusay ng ating buhay…
Wag sayangin ang lakas ng bisig kung sa ibay walang higpit sa patnubay tayo’y kumapit.
