Why do I deserve for such profanities?
A certain Mike Avenue left insulting words yesterday in my comment box in my previous article entitled Ninoy.
The comments made were derogatory words (F**K and other cursing words) aimed in humiliating me as the author of Palipasan. I admit that I was hurt, but my family was hurt more than me, and my wife and daughter send me a message "Bakit sya nagagalit at nagmumura sa iyo Daddy?"
I asked God this morning on the same question "Why me?"
But God has more questions than me, He asked me if can I forgive him? He asked me if I can I let it go? And God reminded me that He was mocked and ridiculed in public places, and finally He asked me if i can withstand the pain and agony of it. And I silently nodded.
And before I can asked the Lord for my second question, to my surprised the comments made by Mr. Mike were all gone this morning and supposedly deleted by him only as it says "This post has been removed by the author" and his profile and newly created blog entitled Baranggay Nakalimutan is longer accessible in Web. I tried to search for cookies and other remains that might lead me back to him but only an image of his profile was left on my computer that reminds me of his presence.
Whatever happened in the comments made, remains a mystery, probably it was God's way of saying "I told you, I'll take care of everything, just have faith in Me".
Palipasan is focused on inspirational articles about faith, hope and success; I admit I have been vocal and supportive to the causes and advocacies of the OFWs wherein several articles were posted in this regard BUT in a civil manner within the boundaries of truth, social justice and responsible blogging.
I will not be cowed, I will not run and I will not blink. If my writings caused direct harm or insult to any person/s and on their blog site/s, I expect that I be reprimanded and reproached in a civil manner for I am open to a healthy conversation and if i find myself guilty of such error, I would bow myself upon you/them and apologize for such mistakes.
Let us observe the democratic air we breathe and the freedom of expressions we enjoy free from profanities. While uncontrolled anger and hatred overcomes the senses of a just man, for now I will tolerate such expletive words in my comment boxes. I will leave it part of my Palipasan so that it may serve as a constant reminder to everyone that the freedom of expression was once observed beyond sanity. And let the readers be the true judges on what they have feel and observed in the name of responsible blogging.
Palipasan will continue to exist and I, as the author; will continue expressing my personal thoughts and rants, writing inspirational articles of faith, hope and success and will continue supporting advocacies for the glory of my "kababayans" and the Global Filipinos in this hybrid platform of blogging within the context of responsible writing.
I only pray that may God's healing power of forgiveness touch each one of us and may the rage, resentment and antagonism that we withhold in our hearts be cleansed with peace and love, and may our lives be worthy in the eyes of God through blog.
Thank you so much to Mr. Thoughtskoto & Family and to KABLOGS members for their support and comforting words to Palipasan in such unwanted eventuality.
Maraming salamat sa paniniwala sa katotohanan at kapayapaan.
