25.NOVEMBER.2009. I drove alone from Davao City to the site of the massacre in the Municipality of Ampatuan, Maguindanao Province. Here is my photo essay, expressing some of my personal reflections as a faith-based peace-builder.

22.NOVEMBER.2010. I’m still waiting for justice to be delivered. Like the Prophet Habakkuk (1:2-4), I join the people in their cry for justice. The loved-ones of those who were massacred are crying. The whole nation is crying. The land is crying.

How long, O LORD, must I call for help,
but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!”
but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrong?
Destruction and violence are before me;
there is strife, and conflict abounds.

Therefore the law is paralyzed,
and justice never prevails.
The wicked hem in the righteous,
so that justice is perverted.

Here’s MindaNews’ regular updates regarding the Ampatuan Massacre.
