Jolo drenched with blood!

September 5

I recall the day I entered as a paralegal at the Human Rights Victims Claims Board – a man together with his brothers filed a claim for which I am to interview him , he narrated, …ma’am,I vividly remember my father had to literally climb the anchor of the boat to hurl us, his children, into the ship, we need to escape the island of Jolo, the water was red up to the the ankles of our feet because of the dead men who were notoriously killed during the indiscriminate shelling of our land by the military. We have no recourse but to leave our hometown and find refuge elsewhere…
