Altho it's hard, let's forgive one another. Hatred/resentment is a rust on the soul, vexatious to the mind,onerous to the heart and toxic to our health. For our own mental,physical and spiritual health, let us get rid of this toxin. "To err is human,to forgive, divine." (Alexander Pope). "No man can make me stoop so low as to hate him."(Booker T. Washington")."Forget about the wrong things people do to you. You must not try to get even. Love your neighbor as yourself".(Leviticus 19:18).

I totally agree with the foot-noted words attorney but I believe that there must be justice first before forgiveness is given. In another sense, before I can forgive, the one who wronged me must first show a sincere remorse, know the consequences of his act, admits his fault and promises never to do again the offense. How can forgiveness be given to the Marcoses for example, when they do not admit their fault in dehumanizing us and in helping to transform this country into what it is now? As a lawyer, I am sure that you know the extent of damage they inflicted on us. Adding insult to an injury, most of us Ilocanos do not believe that they wronged us and we play amnesia just because of our clannishness.
