i've been planning to write my first blog in 2006.

i wanted it to be a blast... something positive or funny... but not this.

i don't even know what to say.

i guess you have an idea of what i'm trying to say here.

Sad. Pathetic. Stupid. That’s how I describe the accident in ultra today—the wowowee accident.

I just came in the office where I’m having my OJT when Ate Bheng asked me if I’ve heard the news. News? What news? I was in school from 7 till 10:30 that morning. That was when I realized that everyone in the room was gloomy. As I listened to the news, I can’t help but feel agitated because of the stupidity of what had happened.

I’m not blaming anyone here, ok. I should make that clear. But then, if you look at the proceedings, it’s just plain sad. The people who got killed, mostly women, were just ordinary people trying to better their lives... their luck in the wowowee show. I don’t believe that they went all the way from Pangasinan to Manila just to see some not-so-popular stars in person. No. What drove them to go out of their way and fall-in-line for three consecutive days in the heat of the sun in the cold of the night was to survive the life that the Philippine government is bombarding on us. And they were the ones who were hit the hardest. Makes your problem seem petty huh.

Just like the irate customer who came this afternoon because she received a call out by 171 reminding her of her unpaid telephone bill. She got all worked out—shouted even, because she knew she paid already and the system backed up her statements. Sure it was irritating. But hell-o! People do commit mistakes. Can’t she let it pass? If she can just stop thinking about herself for a minute and look at the television screen, I’m sure she’d be too ashamed of her reaction and leave the office head bowed.

I mean, just look, people are dying just to bring a little food on their plate… not even table… just their plate and here she is, shouting, too angry to calm down because of some stupid call out! Come on! Look at the boy, mere 4 years old, crying, all alone beside her mother’s still body—dead.

I guess, luck and their survival instinct didn’t warn them of their impending ghastly fate. I wonder how the boy feels…

it's just sad...

...and stupid,
