This Is What Terrorism Looks Like, But It’s Not The Worst Of It (Discretion Advised)

I’ve hesitated for some time to re-post this video of the Maute terrorist siege on Marawi City.

On one hand, I didn’t want to contribute to giving terrorists free publicity.  On the other hand, this video serves as a reality check for those who continue to criticize the declaration of Martial Law in Mindanao by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

I am sure that for majority of devout Filipino Catholics, this video will elicit outrage, and hopefully for those who are critical of ML in Mindanao, give them pause to rethink their stand.

But I’ve got news for you.

This is not the worst about terrorism.

Think about the human lives lost, homes razed, innocent citizens displaced and the climate of fear that has taken over their lives.

Religious statues and icons can be replaced. Churches can be rebuilt.  But a human life lost remains lost forever.
