One of my classmates last semester in our broadcast journalism class had been murdered just this week. I just found out today and I was really shocked.
Ate Ja was a really simple girl. She's really beautiful and very down-to-earth. We haven't have the chance to talk that much but I would always remember her warm greetings and smiles towards me.
I found out that there were more than five stab wounds found in her body. And that the one who did this to her is still out there. Life is really unfair most of the time.
WHERE IS THE JUSTICE?
Ate Ja is a graduating student this year. She still has more things to do with her life; find a job, have a family, fulfill her dreams; but all of that was taken from her in just a snap. She doesn't deserve what happened to her. No one deserves that.
I know how it feels like to lost a loved one because of a murder. It hurts. And the pain never really goes away. The only consolation one could get from a tragedy like this is the thought that that person is in a better place now with God.
Someday, I can imagine Ate Ja in a much better haven; somewhere where she is free to be happy and free from the cruelty of this world.
The only thing we can all do now is to pray for her, her family, and her friends. There is no better way to help but to whisper in God's ear that may she be given the rightful justice she deserves.
Goodbye ate Ja. You will be missed. that I am certain of.
