Everyone Charged With A Penal Offense Has The Right To Be Presumed Innocent Until/Unless He Commits Suicide.
Iginagalang ko siya noong nabubuhay pa siya. Mataas ang tingin ko sa taong ito at saludo ako sa mga kontribusyong ginawa niya sa ating bayan. Hindi ko na iisa-isahin kung anu-ano ang mga iyon, tanungin mo na lang si Pareng Google at si Mareng Wikipedia. Masasagot nila yan, I’m so sure. Pero sobrang na-disappoint ako sa kung paano nagwakas ang lahat sa kanya. Nasira lahat-lahat ng pag-galang at respeto ko dahil sa pagpapakamatay niya.
Oo, naniniwala ako na “Everyone charged with a penal offense has the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty”. Totoo yan. Kahit sino naman siguro eh ayaw na ma-husgahan kaagad hanggang walang hatol ng (kataas-taasang) hukuman. And I presumed he was innocent until he committed suicide. Marami ang na-offend sa akin noong binatikos ko siya lalo na sa Facebook status ko:
“… May he rest in peace, although I’m thinking, that was his conscience hunting him and he can no longer contain he had to kill himself…”
And I meant what I said.
Para sa akin, killing yourself should never be part of your options nor be your last resort. Suicide is just a manifestation of guilt, or perhaps it’s running from something you thought there’s no way out. There could’ve been another alternative, there should be, but not suicide, for cryin out loud. I don’t pity people who commit suicide, I feel sorry for them and as much as I really want to tell them “may they rest in peace”, we know that suicide is a mortal sin and they will never really rest in peace for their soul will go directly to hell. There is no salvation for them.
Kaya kung anoman ang mga bagay na mabubuting nagawa mo dito noong nabubuhay ka pa, walang silbi yan kung papatayin mo ang sarili mo. Oo, maaring maalala ka ng mga tao bilang isang marangal na mamamayan. Oo, maaaring ipagdiwang nila ang iyong buhay dito sa lupa. Oo, maaaring manatili ang respeto sa iyo pero hinding-hindi mo matatakasan ang katotohanang tumakas ka. Tinakasan mo ang iyong laban at para sa akin, isa iyong malaking karuwagan.
Hindi sa atin ang buhay para kunin natin ito. Ayokong magpaka-santo o magpaka-ipokrito pero ito ay isa sa mga prinsipyong pinaniniwalaan ko and I’m afraid no one can ever influence me on changing my stand regarding suicide. It’s either we have the same ideology or you say something against my principle. That’s just how it works and I’m open for discussion.
Hindi ko lang talaga matanggap how people who claims to be sympathetic and empathetic and kind and saint and all the goodness in the world, can actually turn suicide into a heroic act making a man so much more honorable and respectable. Maybe he was. Yes, he was an honorable man when he was alive – until he killed himself for some shallow reasons (whatever they were) I can’t really seem to agree to. I don’t know what to say anymore – definitely I’m not gonna say “may he rest in peace”, maybe I just wish his family and friends and all his supporters to find peace in their hearts and I hope they continue to love each other and learn to cherish life while it last. Life is beautiful.
