a terror attack?

At approximately 1:30 PM today a loud and strong explosion occurred in Glorietta 2 in Makati City, ending my restful weekend plans. Initial report says that it was a gas explosion but later, it was more or less established that in all probability, it was a very strong bomb. Once again people from the opposition used this to sow intrigue in the minds of the public. One of the first ones who gave a statement was Antonio Trillanes, one of those soldiers who launched a mutiny in 2003 in Oakwood (which incidentally is adjacent to Glorietta) saying that this is a diversionary tactic of government. What? That's a sick mind! It is during times like this that we should act as one people and help each other deal with this tragedy. It is not the time to point fingers. The Philippines is an archipelago made up of many that whatever happens in Manila does not mean it is happening everywhere else in the country but this is different because the enemy could be right beside you.
