Prayers for the gallant soldiers of our Republic who lost their lives in service of the country and the Filipino people, rest in peace. Deepest sympathies and condolences to their families and loved ones, for it is them who always bear the greater pain and the burden of moving on with their lives whenever there are tragic moments such as this. Let us honor their sacrifices as well. It is my hope that the Government does right with what has happened. Peace is a laudable objective and must be the ultimate goal, but don't let the search for peace derail the need for justice.
