The driver of the truck involved in a road mishap that claimed the lives of three persons on board a Ford Mustang at the Circumferential Road in Barangay Vista Alegre, Bacolod City, early Tuesday, was released that night after the 18-hour reglementary period had lapsed.
The COVID-19 roulette of luck has given Bacolod City MECQ status until September 30 and if everything goes well, changing what was a “G” to an “E” will be enough to slow down the surge of coronavirus cases in our communities. However, if the status quo prevails and there is no difference in the way the people responsible approach the issue, then, at least, we will have seen that our government has done something. When they put our city under MECQ, even if we do not know what that actually means in the long run, that should count as something.
This may sound like a fantastic and overwhelming exercise, but I believe it is something necessary for us to do if we want to have the proper priorities in life, and thus to be properly guided. Especially these days when we are bombarded with so many fascinating things that can confuse us and lead us astray, we should consider this exercise as indispensable.
Yes, we are meant to live a spiritual and supernatural life. This, of course, will have its definitive state in heaven where we will share the eternal life of God, our Creator and Father, who has made us his image likeness and adopted us to be his children.
A news report yesterday from Digicast Negros quoted Bacolod Councilor Renecito Novero that some of those who tested positive during the recent mass testing are now missing in action.
