I got this from one of the FB notes of my friends and decided to repost it.
Please refer this as our way for expressing our sincere apologies of what you have seen/heard about the hostage-taking in our native soil, the Philippines. We know that you go here to enjoy our motherland but you were instead traumatized about what had happened. Please accept our apologies for we too are ashamed of what had happened. Also, please don’t generalize the Filipinos. One man may have ruined our reputation as a whole and put us to shame but it doesn’t mean that we’re just the same. Hopefully, we wish this doesn’t change our relationship.(HOPEFULLY)
