Statement of Senator Alan Peter Cayetano on the recent Davao City bombing on Friday (Sept. 2)

'It is time that we stand together as a Nation'

Stand together in mourning and offering our love and condolences to the victims, to their loved ones, and to Davao, which became a target because of our leaders' quest to rid ourselves of the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG).

Stand behind our nation's and our President's fight against drugs and criminality, which includes the viciousness of the ASG.

Stand firm and strong as a people behind our law enforcers and emergency first responders.

Stand strong as a people in the quest to restore law and order and to get rid of drugs and organized criminal syndicates within six months.

And most of all, despite our diversity as a people, stand together in humbling ourselves before God, in praying for the healing and protection of our land.

"15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven." - James 5:15

We may come from different regions, backgrounds, and faiths, but as one people and one nation, we pray in faith for the healing for our country.
