The first question we may ask is, Why do massacres occur?
I believe the reason is because people choose to indulge their selfish and brutal urges to dominate the defenseless. They have chosen to live in rebellion against God or they might have no God at all.How about the Cotabato massacres? Innocent lives are being sacrificed because of so greedy desire to stay in power.
Why does God allow injustice? Why might God permit someone to hack another human to death?
Is it man's free will?
What may be the reason is, I am sure that sooner or later justice will be properly served. The oppressor will be punished accordingly based solely on the offense committed... but how long? or when?. May the people who has the power to give justice to the victims will not vehemently withhold it. They should disclose the truth no matter what. They have their duty to the people, to the court and to the society. My prayer is, may time will come that the offenders will be punished and be jailed up to their last penny.
