Congratulations to the Inquirer for its news feature on the four judges who “gave hope in the fight against impunity” (1/6/19).
Seeing their pictures prominently displayed, I realized that there are real people who are determined to provide justice for the victims of cruelty and oppression.
The story made me remember the God of scriptures who “rescued his chosen people from their suffering.”
May I take this opportunity, please, to suggest that you also feature the stories of those who work hard behind the headlines for the sake of the hapless victims of cruelty and injustice, like the whistleblowers, the brave witnesses, the prosecutors, and the lawyers who work hard to prepare airtight cases against plunderers and murderers.
Surely their stories will inspire many Filipinos like me not to lose hope but to go on.
Featuring their stories will be a kind of affirmative journalism in these days of cruelty and impunity.
