Hong Kong Protests Philippine Government

Today’s blog entry is a little different. As some of you might know, within the last couple of weeks, there was a terrible incident involving some Hong Kong Chinese in the Philippines. Unfortunately do to some political situations going on in the Philippines, a Filipino officer decided to take a bus hostage. His rational behind this was that he was trying to get the Filipino government to give him his job back as an officer. Well as time progressed, he eventually ended up killing eight Hong Kong Chinese people and then a sniper took him out. Some of the responses that were coming out of the Philippine government did not satisfy a great deal of local Hong Kongers. So the other day some locals in Hong Kong decided to form a protest, because of this incident that happened. They are demanding that the Filipino government look closely into this ordeal and some other demands. So I just decided to do this little entry in honor of those who died and for the families and friends. I am praying for you all and that God will comfort you. God bless you all!

If you would like to read more about the protest, check it out. I am providing the link below to the New York Times’ article that I read.
