YMPN Statement on the Maguindanao Massacre
The YOUNG MORO PROFESSIONALS NETWORK strongly condemns the barbaric killing of more than 40 innocent men and women in Ampatuan, Maguindanao on November 23, 2009. Such acts are truly UN-ISLAMIC.
We grieve with the families of all victims and join them in calling for JUSTICE. We urge those in power to allow JUSTICE and PEACE to prevail.
In these difficult times, we pray for our FAITH to grow ever stronger. May we find the STRENGTH not to give in to hatred. May we find the COURAGE to continue doing what is GOODdespite the evils around us. May POSITIVE CHANGE become a reality in Mindanao and elsewhere.
May we allow the ALMIGHTY to rule our land and our hearts.
