2nd Day of Zamboanga Seige

2nd Day of invasion we all thought, it is over,
The Moro National Liberation Front
MNLF just want to have a peace rally in City Hall.
My sister Mariam ordered my brother not to leave
Our home to guard from the thieves.

In that morning I contacted my sister Sylvia,
She already take all our sibling in a safer place
Together with the help of our eldest sister.
We are all relax and have peace in our mind. But,
After couple of minutes, we received a text saying
That the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF)
Are rumored to burn all the houses they captured.
Some building in Sta. Barbara where believed MNLF's
Are hiding has started to burn around 2:00 in the afternoon,
Philippine time.

That rumors make us upset, worry, and anger.
Why? What is our government doing? Why is she not commanding?
Even the Police, Military, and the MNLF is waiting; what is next???
The residents of Zamboanga is waiting for the immediate action.
I called my sister Sylvia right away to order my brother
Boy to get out of our house together with my other
Sibling as soon as possible and tell him
To contact Estrell (my sister-in-law) as well.
I was so paranoid that I hear my heart and
My mind saying "let your family out!"
I could not eat, I was restless.

But my weapon is only my prayer, my faith to Allah (SWT).
Ya Allah! Protect my families, friends,
Relatives, and to all Filipino's from any harm.
Keep them all safe in one roof, and our houses from the fire.
Touch the heart of the person behind this scene.
Ya Allah! You have the power above them all.
You alone can control the situation. Ameen.

Ya Allah! You are the most powerful from above all.
You know what is hidden into our heart.
And you know what is the intention of the MNLF
Whoever behind the scenes touch their heart
To stop this invasion toward my fellow zambuagueneos

Friends and my relatives.

And keep them all safe. Ameen.

Miracles happen

Alhamdullilah! Allah is really great, 
He help my sibling flew from our home in a safer place
And we are grateful for the people who Allah guided to help them.

That was late afternoon, Philippines time.

Next day.

Ist Day of Invasion in Zamboanga City

The government employees waiting for the order of our mayor, 
There is no order what they need to do.   

I want to document what was happening during the invasion in my hometown Zamboanga City. It was September 9, 2013, 5 A. M. Early morning Philippine times.

That was September 8, 2013 here in America, I'm busy preparing food for my father's birthday that we are going to celebrate together with my sister Mariam. At that moment we receive the bad news,
My niece Jennela saw a post on twitter and facebook that there's a war going on in our hometown. She then called our relatives in the Philippines for confirmation and to know they're well-being.

Accordingly, our hometown is being attacked by the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF).
I called my sister (Mariam) right away to inform her what had happened. We both tried to contact them (our relatives in Zamboanga) right away and ask what happened.

The story goes like this:
My brother Boy is preparing (that early morning) to drop her eldest daughter, Cherry Anne in the hospital site. Then he met Nonoy, afraid and screaming saying "evacuate to TRES ALAS (a Corporation in our area in Martha Drive, Sta. Catalina) and send the children and women because
We are being invaded by Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF)." They all panic at that moment.
George's children and Nonoy's manage to go to TRES ALAS. Later in the afternoon, Boy bring his children and wife to the Corporation but unfortunately, that place is already full so, he need to run again to dropped them in Hon. Guingona's house.

We keep contacting them through their cellphone. We are restless, stress, and panicky as well.
During that night I feel sorry for them. That is the first night they are separated from each other,
I hear children crying, we could not sleep during that night, Keep thinking for their situation till morning. That will be morning in the Philippines.

Please continue to 2nd Day of Invasion.

My Faith

I am a Muslim woman
Feel free to ask me why
When I walk,
I walk with dignity
When I speak
I do not lie

I am a Muslim woman
Not all of me you'll see
But what you should appreciate
Is that the choice I make is free

You often stare as I walk by
You don't understand my veil
But peace and power I have found
As I am equal to any male!

I am a Muslim woman
So please don't pity me
For God has guided me to truth
And now I'm finally free!
