Surviving tragedies

EVERYONE will have to face some crisis or tragedy at some point in his life.

If it’s not the loss of a loved one through death, it could be the loss of a job, a family home, the end of a relationship, the loss of one’s faith, etc.

Any of these situations can send someone on a tailspin of despair, as what probably happened to Senior Insp. Rolando Mendoza, who hijacked a busload of tourists on August 23. He felt aggrieved for being sacked from a profession that he loved, as well as desperate for the loss of his income and other benefits with which to support his family. That is not to say his subsequent behavior and how he dealt with his crisis is excusable. (Click Something Like Life for the rest.)
