Two years ago, during a small family reunion, you told me something I have never quite forgotten.
"... not for the weak o faint-hearted ang trabaho ko."
While I felt pompous dishing out details of my adventures in Southern Mindanao, you were understandably silent about the specifics of your work. All I knew was that, you belong to an elite unit in the PNP Special Action Force.
But now I truly understand what you meant back then. Indeed, your job is something that not so many people would take on. It entails stepping into the peripheries, and into the wild.
