Unseen Enemy: Weapon for mass “distraction” (Prt.I)

I’ve been told that a fighter’s most dangerous weapon is not a weapon that kills but a distraction.

Many fear the presence of an enemy. Greater fear when an enemy is unseen. Worst fear comes when came face to face with it. We look at the enemy and see its weapon. Fear got worst.

So, what we all do is dodge weapons, staying away from it as much as we can. Shielding ourselves. In some desperate situations, we want to get the upper hand of a trap – contain an enemy and prepare … We get on our armors and create weapons of our own. We ready our shields. We wear protective gear to make an enemy’s weapons, bullets, or arrows yield zero impact on us.

We stay away from killer blades, quick flying arrows, stray bullets, and we take careful steps not to blow bombs that can suddenly kill us. Like unseen enemies, we get very cautious, staying away, dodging, shielding ourselves from what can kill us.

We fear now the weapons and lose sight where the real enemy is. Distraction.

And this is how I feel towards this Pandemic right now. I wear shield, dodge, and stay away from people who may potentially carry a virus, like a weapon that can kill. I never really felt like it was an enemy.

Distraction.

In my country, and probably the world, considers the Pandemic as “public enemy number one,” as also echoed by our country’s government.

But I feel different since the time this had all started. We got ourselves protecting and shielding. It has a hundred percent proven tactic to lessen the spread of the virus. To protect also others form acquiring it.

Yes, staying away – physical distancing –  was everybody’s mechanism. It did somehow curve the impact of the virus. But it does not mean that we are killing or defeating an enemy. It just felt more like we are successfully dodging a weapon away; escaping from any unseen attacks that linger around threatening to hit us anytime

We treat the virus as an unseen enemy now… Or don’t they seem like weapons thrown out from faraway just randomly hitting any unfortunate victim?

Isn’t what we need are health care systems, reliable vaccines- pro-human, and not just another distraction of sort-  to treat and alleviate healing and recovery? The problem here would be the cost of buying the cure could be too expensive.

Aren’t those the strategies which needed focus to monitor manufacturing?

Instead, another unseen enemy seems to be successful in paralyzing us. Limiting our access to daily needs, necessities, foods, and jobs … regular jobs.

It has brought a threat to our health by tightening security and reinforcing violence for those who will go against newly passed policies and laws.

Instead of really paving a way for a free flow of access to health services… to improved and evenly distributed health services. Creating ways and knowledge-based outcomes equating everyone’s’ capacity to understand and mobilize themselves in quarantine situations, aren’t these where we should pour our attention and focus at?

It has also seemed that an unseen enemy, paralyzed our capacity to think.

It has been taking away our natural flow of everyday living. We bend the natural law how to live normally. Crippling our normal state of going through day to day. We wear mask. We altered communication behaviors and “being together” now took its form virtually with creepy privacy issues adopting everything on the internet. Going out requires as a pass… I felt we are all prisoners in a free country.

We all got crippled in some areas.

Now, where or what is a real enemy?

Paralyzing an opponent – reducing its chances to respond to an attack is a sign of a successful distraction taking its effects. In battle, those who got killed die not because of a killer weapon; they loose because they got distracted.

The fighter loses sight of the real enemy, clearing its weapon… flattening their attacks and opportunity.. falling for distraction. When an opponent had already got crippled, its capacity decrease. An enemy can now be ready for its next attack. It saved him time. He’s ready for the next blow.

Distraction.

I see your stripes

#WearYourStripesProject

We all have stripes. So, what stripes are you wearing?

#WearyourStripesProject

I see your stripes

(#wearyourstripes project   @grassrootsadvocte website)

I may not know you. I may not know how hard it is for you now… I really don’t. I do not have a word that can make all these feel good right now. I’m sorry you re going through these.

These #stripes you are dealing with now is taking its toll on you. I see your stripes – your flaws, pain, your wounds… You’re not alone.

This pandemic may not be the only one causing the panic in you. You may have unfinished business before all these started. You may just be beginning to pay debts, looking for a job, reconciled with a friend, or a family member… You may have started gaining back your life just before this crisis…

This is not only your panic. You are trying to be hopeful for the future, trying to teach yourself positivity, peace… trying to be okay. Getting it all together during an abrupt disorder is difficult.

Balancing the panic and positivity is tough.

No one deserves to feel helpless. It may be your concern. Convincing yourself to be hopeful when you’re already not, is an extended war for you. I hope someone could hear you. I know you just want to be left silent. I am sorry you have to feel all this now.

I wouldn’t try to force you to be vulnerable now. Don’t even have to open up. Your pain right now is enough.

I won’t tell you to be vulnerable. To open up, as if you have not drained all the strength left in you trying to get through pains and panic in these times…you don’t have to.

You are helpless; that is enough.

These hurt. And it is painful going through all this.

But I see the stripes you are wearing at least for now you know you are not alone.

#Metoo… Hey! Just stay…. I’ll stay. We’ll be here until we do not know when. But we will be here. We will someday see how the fogs have been lifted off and, the path will be clearer.

I see your stripes though I may not know you. I accept those stripes- those flaws, wounds, pains, scars…

You may the mom trying to provide food for the whole house and you don’t know where to get it next. You may be a recovering patient, former addict, a depressed who’s experiencing anxiety. Or you may be sick..of other things, or you’re the veteran recovering from a war-stricken state and facing a brand new battle within you.

You may be from somewhere else; no one really knows where, what pain you’ve been through, what darkness you’ve seen. Fought a fight, only you are allowed to fight.

You may be the front-liners facing this crisis. You may be another weak leader or a follower taking small steps to face your own fears and failures and trying again. Learning from the worse. Committing to change is tough.

But I see your stripes, I have them too. I am tired and hope everything would just stop… We all have stripes… We are here for you…

We all have stripes… So, what stripes are you wearing?

Wear your stripes

So, what stripes are you wearing?

Are you ashamed of your stripes?No one is all glossy and smooth, perfectly looking individual.


Our stripes could be scars, physical wounds, emotional traumas, mental scrapes and other flaws. We so want to cover so that no one would see.


In a society that produces ways to help humans, no one wants imperfections. We are surrounded by ads promoting how to “create” your identity. We are to believe that this is the natural way to care and accept ourselves. Books and guides, podcasts, YouTube vids and various social media feeds that would show us acceptance and loving yourself.

There are those which are genuine to their message. But mostly, we are influenced with programmed belief and manipulated images. All authenticity is lost in the process. The real message behind is if you want to be accepted then change who you are; cover your natural being. Change how you project identity. “Copy me”.

But I rather be flawed than fake… I have stripes … I covered them. But the more I try putting band aid on it the more these stripes get ugly… Sometimes trying to patch them help, a healing scars hurt. But patches don’t really stay for long.. wounds need to breathe and free new skin to come.

Stripes are part of me.


We all have stripes… It’s hard to show for some… but once we learn to wear our stripes and uncover them we learn to accept, also other peoples’ stripes. There’s nothing like living flawed, fabulous, and free…


There is someone too who already wear & paid for our stripes. CHRIST. Isaiah 53:5.


HE took pain and lashes on his skin that His scars freed all flawed and imperfect sinners. HIS stripes healed our stripes.


So, what stripes are you wearing? 🌈🧡💙💜 #mentalhealthadvocate

Window Hours

Window Hours. Baguio city. March 20, 2020. Photo by BienPhotography

Window Hours.

As the the ECQ (Enhanced Community Quarantine) increases, LGUs provide strict curfew hours to keep everyone safe from COVID19; this can paralyze the people. To ease this problem, the local authorities provided Window Hours where people can go out to conduct necessary routines and access essentials, like foods, medicines — being bought in the markets.

In Baguio city – La Trinidad province, people are cooperating with the LGUs . People struggle during times of health risks and crisis.

Providing the Window Hours , LGUs help their community to lessen fear and panic and be able to mobilize themselves and adapt to the situation. Obedience of citizens goes well with considerate leaders who understand the needs of their people. #supportLGUs

final salvo;forever salute

a real hero is always unsung.

In the midst of this pandemic, 11 Philippine soldiers died. Armed forces military groups encountered on 16-18 of April members of the Abu Sayaff, a known anti-government group in the south of the Philippines.

They die of defending the country against an ideology fought by groups defending a long lived tradition on a political belief.They used to pursue and cross lines in terms of peace.

No one wants to stay silent anymore.
