A Mother’s Appeal

December 5, 2011

Mga Kababayan,

God’s blessings to you! This is a mother’s appeal for your compassion to help her win her son’s life and his freedom.

My name is Letty Lanuza, the mother of  Rodelio “Dondon” Lanuza, who is in prison in Saudi Arabia under a sentence of death by beheading (Lord, spare him!) since 2000.

Please believe me when I say that the death of a Saudi caused by my son was accidental.
Since 2000, my tears have flowed and my heart has been broken but my prayers to God are unceasing.

God has answered my prayers when in February 2011, through the effort of the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh and other Members of the Reconciliation Committee, the aggrieved family agreed to forgive Dondon.

However, as is the custom in Saudi Arabia, in exchange for Dondon’s life and freedom, they demanded  ”blood money.” As of this writing, our family had raised P570,000.

A group of big-hearted members of the Filipino business community in the Philippines led by Filipino American leader, Loida Nicolas Lewis, have offered to match your kind donation dollar for dollar.

We do not have the luxury of time. In less than three months (February 2012), it would be one year since they forgave and required the blood money equivalent. If by then we are not able to come up with an amount that will satisfy them, it may mean the withdrawal of their forgiveness and hasten the death of Dondon. (Lord, spare him!)

May I ask you to please open your hearts and help me to save the life of my son, an OFW who is unjustly imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. Your donation of $100 will be matched with another $100 by the group of Filipino Philanthropists led by Mrs. Lewis. We will be forever grateful for any amount that you can donate, which will likewise be matched dollar for dollar by them.

Donations may be sent through any of Metrobank’s overseas branches and international offices free of charge. For those who wish to send their donations through any of Metrobank’s remittance correspondents worldwide, the bank has agreed to waive all Metrobank related charges.

Please click here to begin sending your donations now. You can also help us by spreading the word about my son, and lifting up prayers for his immediate release.

Thank you so much, and may God reward your kindness!

Would you change your tsunami walk into planking?

Natuwa ang marami sa pagkakapanalo ni Miss Shamcey Supsup sa recently concluded Miss Universe.  According to beauty pageant experts it was her natural beauty, her tsunami catwalk and her very Christian and intelligent response sa question and answer portion ang nagpaangat sa kanya sa mahigit 80 kalahok sa nasabing patimpalak.

“Would you change your religious beliefs to marry the person that you love? Why or why not?”

Shamcey replied, “If I had to change my religious beliefs, I would not marry the person that I love because the first person I love is God, who created me. I have my faith and my principles, and this is what makes me who I am. And if that person loves me, he should love my God, too.”

According to unrevealed inside the pageant tsismis, kaya daw nanalo ang Miss. Angola ay dahil sipsip daw ito at walang panama ang Supsup. At kaya daw si Shamcey lang ang walang interpreter ay dahil daw no available interpreter was able to translate Supsup in English.

Ang pagkapanalo ni Shamcey took the Filipinos like Ondoy. Marami ang nakarelate that even politicians ay nakuhang magkumento sa nasabing celebrated na pagkapanalo.

Isang mokong na beauty pageant consultantang nagmagaling, “Shamcey should have bagged the Miss Universe title if she only combined planking with her tsunami walk.”

Napaisip even Lolong the more than 20 foot long crocodile, who has not been taking his meal for weeks now.  Dahil dito ay nilagyan ng CCTV camera ang kanyang kinalalagyan to observe the captive croc.

According to experts ay may language barrier daw between humans and Lolong. Kaya naman pinatawag po natin ang interpreter ni Miss Angola upang malinawan ang nais ipahayag ni Lolong.

According to the mokong interpreter, Lolong was very excited about Shamcey’s catwalk and naispired siyang sumali sa mga beaty pageant. It was clear that Lolong is willing to change his beliefs for the love of freedom.  The judges would definitely be surprised with his tsunami walk, and will change the pageant’s catwalk into crocwalk. He will be making our country proud dahil siguradong makukuha niya ang korona ng the biggest croc in the universe.

And lastly, Lolong told the Mokong interpreter that if he will not be given the opportunity to represent our country in the Guinness book of world record, he will be protesting by Planking. Expert nga naman siya sa planking, all his life nakaplanking siya.

He has been in hunger strike for weeks now and hindi lang nahalata pero naka-planking talaga siya.

Because of this, a mokong source revealed that Congressman Winni Castello of  District 2 of Quezon City was planning to change his proposed anti- planking law.  He plans to include crocodiles too in his bill.

Isang protesta ‘di umano ang pinaplano laban sa anti-planking bill, a mass-planking action day, date and venue to follow.

But the bill according to mokongs will not make it to the finals. Hindi papayag ang mga mambabatas that crocs will be included in the bill.

Napag-alaman din that a known business tycoon will not support Castello’s anti-planking act.  Balak pa naman niya mag-planking to protest laban sa hindi pagpayag sa kanyang contractualization scheme sa kanyang businesses.   Planking while flying.

Meanwhile sa isang presscon sa Malakanyang, isang pang-beuaty pageant na tanong ang ipinukol ng isang mokong na reporter kay PNoy, “Paano na lang po kung magsabay-sabay ang transport strike sa katapusan? Tigil pasada ng Jeepney drivers dahil sa oil price hike, bus operators’ strike dahil sa toll fee, at PAL employees strike dahil sa Contractualization, would you change your beliefs to marry the pinoys that you love kuno?”

PNoy answered, “kaya nga ang love ko for the pinoys ay parang coca cola, nung campaign period regular, nung manalo na ako naging light, ngayon ZERO na.”

Laging tatandaan…ang maniwala at mapikon ay Mokong lang po.
