Found: Freedom from an injustice

One Friday afternoon, I received a message that my son and a classmate had been apprehended by members of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA). The classmate had been found in possession of a prohibited drug, and my son had been arrested with him even though he was innocent of any wrongdoing.

I was so shocked I could hardly breathe. The Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act in our country is taken very seriously, and unfortunately, enforcement is not always just. I wondered how my son would live after what happened.
