Ang taong may masamang balak at maruming gawain ay walang mga sinasanto, mapa-bata man o may edad ang biktima. Sila, na kahit pa lubos mo ng kilala, malapit na kaibigan, kahit pa kamag-anak, o maging kahit na sino pa, huwag pakampante sa lahat ng pagkakataon dahil minsan ang buong pagtitiwala lang ay hindi ligtas.
Isang nakakapanlumong panawagan ngayon ang ibinahagi ng isang Ina tungkol sa mabigat na sinapit ng kanyang anak na babae sa kamay ng taong pinagkakatiwalaan at hindi niya kailanman inaasahang gagawa ng masama.
Ibinahagi ni Hazel Caballero, ina ng 6-na taong gulang na babaeng anak at kasalukuyang nag-aaral bilang grade-1, ang bangungot na pinagdadaanan nila bilang mga magulang sa sinapit ng bata.
Aniya, dahil sa dalawa sila ng kanyang asawa na nagtatrabaho sa sa buong araw, ipinagkatiwala niya na ang paghatid sundo ng kanyang anak sa pagpasok nito sa klase sa isang kakilalang driver, naging kampante sila sa kaligtasan ng anak.
Lingid sa kanilang kaalaman bilang mga magulang, na sa araw-araw na maagang pagsundo ng driver sa kanilang anak papasok ng paaralan, ay araw-araw din itong dumadating klase na late, matamlay at palaging umiiyak.
Laging pagtataka umano ng teacher ng bata sa posibleng dahilan ng pagkalate at pag-iiyak nito sa tuwing pumapasok, ngunit sa mga pagkakataong tinatanong niya ito, wala rin lamang itong imik at sagot. Kaya naglakas loob umano itong amuhin at kausapin ulit ang bata sa maaaring pinagdadaanan nito at dito na niya nalaman ang lahat.
“The driver has been r***** your daughter every morning for some time now.” paglalahad ng guro
“Every day after picking her and before coming here, he would take Angel to his house, r*** her and threaten to k*ll her if she ever tried to tell anyone. Then he’d bring her to school.” dagdag niya.
Ito na marahil ang pinakamasakit na marining at mabalitaan ng isang magulang tungkol sa sinapit ng kanilang anak. Gumuho ang mundo nila sa mapait at matagal ng pauli-ulit na pinagdadaanan ng kanilang anak.
Napatunayan rin sa kasong isinampa nila laban sa driver ng bata ang pagkakasala nito sa batas kaya sa kulungan ang bagsak nito.
Sa pangyayari, isa lamang ang payo ng ina para sa lahat ng mga magulang na huwag magtiwala sa kahit kanino.
Ugaliin rin ang pagbigay ng sapat na panahon para sa mga anak, katulad ng personal na paghatid sundo sa school, bantayan at alamin ang mga ginagawa nito, kamustahin ang araw-araw nilang pagpasok sa klase nang sa ganon kampante silang ibahagi ang lahat ng kanilang nararanasan maganda man o may kahina-hinala.
Marami ang mga nabahala at nag-aalala na mga magulang para sa kapakanan ng kanila ring mga anak, na tulad nito hindi imposible na mangyari na kahit kanino, kaya ang kailangan ay ang mag-ingat at bantayan sila.
Narito ang buong detalye ng pangyayari at panawagan sa lahat ng mga magulang:
A CALL TO ALL PARENTS!!!
My daughter is six years old and is in grade one. We live about a kilometer away from school so everyday a driver whom we are familiar with takes her to school and returns her home in the afternoon because both my husband and I are working and we leave home early, just after she goes to school.
One day when I was at work I received a call from her class teacher requesting me to avail myself there as soon as was possible.
“What happened to Angel?” I questioned anxiously.
“Nothing to panic about, just make sure you come before we break up for the day.”
Of course I panicked.
This had to do with my daughter and I was worried sick about her. I immediately excused myself from work and hurriedly took the first transport available. I burst into the classroom panting and sweating.
“Mama Angel,” The teacher started. “We will talk about this privately.” She led the way to an empty office and I followed meekly.
“Do you see your child off when she comes to school?” Was her first question. I didn’t know where this was leading to, so I just replied with a short “Yes.”
“What time does she leave home?”
“She gets picked up a bit early because I have to rush to work. So around 7:00 to 7:15 a.m.
“How does she behave then?”
“She behaves normally.”
“I want you to brace yourself with what I’m about to tell you.
Are you ready?”
Did I really have a choice? I just nodded.
“Angel arrives here around 8:30 every day,” she started calmly. “For some time, she has been coming to school in tears every morning .
Several times I asked her what the matter was but she didn’t give me a reply. Today when she arrived she was crying as usual so I took her aside, gave her some sweets and promised her some more tomorrow.
Then I asked her in a very friendly tone why she cries every day and the answer shocked me.”
“Mama Angel,” she continued with caution. “The driver has been r***** your daughter every morning for some time now.”
“What!” I almost fainted . For God’s sake, Angel was only six! How heartless can some men be?
“Every day after picking her and before coming here, he would take Angel to his house, r*** her and threaten to k*ll her if she ever tried to tell anyone. Then he’d bring her to school.”
I felt dizzy. Why? Why my little Angel? I was sweating. My whole body was shaking.
“Should I call your husband?”
“No!” I shouted. He might do anything.
Patience was something alien to him. I had to find a way of breaking the news to him. After a while, I decided to call his sister. Together we could try to talk to him.
The news shattered my husband. He cried uncontrollably. Then he got so furi0us that he swore he would [email protected] him, but we told him not to take matters into his own hands and just leave the law to do its work. We reported the matter to the police. We gave them the details of the driver . They caught and took him in. We took Angel to the hospital.
He was found guilty of r***** our little girl a multiple number of times and was sentenced to a twenty year jail term.
👉Absolutely no one should be trusted with our girls. Take time to drop your kids to school, be friendly with them, teach them to be polite but never to trust strangers, ask them about their day and always make them trust you enough to open up in case of any unusual incident.
*Trust no one*
