Good Morning Mindanao / by John Javellana

Good Morning Mindanao
I must admit that I was quite adamant with the thought of going to the region for the first time because of all the unnerving events that have happened here throughout it’s history. But behind all that petrifying veil of presentiments that one could naturally associate with the word “Mindanao” lies a beautifully tranquil refuge filled with gentle smiles of people that is complimented by the calming tropical feel that can only be infused by life beside the ever-humbling sea. I’m happy to be here and I hope it stays that way.
