AND LIFE GOES ON!


E
ven criminals should follow certain work ethics or else they will be thrown out of work and put behind bars. This is what happened to two smugglers and six illegal foreign workers, a local daily reported. The two smuggled the illegal workers out of a southern border town to the city. At the end of the journey, the illegal refused to pay a huge amount of money demanded by the smugglers. The smugglers took them to a building outside the city and locked them up saying they would not be freed until they paid the money. However, the smugglers permitted a hostage to call his friend to bring the money. But what he requested his friend in his native language was to inform police about them with a description of the location. And the police were very happy to arrest all the parties involved. The smuggling of illegal workers involved several thousands as fines and jail terms and the deportation of illegal immigrants.

In the area where I live, there are so many overstaying foreigners struggling to earn a living. Poverty, pain, and emotional stress make them even more stronger to survive each passing day. Life goes on and life is really what you make it!

Life takes on a different meaning when you live it the way our Lord would want you to lead it.
