Dearest Jill — An open letter to Jill Robredo and colleagues in media

You are only 13,  and I feel terrible how people seem to keep forgetting this fact when they speculate and report about the events surrounding the plane crash. When they show photographs of you and your sisters with your faces buried in your hands, when they upload photographs of you sobbing into the arms of your classmates and teachers who have come to bring you comfort. These visuals do not help at all and only show a lack of respect for your private pain.

Dear @lisamyeongjookeighery, I received these wonderful photographs in the mail today. Thank you very much. Such special, memorable time I spent with you, @igorvidor, and @lobatopa. I will not forget it. Perfect weekend to end my stay in Korea. I miss you all. #travel #photograph #templestay #korea "Mr. Darcy is tsundere," explains #gamerchef. He had to sit and watch Pride and Prejudice for the nth time with me yesterday, one of my favorite movies. Health was not good at the end and beginning of the year. First it was the flu, now its heavy cold and sore throat. Malunggay and mushroom soup should help, along with Jane Austen. Now I wish I have a copy of Sense and Sensibility and Little Women... #movie Since we got back we here "taho, taho!" every morning. Finally managed to get someone to come down for one. So yummy breakfast!!! (Taho is soy custard with tapioca pearls and syrup sold by roving street sellers.) #breakfast Tea time and other adventures. Back in the city. #tea #gamerchef Dinner is served. #christmas Rainbow. #christmas
