Yes, I will be honest with you, I was having second thoughts, yeah even third thoughts if there is such a thing. My family doesn’t want me to go, but I told my brother that this is a chance of a lifetime and the organizer assured us that it is very safe on the other side of the fence. So, against my family’s order, I went and learned a thing or two lessons in life and conquer my baseless fear.
I was so excited to see for myself what I watched from the movies. This castle like facade is the main entrance to the Muntinlupa Bureau of Corrections.
There are two towers on both sides of the entrance. They say that the worst criminals wind up behind bars in Bureau of Corrections. This is where they house the maximum security compound. But there are also medium, low, and minimum-security prisons.
A flag pole with our Philippine flag waving mightily on top of the pole. And below is insignia of the Kawanihan ng Koreksiyon.
compound there’s hundreds if not thousands of inmates. When we were interviewing the contestants for the Iron Chef finals, we learned that not all of them are hardened criminals. Some
are just victims of circumstances.
In this crazy world we live in, it
can be said that the more dangerous jungle is not inside the
penitentiary but outside in the very community that we live in. Where we
kill other people by the very words we utter against them. We judge as
if there’s no tomorrow. We said unkind words without the benefit of the
doubt. Sometimes we are guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
Imagine a piggy/ jug bank for only Php 150.00. This work of art is so gorgeous!
At the exit you will see this sign hanging on the iron bars. Read and reflect on them…
Have a free and happy day!
