AWESOME LETTER OF THE MONTH
DON’T MAKE IT VIRAL
I would like to keep my anonymity as what I am about to ask you is something very sensitive and personal to me. I am an avid fan of your magazine, and I am also happy to see how Filipino citizens have become proactive in reporting traffic violators. However, sometimes, there is more than meets the eye with what we see, and we become too quick to judge. And more often than not, this leads to serious implications for the person being cyberbullied.
This afternoon, I caused traffic on the road because of a personal problem. I argued with a friend who had betrayed me. I found out that he had been backbiting me. While I meant to confront him about it, I didn’t mean for things to get ugly. I lost control and ended up spray-painting my friend’s car in public.
I’m not sure if anyone captured the scene on video, but if somebody did and submitted it to you, I humbly beg that you prevent it from going viral. I am most concerned about my pregnant wife. Please allow me to resolve this problem privately.
I wish your magazine more power.
