Justice for Given Grace Cebanico: UPLB Student and DOST Scholar

A very tragic and brutal thing to happen to a young and promising lady. Her name says it all, she was a Given Grace to her family. I do not know her, but what happened to her opens back the old wounds at UPLB, the brutal killing of Aileen Sarmenta by that crazy mayor, this time its another loss for the community and the issues of campus safety is put back into the spotlight.

BOO! to ABSCBN news for posting that graphic mobile phone pic of the victim still tied down. It took awhile for the news team to take the photo down (so much for sensitivity). And where did that pic come from? from SOCO? Should news people even be near and walking around the crime scene? anubeh!

As of today, her facebook page is still accessible and a touching tribute is posted online by her orgmate which makes it seemed all too surreal, reading her lasts posts, seeing all her photos at the UPLB campus. One can clearly seeing how much she loved life and the people around her. Hope her family finds justice and very soon.
