Amid all the cri
es for ju stice and h eartfelt messages posted on different social media platforms, one of the final letters written by the late Philippine Military Academy Cadet Fourth Class Darwin Dormitorio suddenly surfaced online; a handwritten letter which, somehow, reflects the beautiful s0ul of the young man.
Posted by Facebook user @rocksea.strong (who calls him “Kuya Dar”), the letter was addressed to his family and was apparently penned sometime in August. Dormitorio — who was then c0nfined in a h0spital — assured his parents and siblings that he is fine and his friends inside the academy visit him every once in a while.
But if they could go to him, he only has a few simple requests: money to buy extra uniform, pizza, and doughnuts.
“Baka hanggang August 26, 2019 o later pa ako makalabas kaya puwede n’yo pa ako ma-visit. Miss ko na kayong lahat. Kung makakabisita si Kuya o Ate, padalhan n’yo ako pera at pizza at doughnut. Hehe! ‘Yon lang, Ma at Pa. Sana makaabot ‘tong mensahe sa inyo,” he said in a letter written in their local dialect but was translated by a Twitter user.
[I might be here until August 26, 2019, or later. You can still visit me. I miss all of you. If Kuya or Ate could visit me here, please send some money, pizza, and doughnut. Hehe! That’s all, mom and dad. I hope you get this message.]
The 20-year-old PMA caded ended his letter by telling them, “I love you all.”
