I don’t know about you but this video bugs me a lot. I visited the Kiangan War Memorial ten years ago and I really appreciate what the government did in putting up this shrine which commemorates the bravery of our foreparents during World War II. So I’m a little shocked and quite irritated that this guy and his companions are using the shrine for their rappelling activities.
Dude, it’s a shrine. A shrine is almost like a church or any place of worship. It is almost like a burial ground hallowed by the dead who lie there.
What is it about us Pinoys that we have no sense of respect for places like this? Can you imagine a Japanese doing something like this? Or a Korean?
Anyways, doing physical activities like rappelling should be encouraged but can’t we find a more appropriate place to do it? I hope its not the Department of Tourism which is encouraging people to go rappelling at the Kiangan War Memorial.
