    I am a grade 4 parent and when i heard the news it just broke my heart . I just came from my sister’s in-law funeral, but didn’t even feel much sympathy. It is really a tragic death and such a waste of life. But as we know, God has a purpose for this . My daughter asked me why does God have to do it in such a tragic way? All i can answer was everybody dies, but in different ways. what is important is to always be ready when you meet God. I hope we can all pray for both parties for peace of mind and God’s grace to forgive. It will be hard, but once God releases His grace, you will just be surprised on how you are able to forgive. I know both families involve will be used for God’s greater glory.

    Maybe Ateneo can get advice from other schools like Xavier and ICA. not much students crossing.

    I heard about the tragic accident last Tuesday from my Gr. 6 son and our driver who helped get Amiel out. I feel the grief and pain the Alcantara family must be going through. It could have been any one of our children. May God’s loving embrace welcome Home little Amiel and heal the deep wounds this has left on the families involved.

    I am not from Ateneo, I don’t even know him, but hearing and reading about the incident is shocking for me. I have kids who go to school. I can’t imagine same thing happening to my kids, or to any other kids in a place no one would think it would happen. What happened to Amiel is unimaginable. I feel sorry and saddened by it. My prayers go to Amiel and his family. God be with them in this time of grief, in acceptance and in facing life ahead without Amiel.

    My son is also an Ateneo student (grade school and now high school). I can’t think of the right words to express my grief about what happened to Amiel. As a mother, my heart bleeds for Amiel’s Mom and for Mrs. Torres as well. I know they are both in their darkest hours. We will continue to pray for Amiel and his family and for Mrs. Torres and her family. May Amiel find himself in the Lord’s embrace and in Mama Mary’s loving arms.

    We are parents of Ralph from 4-Subanon. Our son was never a classmate of Amiel, nor do we know the Alcantaras and Torreses.

    But as Ateneo parents we feel the tremendous and immence loss and pain that both families must be going through now. We are shocked, confused, hurt and frustrated even, for this tragedy.

    To the Alcantaras, please accept our deepest and sincerest condolences for the loss of little Amiel. We know that no amount of commiserating from anyone will bring little Amiel back to life, and we can only imagine your pain and sense of loss, anger and blame even.

    We can only offer you our prayers to our heavenly Father for hope – that little Amiel is now in the arms of Him our God, in perfect joy, happiness and peace that none of us on earth can provide; for trust – that out of this sadness will bring about truth and goodness even in the midst of evil, sadness and death, for His greater glory; for charity – that Amiel’s life, though cut short so suddenly, was able to touch your lives and so much more lives now, including ours and the hundreds of Ateneo families who are now grieving with you. May God, the Resurrection and Life, bless you always. Amen.

    To the Torreses, we can only offer you also our prayers, knowing that you never wanted this to happen, not to anyone. We can also only imagine what you are all going through now. May our God, who is rich in mercy and compassion, guide you and give you abundant peace. Shalom.

    To the Ateneo family, I humbly suggest these:

    [1] May the present Grade 4 batch conduct a memorial for Amiel every year, starting next year, and every year thereafter until the Grade 7 year, with a Mass every Feb 24, or the day before if such is a holiday or falls on a weekend.

    [2] May Amiel’s life be remembered by instituting solid programs/plans at the AGS for more student safety, not only during dismissal but also for the whole day while they are in school, including parking issues, etc.

    Amiel, please pray for us also and ask God to bless us, your Ateneo family, who are still struggling here on earth. With God’s mercy and your prayers, we hope to see you in heaven several years from now.

    When I heard about what happened to Amiel, I felt so much pain. It was as though he is part of my family.
    I am crying until today…. when the I remember what happened to him.

    Reading all the comments posted… I am not alone in what I have been feeling…. everybody is shocked and in terrible pain too.

    There is so much love for Amiel from everybody, that they are willing to do something so that it will not happen again.

    My initial reaction then was a big, huge WHY…. it is not fair for Amiel… why should Amiel be in that spot… sana the cars parked were the only ones damage… the posts… BUT NOT AMIEL.

    I prayed for Amiel, his family .. and as I pray thoughts came to my mind… Amiel may not have been safe where he was… but now is very safe because he is with God now. He will be our little angel…. I even asked my relatives who has passed away to take care of Amiel.

    As they say, everything happens for a reason… and maybe … Amiel being a Boy Scout …. is making us aware there is something to be done in the present system in AGS with regards to traffic management.

    Parents, students, drivers and yayas must focus on safety of the children being picked up.. and


    To the family of Amiel… we will be praying for Amiel and you. What you will go through will not be easy.. take it one day at a time… you have our love and prayers.

    Walang iba pang dapat sisihin dyan kung hindi si Theresa Torres. May driver na nga siyang dala, inutusan pa niya itong kunin any anak nya instead na sya ang gumawa noon. Napakatamad, siguro ayaw mainitan! Pagkatapos paandarin ang sasakyan nyang hindi naman siya marunong. Dapat lang niyang itong panagutan ng buhay din niya sa kulungan.

    Ang role na nga ni Theresa Torres ay magsundo na lang sa anak niya. May driver na nga siya. Hindi pa niya nagawa ng mabuti ang dapat niyang ginagawa. May mga tao talagang napakamaarte. Utusan ba naman ang driver para kunin ang anak niya. E siya dapat ang gumagawa noon. Ano pa ang silbi niya. Magdisplay sa Ateneo. Tapos paandarin ang sasakyan na hindi naman siya marunong. Dapat lang na hindi na lang siya sumasama sa pagsundo kung ganoon din lang ang gawain niya. Wala naman siyang silbi kung hindi kapahamakan lang!
