This is infuriating a story because it happened right in the area of the school, a Catholic University, where I am teaching, and the disregard of the able financially, intellectually, emotionally, medically.
“At this point, not one of the La Salle students streaming out of Henry Sy Hall and into their private cars bothered to look. A crowd, however, did gather around the man’s body, which was rapidly turning cold: his fellow de-padyak drivers, JC, Renzo, and the other street kids, who were flagging down occupied taxis and banging car windows to get them to pay attention. Not one of them ever did, and only a tricycle driver — probably another relative — finally agreed to take him to Ospital ng Maynila.”
