Let us invite families, national government agencies, local government units, people's organizations, schools, faith-based communities, the medical profession, the police and military, recovering addicts etc.to come together, listen to each other and chart a common path.

Witnesses in the poverty-stricken Manila suburb of Caloocan City say delos Santos was handed a gun and told to run last Wednesday night.
