A Mother’s Love

A mother’s love has no boundaries. Come hell or high water a mother’s love for her child remains. My mother used to say that a parent’s love especially a mother’s love has no equal because she gives all she can to her child from conception to birth, from womb to grave.

As I watch Marlene Aguilar-Pollard’s hysterics, first while the NBI forces were trying to arrest her son and road rage suspect, Jason Aguilar Ivler and second, while declaring her love for her son after she posted bail for being accused of obstruction of justice, I could not help but be amazed of her love to her son. However, I could not agree with what she did in the name of love for her son.

Jason Aguilar Ivler is the main suspect for the 2004 death of Nestor Ponce, Jr. and 2009 death of Renato Victor Ebarle, Jr.. He went into hiding after the last incident. His mother, Marlene Aguilar-Pollard, announced that he could have gone to Hawaii but through the intensive surveillance of the combined forces of NBI and police, Ivler turned out to be just hiding in the basement of the house of her mother.

It is no surprise for a mother to defend her child from harm, but Marlene had it all wrong and what she did was really selfish. She knew that Ivler was the main suspect. Those two men whom Ivler gunned down left behind untimely their families and loved ones who are still praying and waiting for justice. To just think only of her own child’s well-being when others are suffering because of that child of hers is just way too selfish. Should Ivler be proven guilty of the said both crimes by the courts, I hope that he be punished to the full extent of the law. Let it also be a lesson to Marlene Aguilar-Pollard that a mother’s love does not mean supporting the wrongdoings of her offspring but instead should make him responsible for all his deeds, right and most especially, the wrong.
