The whole nation mourns over the execution via lethal injection of 3 Filipinos in China. The three -- Ramon Credo, 42, Sally Villanueva, 32, and Elizabeth Batain, 38 -- were arrested separately in China in 2008 for smuggling heroin and sentenced to death.

The execution made by the Chinese government has drawn several reactions from different set of people citing the Philippine government as not doing much to save their lives. The Catholic church and Amnesty International has both been very vocal of their disappointment with the Aquino administration. But while saving the lives of these Filipinos seem to be task, ket us not forget that they did something bad as well and they did it on a foreign land. We can't expect the government to flex its muscles and get in the way of anothe nation's legislation and laws.

What we can do now is to remember that wherever we are, we should always put in mind to do only what's just and what's right. But as for these 3 souls, all we can do is pray for them and their families.
