Straight from the heart

I am from the Philippines and I heard the news that a Taiwanese fisherman was shot by Philippine Coast Guard personnel.

I heard that our government does not want to apologize. I am embarrassed about its decision and its pride.

On behalf of my countrymen, I would like to say sorry from the bottom of my heart. I understand how you feel right now. I hope that you will not hate us all. Hoping for your kind consideration. Again, I am sorry for what happened.
