Pamela Jagdeo: She is crying
because according to one Facebook
response to me was that some par-
ents have unconditional love for
their children despite the paths the
child takes in life; at the end it is the
children's decision. Not his. Don't
judge the parent unless you do know
Brian Alcantara: Despite what a
parent knows of their child's activ-
ities, there is still something called
unconditional love. When reality
hits, emotions would flow. We can-
not judge the parent here since we do
not know all the circumstances in-
