Filipina Killed in NY Shooting
I knew from the moment I saw her photo on the news that she was from the Philippines. Dolores Carbonillas-Yigal was among those killed when a Vietnamese immigrant opened fire inside the American Civic Association building. She is from Cebu and has been living here in the US for 3 years with her American husband. News reports said that the gunman was frustrated from not finding a job and angry at the humiliation he received from not speaking good English. Why he chose to kill fellow immigrants taking classes to learn how to speak English will never be known. My prayers go out to all families who are affected by this tragedy.
