No classes today for it is the 25th anniversary of the 1986 People's Power. It was the time when the Martial Law led by the late President Ferdinand Marcos ended. it was the time when the widow of Ninoy Aquino stepped up and became the president of the Philippines. After 25 years, Noynoy Aquino, the only son of Ninoy and Cory Aquino now sits as the president of the Republic. After 25 years, the cute and sassy daughter of Cory and Ninoy reigns as the billboard queen along EDSA. Her lovelife exposed for all to scrutinize, disparage or envy.

The question now is could Ninoy be proud of his son's presidency and Kris's infamous "celebrity" status? We'll never know. But! I am quite sure that the rest of the Philippines would have preferred a progressive, God-fearing, honest society as led by the leaders in all sectors of society. How I wish that the 1986 bloodless revolution was not all for naught. There is hope. There is always hope.

  1. I believe that the spirit of EDSA is worth commemorating, and is actually the beacon of hope that many Filipinos hold on to. We are all hoping that in our lifetime, we will see our nation rise up and prosper. We have so much to offer the world. Our land has enough resources to feed and clothe everyone if only they were used wisely and effectively.

    It needs to start with each individual. And then may PNoy succeed in his goal to clean the government, may all institutions heed the call to reed themselves of graft and corruption.

    It was not all for naught. :)

  2. @vera: yes, there is hope. i agree that change should start from each Filipino. we cannot point our fingers to other pinoys and tell them to change whereas we ourselves are not ready for change.
