she is the mother of democracy…
a simple housewife, who was asked to lead our nation on its first steps towards freedom, who fought the giants, the dictatorship of marcos and his cronies to turn her husband’s dream into a reality — has just been diagnosed with colon cancer. major dailies, local and international news, internet videos and articles have already talked about this… encouraging everyone to pray for her survival.
one thing that touches me is that amidst the difficulties she is undergoing, she continues to defend us from oppression.
our prayers are with you, mrs. president.
*i have been apolitical all my life, except when it comes to how my countrymen went to the streets in 1986 to topple an administration that handled us with iron fists for 20 years.
