No no No!! You’re missing the Tardis in Stary Night and Sunflowers were for Amy!!!
This is simply amazing.
When I was about 11 years old I spent the summer at my great grandfather’s home in the province. The old house had a small library full of dusty books. Some of the books belonged to my aunts, some to their parents, and others possibly to their grandparents.
One afternoon, having absolutely…
Because I love books. Or as our lovable language-mauling hipster friends would say, because books. :p (Thanks to howtobelovelyfor the photo!)
Every Filipino knows that today we mark the 28th year of the first EDSA People Power Revolution. I remember that event with pride and honor, despite everything that has happened in Philippine politics since then.
But I say this: shame on all of you who say that the EDSA revolution was useless. Shame on all of you who say that it didn’t change anything. The truth that you fail to realize is that the freedom you’ve been enjoying from that moment on is something that you owe to all the men, women and children who braved the tanks and the soldiers; who stayed there for three days despite the threat of death in the hands of the dictator’s military; and who fought in more ways than one to restore freedom and dignity to every Filipino.
Things may not have gone the way we planned and new politicians are trying to rob us of our freedom again, but that peaceful revolution gave us the much-needed breathing room to be free. That revolution empowered us to always stand up for our rights. That revolution showed us that if we unite toward a common goal, we can achieve something remarkable.
We should therefore remember those three days in EDSA with pride and honor, not because of the personalities involved, not because of who was ousted, but because those three days in EDSA will always serve as a strong reminder to all would-be dictators that Filipinos have the capability to come together and oust an abusive leader. May you all have a fruitful day.
Sadly this is no longer possible in my house, with all the termites destroying the books on the shelves. :(
