REMEMBERING EDSA I

 Be it known throughout the ages and generations to come the glorious days of the Filipino as a race in the dying days of February 1986 (Feb 22 - 25) when Filipinos liberated themselves from the bondage of Martial rule.  It was that time in history when our race stood out from the rest of the peoples of the world... when we were looked up to by people from
East to West... North to South - all in awe for the spirit that united us as one people to topple a tyrant. Armed with virtually nothing but faith and prayers, Filipinos rallied to say "enough"  to a regime which did not only corrupt the coffers of the country but also caused the prostitutionalization of our culture. 

 If we ask our grandparents what the word delicadeza means, I am sure they can reply us without spending a second.  That is because that word is a part of what their generation was.  Makabayan, prinsipiyo, hiya, amor propio - too are the words that they surely can relate and give lecture on. 

26 years after EDSA I, do we still remember the momentous date?... the significance?  Have we absorbed the essence of unity displayed those days to promote our interdependence?  Have we instilled in our hearts that unbelievable miracle of faith and prayer?

26 years after the historic year of 1986, can we talk about the same words that our grandparents could talk about?... or can we talk more extensively about the opposite?  When during the times of our grandparents, anyone caught stealing would be ready to commit suicide out of the disgrace... now our present culture condones stealing especially those of enormous loots.  When during the times of our grandparents they shy away from gifts and pasalubongs... in our generation, the opposite are aplenty.  And our grandparents have a word for that - timawa.

26 years after our emancipation from Marcos rule, have we found real liberation?  Have we freed ourselves from the corrupted dog-like culture ... or have we regressed further?

PEOPLE WHO WORKED FOR EDSA I UNLOCKED OUR SHACKLES... LET US MOVE FORWARD AND GROW OURSELVES... OUR CULTURE...OUR NATION! 

MABUHAY ANG PILIPINO!   

 Ninoy Aquino was shot dead at the tarmac in NAIA (then called Manila International Airport).  His death triggered the tsunami of sentiment that inspired the Filipino people to pull the plug of Marcos era... as uttered by then Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile "Enough, Mr. President, your time is up."

  Upon call of then Jaime Cardinal Sin, people fearlessly went out of the comfort of their homes and barricaded EDSA.  Nevermind the guns... the tanks... people realized that freedom is more important than life.

 In no time... deluge of people... freedom loving people.

 

 Then EDSA was flooded with souls who wanted to restore freedom and justice for themselves and for the generations to come... that we may live freely...

 

 SHARING... no one is alien to none.  Multitude of people ate.  Food given by people many of them did not know.  They displayed an epitome of equality - no one is rich, no one is poor.  All they knew was they were all Filipinos and fighting for a common cause - freedom.

 To all the heroes of EDSA I, seen and unseen, known and unknown, and to God who showed His way of freedom through peaceful means... MARAMING SALAMAT PO!

 PROUD TO BE A FILIPINO!
