I would’ve written something nice for August 21, the commemoration of Ninoy Aquino’s death, but I remember the headline from two years ago:
Ironic, isn’t it? What was supposed to be a turn in the positive direction has led us to where we are now, a place where no journalist can criticize a non–transparent leadership, a time when freedom of expression no longer is a right but almost a crime. Did you hear the news that the number of politically–related killings for this year has surpassed the record for any of the Marcos dictatorship years? Is the Filipino really worth dying for?
Sometimes, I think aloud.
