reponsible for putting gloria in position
May 3, 2008 9:04pm CST
I was in fourth year college student back then. I have a math exam the following day. The rally was held in Divisoria, from where I stand I saw classmates studying in the food chains. Well it was a hard subject, but I didn't care. I was with my sister, I am very proud to the printings at the back of my t-shirt: ERAP RESIGN! Despite having an exam, I was in divisoria along with the others, we have demanded for that powerful person to stepped down. Back then, edsa was occupied, news channels were in demand, the whole Philippines revolved simply on one thing, the no votes won on opening the 2nd envelope that lead to people to the streets. Did I know, that after that incident, a worst scenario will take place??? Nobody can really tell... At that time, I only did, what I think was right, simply making a stand. Already six years have past, our country is still suffering nothing did change, although the dollar exchange is going down. The prices of our local commodities is going high. Unemployment, Corruption and Poverty is more visible in the country.

Hi I respect you. I didn't regret what I did. For me, at that time, that is the most rightful thing to do. You see every body has his her own choice. I choose to take part. Life is a matter of doing it or not doing it. We simply decide which is which, I decide to be involved, I decided to make a stand. Rather than just simply watching and be a spectator. As for voting, I never missed voting, I know it is only a one vote, but somehow I do hope that my one vote could make a difference. As for those corrupt officials, life goes on. For now, they may be experiencing all the joys and beauty of life, but hey... life is not just about happiness and joys... Everybody experiences deep sadness and sorrow, it will come to them. As for us, filipino hopefuls, we are still hoping, because we know there is hope.

Wow, is this a hangover or what, you seem like a sweet lady a year ago. Nah, don't feel bad about what you did then. Its the right thing to do at the time. You just stood up for what you think is right, how could that be wrong? I was about to go there too but they said its over. What bothers me is the "now". Why did we let these things to happened? We could curse anybody in the government, blame them for that and what? I honestly believe the problem is not with them but with us. ... huh! don't force me to use my super powers... he he he bati tayo.

Our situation will never change regardless of who ever becomes our President unless we change our greedy ways and hypocratic attitude. This remark goes out to all Filipinos but it especially applies to the people who are seated on government positions and holding key roles for our country's development. Let's face it, the Philippines has become a pithole of greed and corruption and we're all responsible.
