Hi fellow Filipinos, are you for or against former Pres. Marcos to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani? Why? Personally, I think he deserve it since during his time, he once made the Philippines famous with his good projects.. I think people focuses only on his failures and forgetting the good things he did also.

i think he deserve to be buried in the libingan ng mga bayani because he was a former president of the republic and it just right for him to be buried there.i dont know why people make a big fuzz on it they are getting too personal on him and yet they cannot even prosecute those people who they claim that robbed the republic of their money.

I strongly believe that Pres Marcos desrves to be buried at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani. He deserves a heroes burial, not only for having been the President of the Phils, which he has brought to the road of greatness, but also for having served as a soldier during WWII. All the allegations of wrongdoing has not been proven to date. Twenty years have passed yet, no one has ever come up with solid eviednce that he indeed plundered the nation's treasury. What his detractors did, was to put him trough trial by publicity, and to which the Filipinos have easily concurred in. And where is the Phils now? It is heading to nowhere. It has been logged behind by neighbouring Asian countries...so sad.. It's about time that this matter should be put to rest inoder that real unity and progress can be achieved. If only Cory Aquino had not been vindictive when she assumed as President, the Filipino people could have adored her more, and would have healed the wounds created by the so-called "people power." After all, Pres. Marcos had achieved more than his succeeding predecessors has.

Well i am not personally against for the former Pres. Marcos to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani. Finally, Pres. Marcos should by now be buried in his resting place, anyway he had good deeds done here in our native land which is Philippines. We should forgive & forget what the wrong doings he had committed. marilyn23

Hi rayne, it's true that Pres. Marcos have done so many things in the Philippines. he was the one responsible in giving electricity to the remote areas through out the country. he made us no. 2 in Asia and many more. its true also that he had done so many atrocities, though he was not the one doing it but still he still have the command responsibility being the president of this country. i am very much agreeable that he be laid to rest in the libingan ng mga bayani because he deserves it being the former president of this country. the problem with us Filipino people, we always tend to focus on the bad sides of the person. we seldom credit those good traits and good deeds of the one we criticize. let us just bury the past and just move on to a better hope for the future.
