I'll be celebrating my 17th birtday next week! And I'll spending it in Gawad Kalinga, building houses for the poor. No, I'm not running for elections, so don't think that this is a tactic.
Anyway, more news: February 24, 2006. The Philippines was declared A National State of emergency. We were already in school, but after some hasty decisions, we were sent home. Close to Martial Law, but still not quite. I can't believe that I'm living in such a chaotic world--or make that country. And that I'm--all of us Filipino citizens--reliving the infamous events of the 70th decade: Marcos' reign.
It's pretty ironic since yesterday was also the 20th anniversary of the peaceful People Power revolution that paved way to our liberty from Marcos' dictatorship and bloody rule.
