25th EDSA Celebration: Celebrating The Democracy Or Just A Good Party?

EDSA People Power Celebration
This is not the latest article for the EDSA Celebration last Feb. 25 2011. Everybody is reliving the scene and reminiscing the feeling of all in the streets during that victorious moment. This is the moment of our countrymen specially those who in front of the tanks, praying, chanting and watching the history unfolds in front of them. It’s always nice to be with the memory on how the people came to the streets, equipped with what they know and the guts of what everybody else must do, fight for the rights and democracy for all Filipinos. This victory of ours is a manifestation our consciousness for our society that every celebration of it must have a learning experience to awaken the roots on what are filipinos back then, or they are extinct to the present generation.

Many teens today are just watching in online tubes on what is the situation back to that marvelous hour. They say they are feeling what they are feeling back to that moment just watching at it, you have no idea. They are not smiling back then and just waiting it for it to end in like a fairy tale. It’s not that simple, there are no assurance that it will end peacefully.

Although we are the first to celebrate democracy but isn’t it has the same ground with independence day? Fighting for democracy is such a serious matter, it has a deep meaning for all of us. I am not bitter about the recent celebration but I am just wondering is it proper? Watching,most of them if not all, the new generation of hope to be leaders, is “partying” and not educated what others has sacrificed on that moment. We should move on and not to be bitter but on how it’s celebrated and what is the mindset we are giving to this kids, that It’s all but a good feeling, that’s it.

I as a Filipino every celebration of the EDSA Revolution should be noticed all over the world. The meaning of it become useless and irrelevant every year that we celebrate it like that. The celebration should be culturally inclined and not like a noon time show, it’s too bright and shiny.

The call to be an advocate it’s not you said it then it’s done, the passion should be called and the consciousness should be awaken.

We can all praise the event that it’s a huge success, but we can do it better next time. We can say and talk about this every year but what mindset do we leave to the new generation, it’s just a day of partying and get drunk afterwards.

Here are some of the activities that should be in the news and not those celebrities, “cause history class is so boring, it’s too early and it’s hot outside… ”

February 25 will kick off with an Honors and Flag Raising Ceremony at 7:30am at the People Power Monument and an Unveiling of a statue of Cardinal Sin in Rizal Park at 9:30am.

Job Fair will also be held from 7:30am to 3:00pm at the POEA Building, featuring 25,000 job openings for work abroad. An Unveiling of the Marker will also be held at the POEA building at 11:00am to mark the exact location where President Cory Aquino delivered her speech during the People Power Revolution.

The northbound lane of EDSA will be transformed into a fair ground for the whole day, where celebrants will be able to see the actual tanks used by the soldiers during the revolution. People can also take part in a military-style Boodle Lunch set for 2,500 people including CEOs, LGU representatives, student leaders, and others.

Salubungan Program will also be held in the afternoon to reenact the moment when then-General Fidel V. Ramos and Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile joined forces against Marcos.

Royal Treatment for Bolante

Manila – Philippines, Jocjoc Bolante returned in a bang. In a stretcher to the St. Lukes Medical Center. Well, is this an aliby to cook more lies while resting in the hospital? Well, that we don’ t know, but I hope he get well soon.

While transferring to his room, many of the St. Lukes’ patients that had waited for how many hours or days in the hospital just to get a room, is still left in the lobby.

I hope he really get well soon, to answer all the queries of the Philippine people. The farmers need justice to the P700 million of fertilizer fund that they do not know where it goes.

By the way? Why St. Lukes? Government should have a fixed location to all who are under investigation, that is sick. There are a  lot of government hospitals, and the Filipino people will be the one to pay that hospital bills? So that’s where our taxes goes and our rotten waiting shade is just waiting for a fix.

It is a very sad that the government is still blind to this “BULOKRACY”.

I hope the farmers will have justice and the senate hearing will end in favor with the truth!!!

Blessed be!

Philippine Status : High Upkeep

“Our country and our people have never failed to be there for us. Let us be there for them. Now,”

She admit it! Mrs. Arroyo admit that the people put him there and she must return the favor for her people in the Philippines. This is how she repay the people who put her in office, Poverty? SONA (State of the Nation Address) 2008 a report for the people to know the current status of the country. Well another “TELESERYE” the people, some watched and some just frustrated on what the President said.

President Gloria Arroyo

“As your President, I care too much about this nation…I will let no one, and no one’s political plans, get in the way of the well-being of the people. I will let no one hinder our people’s progress and prosperity. I will let no one threaten our nation’s survival. This is my commitment,”

Yeah right! You cared too much, you put all the citizens of the Philippines down. Prices are high, Rice which is the basic commodity can not afford by the poor (and even living in the middle class). Unemployed – Increased! VAT-retained!!!!! So where is the care to that?

Filipinos do not understand what she said in her recently ORCHESTRATED SONA, because they can not feel the care, the progress. Mrs. Arroyo is boasting about the .50 centavos cost for each text message but what is the use of that for those people who does not have mobile phones. Besides, it is not a government project after all, promo runs until OCTOBER 2008.

Why she keeps on making tales that Philippines is growing? It is hard to manage a country, It is a given fact long before she runs for the office. Mrs. Arroyo is like a kid playing a toy that she does not know!

Mrs. Arroyo Please read: Running a country for DUMMIES!

Good Day and let’s do something that makes sense!

God Bless!
