Ang mga batang rallyista. Nakauniform, ba't wala sa eskwela?

Sabi nila history raw kase. Well, say hello to HISTORY for it just repeated itself!! Students are forced to join the protest like what their teachers and school heads did back in the days. Pushing kids to go to the streets, threatening them with failing grades if they don’t participate. Someone even said it was one of their requirements in high school to pass the school year. So, let me say HI to “People” Power, too. More than half of the Filipinos weren’t even born during the EDSA revolution and the number of protesters was just a pinch of Philippines’ population at that time.
And please, if you ever get the time, read this article and weigh your so-called FACTS or HISTORY. It’s sad that the military even disobeyed Marcos’ order NOT TO HURT the protesters. They were not even following him anymore. Can you guess whose orders they did follow? Di ko sasabihiiiiiiiiinnn..
Eto, basahin niyo…
I know many people were hurt, tortured, killed during the Martial Law, but let’s not pretend that it was all just Marcos’ or his family’s fault. If it’s real history, then it should be there not for us to hate each other or to divide this country but to let it serve as a lesson. We have social media now. No one can ever do that to us again. We can express whatever we want. There’s no point in hating the dead. Victims or not, we owe it to ourselves and to our future generations to have peace and move on from the darkness of the past.
PEACE, LOVE AND UNITY

SOME of us are still hurting because we chose not to forgive and it’s hard to forget when we can’t forgive. They said forgiving is easy, but to give him a hero’s burial is too much. HUWAAAAAAAAT?? This kind of mentality is what’s pulling us down in the midst of change and progress. Kelangan ba talagang ipamana pa natin sa susunod na henerasyon? Just because it’s written in the books, doesn’t mean it’s ALL true. Our history books are flawed! There are victims, yes. But how sure are we it was all his fault? How can we move forward if we are still living in the past? Isa pa, laban nila yun! Tapos na po ang Martial Law. 2016 na. Let’s face our own challenges today. If we really want to think of our country’s welfare, making this issue last won’t help AT ALL. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever. Instead of teaching our children to be angry, let us educate them to be peace-loving citizens. Hatred does not cease by hatred.
What's your opinion on this?
Paki-check nalang din anong nakasaad sa batas natin, na nakalimutang pagtuunan ng pansin ng kongreso.
Rep. Act 289:
Section 1. To perpetuate the memory of all the Presidents of the Philippines, national heroes and patriots for the inspiration and emulation of this generation and of generations still unborn, there shall be constructed a National Pantheon which shall be the burial place of their mortal remains.
HINDI nga po siya bayani. Kasi nga naging presidente siya. PRESIDENTE!
