Thank You For Bringing Us Back Our Freedom

I just watched the Journey of Ninoy in TV and I was so touch and admired by his story, who would not be? I guess all of you knew what happened to him right? Why did he choose that way when there is another easiest way out?

My father admired his determination of fighting just to have our democracy back but he can’t showed and tell it to the whole world because he is afraid that someone might know and our life must be in danger, he used to tell us, yet I was just I guess 7 years old at that time, that if someone asked us who would he vote, we will say we don’t know. We have to whisper when we talked about government and military.

I was just so young to know what life has been during that time, we are blessed because my father was with us and even he wanted to join the rally but he chooses to stay because of us. And I guess, your parents had choose to be quiet so that your family as well, will not be in danger unlike some of those people who tried their best to tell the whole world that what Filipino needs at that time is freedom and democracy just like Ninoy, although he had been imprisoned for 7 years and 7 months he never lose hope that someday the Filipino will achieves its freedom, a freedom that we deserve. Yes, he almost gave up as every father, he wanted to be with his family and laugh with them, embrace his kids and all that. But prayers and inspirations lead him to sacrifice more; I was just too young to know about that, too young to understand why he has to offer his life in exchange of freedom.

Right after I watched that episode, I bowed my head and whispered a little prayer, saying my thanks to the LORD, because he has sent us someone who would serve as an instrument to help us to open our eyes and had fight a peaceful battle, thank you to all the people who endeavor their best so that we will be freed from a law that has never been right for us.

I know that we are still struggling until now, some Filipino’s are still dreaming of a good life, some are still hungry. But now at least we are free to talk and to say what is it in our heart and in our mind, life is a matter of choices, it is still up to us what path should we walked into, with GOD is our strength I know we could defeat whatever storms will come our way.
