Twenty-four years ago today, several gunshots were heard. Then, shouts and commotion followed. Amid the organized confusion (so i guess), two men lie dead at the tarmac of Manila International Airport. One was Rolando Galman, the other, a bullet pierced through his skull, was Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino, the man who said that “The Filipino is worth dying for.”
IF ONLY, we understood well and took these words of Ninoy into our hearts and minds, “The Filipino is worth dying for“, perhaps, our country would have been the greatest nation on earth.
No Filipino would ever equate his or her worth to pieces or bundles of these.
