DAVAO CITY (MindaNews / 27 June) — Decent and simple, quiet but deep.
The revealing attestations made by the people you worked with made you grander not only in life but now even in your passing.
I pray that your death will reawaken the patriotism in each of us and be braver and mindful in choosing a new batch of decent and authentically patriotic leaders!
May your death be a signal of an end to apathy and greed of those who are intoxicated in power!
Like you, and your parents, and the other past patriotic Filipinos, I believe that truth, justice, and peace will triumph!
That our country and our people are worth living for!
Salute and sail on…
