Power Out(r)age

Yesterday, January 16, marked the first year of the start of People Power 2. Erap, just to remind everyone, was ousted on January 20, 4 days after.

Classes were called off yesterday in the Ortigas area. I had to go through a two-hour traffic jam last night. I don't know why we insist on celebrating so-called historical events by disrupting the normal flow of things. Maybe we should all just stay home and observe the day, individually and quietly.

After all, not much has changed. The same pressing problems are still there. We talk about People Power IV and clearly, people power has failed to accomplish anything long-lasting. We should have stopped with the first one is my thinking at this point. It's time to look beyond us, people. Let's look to a higher Power this time.
