"Ano ba i-Toh Kuya Ninoy?" (What's this, Big Brother Ninoy?)

Tomorrow marks the 20th death anniversary of Ninoy Aquino. Twenty years have passed and looking about, I can only shake my head as I read about Ping Lacson's revelations about Mike Arroyo, Kuya Gringo and how he remains in hiding, etc., etc. Trillanes and company have finally shut up -- I suppose they don't want to keep on "yakking" which to me is a brilliant decision since the more I listen to them, the more I am turned off by what I hear.

Talk is cheap. I hope that in the next twenty years, people will do more and talk less. We owe it to our kids. We owe it to ourselves. We owe it to people like Ninoy Aquino who believed that the Filipino is worth dying for.

Let me end by posting here one winning entry from the Dalitext contest, presently on-going:

"Napakasarap pakinggan,
Mahal ko ang aking bayan.
Mas masarap maulinigang
Ginagawa ang naturan."

The name of the writer escapes me at the moment but I'm sure you agree, he or she hit the nail right on the head.
