Would you like to be in Jun Lozada's shoes today? I, for one, wouldn't. As he said in his testimony in the Senate earlier, he wouldn't want to wish what he went through on anybody.
I am glad though, as much as I wouldn't want to be in his shoes, that this man is there to fill them.
Do you believe him? Do I believe him? Unfortunately for us, the way things have gone in our country, it is very hard to know anymore who is on the good side and who is on the bad side. From what I have seen so far, though, I see no reason why an Electronics and Communications engineer like him, leading a pretty quiet and normal life would risk life and limb if what he is saying is untrue. From his actuations, I perceive him as very candid, quite forthright, and with an unbelievable sense of humor (e.g. lagyan ng yelo para paliitin ang bukol, intramurals sa eskwela) even while under stress. If his story is untrue then I guess he can always take up a career as a scriptwriter or a novelist as I think that what he has said is quite incredible to be invented.
Whatever comes out of all of this, even if nothing comes out of it -- Mr. Jun Lozada will come out of it with whatever respect that he has left of himself intact. He has shown all of us that this country will be made great again not by politicians or by prominent people in government, business, society and media but by not-so-known, imperfect Filipinos who will choose to do the right thing even when it is difficult.
