(Thoughts while waiting for my spot at Fiesta Rizalista)
Having only 1 official anything in an archipelagic culture is definitely a divide-and-conquer colonizing tactic don’t you think? It ranks alongside the inappropriateness of having among the world’s smallest navies patrol one of the world’s longest coastlines.
What’s the use of upholding a National Hero? Role Model? So who prefers a book-wielding man in European garb over a bolo-wielding man in manggagawa garb? Why did whoever decided this issue prefer the latter? I wonder what the debate was like.
Sana man lang bihisan natin ng damit na angkop sa tropical weather. Ang init ng suot ng National Hero natin.
Kasi naman noong araw pag nagpa-kodak dapat naka-japorms na tulad ng mga amo. Ngayon, kahit sino, kahit saan, selfie ops!
Maganda yung rebulto ng National Hero natin sa Calamba. Wala pang building sa likuran.
