You got to be kidding me!
I read this post from a personal blog by an Entrecard member. I am trying to leave a comment but it won’t work. I would like to tell the author of this blog that…
1. Ferdinand Marcos was a dictator who killed so many Filipinos and was not even sorry for it. Sure, some can be attributed to her crazy wife, Imelda Marcos. But then he’s still the president who could have done something to stop all the craziness back then.
2. He stole so much money from the country that he made Switzerland so rich! It could have been our country but then he stole what should have been the citizen’s money.
3. Remember the bombings???
4. He ruled for 20 years and who really knew every little dastardly thing he did during that time? He wouldn’t have stopped being the dictator if not for the People Power with Cory Aquino.
5. His family still won’t return the money they stole!!!
So, blog author, do you really want to give this man…
President Ferdinand E. Marcos, the great military man, the former Commander-in-Chief of the Republic of the Philippines deserves to be treated the way we did to Cory Aquino. Full military honors, paying tribute to what he really did for the entire nation, the good side of it.
Yes, we are taught to forgive and forget. We are a Catholic nation. But then some things are really hard to forget. Forgive, sure. But to even think of giving this man honor???
