Like a thief in the night, the dictator’s corpse is snuck into the Libingan ng mga Bayani in lightning fashion, to avoid the protests that would surely accompany it to the grave. Until the end the Marcos family displays their characteristic treachery on the Filipino people with no regard for the victims of Martial Law.
This is the family that President Duterte wishes to revise history with, and it is Marcos’ martial law that Duterte wishes to reintroduce in the country. In their desperate efforts to forget the widespread atrocities during the brutal rule of Marcos, Duterte and the Marcos family also forget the courage of our people in fighting for justice and freedom, a fight they gave their lives for, a fight that we will continue.
Thus the real heroes are in the people’s hearts and minds, they are in the true Himlayan ng mga Bayani. Marcos is no hero.
We have our whole lives to imprint that into the next generation, and the next and the next.
