EDSA 1, 2, 3 - Pilipinas Ko - Magkaisa!?



So February 23, 2009 is a holiday? Another long weekend for non-call center employees. We've had a number of People Power movement. Which People Power movement are we celebrating?

So February 23, 2009 is a holiday? Another long weekend for non-call center employees. We've had a number of People Power movement. Which People Power movement are we celebrating? Personally, the most memorable is the first EDSA Revolution. I enjoyed it - A lot! No classes for almost a week. I really didn't care at all. I didn't understand why my parents were saddened by the demise of the Marcos regime. What I can remember, clearly, was the never ending video of Ninoy Aquino's assasination. It's a classic heroic act! A classic case of an unsolved mystery.

So Heroes live forever? Maybe? We've celebrated EDSA Dos and Tres, but where are the Heroes of these revolts? Have they turned into Villains? Fugitives? Only time can tell. I just find it amusing that our country never learned. We even have patriotic songs that didn't stand the test of time. I hope I'm wrong.

Here's a video of Regine singing the famous EDSA Revolution song - Magkaisa with The Company. I also included an audio file of the original version recorded by Virna Lisa. Reminisce....






Virna's Version

Mga sira! Talk about EDSA and you don't know what it means. You all deserve to die. If you happen to go to the EDSA shrine, please visit the Ortigas Complex just behind it and observe it at night. You know who live there? KOREANS! Korean owned condominiums, Korean restaurants, Korean shops, etc. You will even see Korean dogs being walked by Filipina maids. Where is the spirit of EDSA now? Have we sold our country to these slit-eyed slavers?
