these nationalistic songs reminds me of my dad’s. though his funeral was not as big as cory’s is, for the small town of lucban, it was pretty big comparatively. the church was full, with some people standing in. its a sad thing to realize. leah salonga’s song is especially touching. im not a cory fan, but edsa one touched my soldier father and rebel mother’s lives.
so kids, take time to appreciate things that came to pass before your own time. it all touched as in different ways. though there are still some things that resulted to very bad things in our recent history, there are still some incredible manifestations in our emotional and psychological nature.
we need to remember our nation, our different ways in fighting for our freedom, and most of all, our love for our countrymen and even our respective families. they wont be there forever.
