In Memory of a Great Kulasa.

The past two weeks has been a rather tumultuous one for Philippine politics. While we may not be at the throes of a revolution or coup de état, we have to recognize how two very important women in our history have shown us the faces of good and evil. Both these Philippine Women Presidents have filled pages of the broadsheets, magazines, and blogs with tales that bring pride and shame to the name "Filipino". On one hand, we have the simple Kulasa who became an unwitting hero by carrying on her slain husbands dreams. On the other, the extravagant, self-indulgent daughter of a former adored president.

However, despite the shame I feel now about how we are being led by a leader who seems to be living in a world of fantasy where her economy is strong, I still hold on to the pride I have as a Filipino and believe that indeed, the Filipino is worth dying for. As such, we have been given the gift of a free nation and I will do my best to be part of this democracy.

Here's to the Great Kulasa, President Corazon C. Aquino. May her soul rest in peace.

*Kulasa, for those who do not know, is a term of endearment used to call students of St. Scholastica's College.
