I just saw another Facebook friend share a photo in admiration of a dead dictator’s presidency.
Like being tortured all over again. This must be how it feels for the tens of thousands of survivors required to relive the nightmare of their incarceration and abuse during Ferdinand Marcos’ dictatorship, to be able to qualify for a share of the compensation set aside for them.

History always teaches us one constant lesson – that change is constant. The process is known as evolution, an eerie turn of life’s wheel that guarantees change at any cost, at all cost. There is an apparent trajectory that collective behavior creates, sometimes subtle, sometimes quite visible. The difference from era to era, from one society to another, is the rate of change. But even at its slowest pace, change happens. It always does.
