Eulogy for Mother Petra Macliing

Mother Petra did not allow herself to be limited by the traditional stereotypes circumscribed by society on women. Widowed early, she successfully raised her seven daughters as a single parent. She was a farmer of organic rice and vegetables. To augment her income, she set up a sari-sari store. And although she had not gone to school, she was able to earn enough so that she was able to send all of her seven daughters through school all the way to university. Even when she had already reached an advanced age, she was still interested to enrol in an adult literacy and numeracy class to improve her basic skills.

By itself there is nothing wrong with federalism or even amending the Constitution but we are more concerned of the real score behind the push for Charter Change which is beyond federalism.

As The Bamboos Sway: An Igorot Veteran’s Story

This Memorial Weekend, I feel it fitting to give tribute to my father-in-law, who, as far as I know, must be the first Igorot from his Bontoc tribe in the Cordilleras to have joined the United States Navy. Unless someone or somebodies claim otherwise, in my personal record, my father-in-law was the first ever to have done so. And Those were the times in the 1930s when Filipinos were recruited to the US Navy only to paint the sides of the ships, shine the shoes of the officers, peel potatoes, work the food galleys, or just walk the dogs of the officers’ wives; and had a glass ceiling above their heads that they could not rise above the ranks beyond E2s who were relegated to the jobs I just mentioned.
