My heart is full.
But I know the battle has just begun for the hearts and minds of the Filipino people over the kind of future they want.
Do they want a dictatorship or a democracy? Do they want to hand over their civil liberties to one man who has promised them a glowing future or do they want to fix the current elite democracy and fight for one that is more just and inclusive.
When I was writing this book nearly all of last year, it was a very lonely occupation. But now that it is out of the bag, so to speak, I find myself surprised, amazed and grateful for the wonderful reception from my colleagues in media. I was only able to tell them at such a very short notice that I was soft launching this book on Marcos Martial Law: Never Again. But they came. And those who didn’t sent words of support.
