for several years now, i’d like to call myself an apolitical person. my fondest and relevant memories of me participating and exercising my sovereignty was during my college days. a time when i looked at the world, not to mention the government thru rose-colored glasses.
as life took its toll on me and harsh reality creeped in, i slowly lost hope the country’s political/ justice system. for some reason, i have stopped believing. the dream just died of ” natural causes”, i like to call it.
i surprised myself yesterday. i watched president noynoy’s very first state of the nation address (sona). i held on every word he uttered. it was short, realistic, and heavily loaded. the nation must have felt it too because everywhere i look people are watching. a stark contrast to the previous “effigy-burning” addresses.
i desperately want to believe that the tide will turn. that there is hope for our country. that we will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
