State of national emergency in the Philippines

  • by

The Philippines is in a state of emergency. From what I gathered , the state can take over utilities or media and has banned rallies.

I hope that our grief support group meeting with The Compassionate Friends will still push through tomorrow. After being under martial law rule for more than 20 years, I get this deja vu feeling like it’s happening all over again.

When I fetched my daughter today from her dorm at UP , I felt protective once again. I recalled the time I was pregnant with her. There was a coup attempt in the last week of August 1987. We were living in Pasig that time and I was staring a fighter planes circling up at the sky. The fear of a bomb dropping to our house was there. Now,what is going to happen this time? My poor daughter has to contend with our sick country.
