Let him rest in peace

After 27 years of waiting, finally the former Philippine President and dictatorship Ferdinand Marcos buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani (a cemetery where Filipino heroes, army, policemen, Presidents/politician are buried).  His family is patiently waiting for almost three decade waiting for this day to come.  Some are against of him buried in the Libingan nga mga Bayani because of what he did in the past.  The people never forgets the martial law he declared years back.  Many are who go against him are missing, and their families are seeking for justice up to now.  They are protesting of President Duterte’s decision to bury him in the Libingan ng mga bayani because to them he is not a hero.

Yesterday was the burial of the former President Ferdinand Marcos.  Protesters are angry and making noise.  They are blaming the supreme court for allowing it to happen and angry of President Duterte’s decision.  For me, even though he did wrong things in the past he still have the right to be buried in the LNMB, because he is a former President of the country and a member of the arm forces of the Philippines before he became the President.  Let us not dwell on the things in the past that hinders us to move on.  We have to forget and forgive.  Let him rest in peace as well as those victims in the martial law.  Instead of protesting, we have to continue moving on for better future, and let us punish him for wrong doings he did when he is still alive.  Stop the hate, make peace and let us support President Duterte for better Philippines.

Just my opinion

One of the most talked about issue in the country is the burial of the former President of the country Ferdinand Marcos.  He is dead more than a decade but not buried yet because the debate if he will be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani (cemetery in the country wherein dead President, heroes, soldiers, etc.) is not yet finish.  The reason many opposes if he will be buried in the said cemetery is because people do not consider him a hero or see him as the former president of the country because of the declaration of martial law during his term.  He was blamed for the missing journalists and activist during his term.  Even though, his supporters still believes and fight for his right to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

But this issue will end soon because the present leader of the country decided to bury him in the said cemetery.  This was one of his plans (Pres. Rodrigo Duterte) when he was still running for the position of the President.  Debates and rally here and there opposing the decision of the President, but the President is firmed to his decision.  This is to end the gap of the people involved in the issue.  The President, said that he has the right to be buried in that cemetery because once he was the soldier of the country.  And I guess the president is right.  Let us not fight over this long overdue issue.  In my opinion, the President did the right thing.  Past is past, let us forget what happened in the past for us to move on for a better country.
