FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN
By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio

GOD IS MERCIFUL AND JUST


Ever since the beginning of this world, God has worked in signs and wonders. As a Christian, I believe that by His Word alone everything under the sun, around the sun, and over the sun and the sun itself were created.

Now what do you make of a massive Filipino people presence that engulfed the funeral procession of former President Corazon Aquino a few days ago and took more than eight hours from the Manila Cathedral to the Aquino family burial ground in Paranaque, Rizal.

The first ever and even bigger people turnout in a funeral march happened during that of the assassinated Filipino Senator Ninoy Aquino, President Cory’s husband in 1983. This preceded the historic People Power Revolution that led to the downfall of Marcos the Dictator and put Cory Aquino in power to dismantle dictatorship and restore democracy in the Philippines in 1986.

I can see the timing of Cory’s death before the upcoming 2010 presidential elections in the Philippines as a glaring sign that any attempt to stop the elections and extend the presidential term of the incumbent president will spell a similar uprising that could turn to be tragic for the culprits.

Let’s now hope and pray that all the parties concerned in keeping peace and democracy in the Philippines listen to the voice of God reflected in the resounding voice of the Filipino people that justice shall reign for such is the Will of God.

End
