September 21, culled memories of my youth. The Philippines was confused, there was total silence, no media, nothing. I was in high school then. My parents, who were apolitical didn’t know what was going on.
This happened for two weeks, then we were awaken with the news that Martial Law was declared. Commoners that we are, we were not directly affected, but to a young mind, that made me realize that someone can actually dictate what one can do and think on a larger scale. But then again this was not much different from the control that le parents has implemented and the persuasive way the church was leading us.
Indifference can go a long way indeed.
