The former President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos is finally laid to rest, November 18 afternoon at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani (LNMB), Taguig City.
Following the November 8 Supreme Court’s decision allowing the former president to be buried at the LNMB, anti-Marcos expressed their strongest rage against the decision they said is a complete disrespect to the Philippine history itself and to the Filipino people who were victims of the martial law. That is their version, the vocal majority as they claimed.
Meanwhile, the silent majority as I could claim, are in celebration of pride, honor, justice and reasonableness, and exoneration now that the former President Marcos will be finally laid to rest after decades of victorious waiting.
The former President Marcos hero’s burial today came by surprise. “Like a thief in the night,” his burial arrived at its final destination. But it is worth it. It is just fitting and reasonable. Marcos family deserves a private, personal, and a dignified ceremony for a funeral of a former congressman and a senator, an awardee, a soldier, and a former President Ferdinand Marcos, who had long been denied of this recognition. Long live the Marcoses! Long live his legacy of bravery, brilliance, statesmanship, and unity. They say, his burial isn’t unity but the opposite. However, only history can prove us right or wrong. ▲
