Youth loyalist group on Marcos’ burial: Keep good, peaceful fight for better PHL

LAOAG CITY — Amidst the second oral arguments of the Supreme Court on the burial of Former President Ferdinand E. Marcos (FEM) at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, the Miriam Defensor Santiago – Bong Bong Marcos (MDS-BBM) Group appealed to fellow supporters to “keep fighting the good fight.”

“(Let us) show (our support) in a peaceful manner, let us unite. If there’s peace, there’s unity,” said Reichner Galindo, who served as lead organizer and youth conveyor of the MDS-BBM Group during the last election.

The group insisted that the late strongman deserves a hero’s burial because he was a president of the country and undeniably a soldier.

“Late President Marcos is the catalyst of change. Marami siyang naibigay sa atin (at) sa bansa natin. Hindi natin maipagkakaila na tawagin natin siyang bayani…dahil naranasan ko e, nakikita ko hanggang ngayon ang mga magandang nagawa niya para sa bansa natin,” Galindo added.

Asserting that accusations against FEM are not yet proven until now, Galindo called on the Filipinos to face the future with healing because the past can never be turned back.

“Kailangan na nating gamutin ang mga sugat sa ating mga puso…Ang akin lang, panahon na para harapin natin ang bukas. Marami naman tayong natutunan dati. Time to heal the wounds.”

Galindo also urged both the supporters and critics to unite in order to ease the burden which divides Filipinos at present.

“Pagaanin natin ang ating mga nararamdaman. Sa tingin ko maraming mababago sa buhay ng mga Pilipino lalo na sa mga anti- at pro-Marcos. Magtulungan na lang. Eto na yung panahon para sa pagbansang paghihilom.” PNA/northboundasia.com
