Pinay sisterhood wins
Living in a DUturd defiled world where lives, liberty, loyalties have been corrupted and compromised these five years has been a living hell. Very little hope could peek through, even with the tireless efforts of the most driven and committed.
Rodrigo Duterte’s heavy handed reign of heart stopping killings, profanity riddled incoherence, and disgustingly voracious greed has brought the Philippines to an all time low — even worse than our Marcos martial law dystopian days.
For the past five years we watched stunned and shocked while this inept madman unraveled before our gaze and the malignant tumor of his greed and madness filled us with dread and poison. In this dark hopelessness, it was the women he targeted with his vileness — who rose up and showed us how to diffuse and debunk his ugliness.
Across the world as the traumas women hold and bury in their bodies burn bright i defiance — we looked to Vice President Leni Robredo and investigative journalist Maria Ressa to pull us through a succession of too many bad days.
Duterte’s bully behavior, goon actions, and bad governance brings to light what we all have put in a box and made taboo for so long. Once released by the truth these women stand up for — it creates a tsunami of revelation that reverberates loud and clear.
Even his heavy machinery of trolls and weapons of mass destruction failed to shut down the facts and fight these women ignite and rekindle. Robredo’s announcement of her 2022 presidential candidacy and Ressa’s recent Nobel Peace Prize win — heralds the end to Duterte’s misbegotten power grab.
These women are our national pride and wave of the future. Halleluiah to the spirit that shines in them. May they succeed at pulling our nation out of the muck and mire Duterte tried and failed to bury us in.
Hope has returned to the Philippine people as these dim dark days fade into the past as we proudly own our feminine power.
