First of all, I strongly believe that he has the rights to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani. But let us not forget all the bad things he did because of his greed in power. Let us put in mind what the former president of Singapore Lee Kuan Yew who was a great and successful leader whom he made to flourish the place which is now "Singapore"
Lee Kwan Yew stated in his book that the filipino has this soft and forgiving culture only in the Philippines could a leader like Ferdinand Marcos, who pillaged his country for over 20 years, still be considered for a national burial. Insignificant amounts of the loot have been recovered, yet his wife and children were allowed to return and engage in politics. we are so shallow quite forgetful of our past, PLEAASE LETS put a stand to this and change this. Its time for the Filipinos to shine, Ferdinand Marcos doesn't derserve to be buried in the Libingan ng mga bayani. From the phrase itself, it states there the word "BAYANI".
BAYANI (hero) means A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life. Marcos was no Hero. He and his family lived a life of greed and corruptness. Living in their opulent palace while watching the rest of the philippines starve to death and drown in poverty.
Let us not forget the thousands of people that in his command were put to death, the political corruption in our system and their taste of luxury and opulence and becoming one of the cause to the Philippines having billions of debt to foreign nations. Until now, are still left unpaid. How about the anomalies that he had in the government. The disappearance of thousand of people. The suppression of the rights of the people, the press, the media. Everything was under his control. Just because of a little dark thing called GREED.
Please, let us not forget after his reign the Philippines was on its way to going down the drain and hitherto WE HAVE NOT YET RECOVERED. I am an 18 yr. old college student. I believe as a Filipino I have the responsibility to take part in the country in my small ways. As a Christian, It would truly give glory to God for me to show my care and love for this country and for my people. I do not want to be apathetic and pretend that we are okay because WE ARE NOT OKAY. Corruption is still widespread and please, let us give honor to our mother land. Let us not bury Marcos sa Libingan ng mga bayani. Where's the justice in that?! For the Love and Honor of our country, please let us not ruin this honor by burying some dirty greedy and corrup ex-president who once ruled this country. Let us not put in vain the death of our marty NInoy Aquino who gave his all for the love of country who fought till his last breath. Let us not put his death to waste. PLEASE.
