This is a very powerful plea coming from the wife of Ferdinand E. Marcos’ rival to the presidency, Doy Laurel who gave way to Cory Aquino as the presidential bet of their part. Maybe what Marcos has done for the country will outweigh what wrong “they think” he has done; stresses Mrs. Laurel.

[VIDEO]: THE STORY OF FORMER PRESIDENT MARCOS.
She knows something most people don’t
Celia Diaz Laurel urges Filipinos to recognize the good Marcos has done for the country instead of dwelling on his alleged sins. “It is the time that we recognize him for what good he has done; she said. In life, we must not dwell on what wrong a person has done. But maybe what he has done for the country will outweigh what wrong “they think” he has done,” she said. Even Mrs. Laurel thinks that people are misled into believing that Marcos has committed the accusations against him.
Husband Gave Way to Cory Aquino
Doy Laurel was one of the critics of the Marcos regime, for alleged human rights abuses. He was supposed to run for President during the special elections on 1986, but he gave way to Cory Aquino’s candidacy. Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani that some wanted to be exhumed incidentally fell on the former vice president’s 88th birthday. He is also buried at the Libingan with a hero’s internment.
Many Anti-Marcos in the Past Realized they were Wrong
If the late strongman steals the wealth of the people, why are the gold intact at the World Bank for gold reserves of the country? Why is his budget for 20 years too low compared to the Aquinos’ 12 years and Ramos’ 6 years – but he has the most infrastructures done that still exist until today? It only takes a little common sense. Do you have it?
