“Never argue with destiny. Just be on top of it.” —President Ferdinand Marcos on his wife Imelda (during their stay in Hawaii before his death).
At Peace with the Truth
The former First Lady Imelda Marcos believes that they survive prosecutions by individuals, governments, and superpowers because they have done nothing wrong. The court dismisses all of the late President Corazon Aquino’s cases against them. She survives the tough ordeal for more than 3 decades. It is because she is at peace with the truth, she added. How can Filipinos help them to be on top of the country’s destiny?
A Man of Foresight
Imelda Marcos confronts her husband once. Why does a man of foresight did not foresee what they had been through? No country, resources, and freedom. The former President Ferdinand Marcos firmly responded: Imelda, never argue with destiny. Just be on top of it.
The Destiny of the Philippines
The country will be great again. We often hear this but amidst the pandemic, it seems like a dream. The unemployment rate, recession, and corruption incidents are hard to overcome. Richer countries can’t even fathom the current state of the world. The plea of the Marcosses is often set aside for the Congress to look into FEM’s last will and testament. This is a shout out to the Filipinos who can drive this forward in unity.
