Sad About Not Being Sad

12:03 PM Saturday, August 01, 2009

Like what I Plurked, I am sad and bothered that I don't feel sadness or a sense of loss with Cory Aquino's passing. I'm not happy about it, and yes, I did expect it somehow considering her age and how Kris Aquino has been acting (one could see they've been told it's just really a matter of time)... but really, I feel I should have a greater sense of loss. After all, she featured in our history in a big way. She was a rallying point when we were lost.

Maybe it's because i've been generally ambivalent about politics anyway. And admittedly, i've never felt she was my hero, my leader.

Still, my condolences to the Aquinos and Cojuangcos. And to the grieving Filipino people.
