Filipino awardee wants to create a better RP
By Angela T. Lopez January 18, 2005 | The Philippine Star TF! Editorial Comment: The Karangalan Conference will have been held by the time this comes out but the work will have just begun towards undertaking the concrete actions out of which optimism grow for the Filipinos. History, it has been said, is written by the victors but who articulates our present? This power, and the responsibility, while frequently co-opted by the moneyed and influential, must go to those who seek hope, especially for the poor and marginalized. This is not the case in current day Philippines, the so-called "sick man of Asia." The article however shows that hope is everywhere in evidence for those who wish to build a positive future for all; and not just for a few.
