Say A Little Prayer For Him

I was surprised when my officemate told me about his sudden demise last Friday afternoon.

Amidst the choas of the times, let us all set aside our differences and political beliefs for a while, even for one day and say a little prayer (in any way we can, however we do it, whatever religion) to this great statesman of our country.

As someone pointed out, isn't it too coincidental that there are already two candidates for the presidential elections last year who had already succumbed to natural causes (first was Fernando Poe, Jr.; now, it's Raul Roco)? I don't want to sound creepy, but let's pray that nothing like this would happen again.

it doesnt surprise me that the local media covered an actor's wake for close to a month and i barely see any airtime for a person who has undoubtedly contributed more to the country. (legislation, policies, public service). he (his office) wrote to me several times during the last two elections. including to greet me on my birthday. hes a big loss to the country

death is part of the natural process of all living beings. there is nothing mystical nor special about it.
