Chilling Effect

So much has happened in the two months that I was gone.

The footages of the Pen Stand-off gives me goosebumps. I wish I was here to watch the events as it happened. It’d still be on TV, I know. But for the Philippines to be at the brink of a revolution, I must be there, here. It was too much already that I missed the failed coup attempt in February 2006 (I was also out of the country) and now this?

I must be destined to abandon my own country in its darkest times…

That. is. scary.
