It was February 25, 1986 when President Marcos stepped down from his throne after two decades of dictatorship. Today, I kept telling my children about EDSA People Power by which I have witnessed in my generation. I couldn't imagine how people were united that time despite the fact that internet and social media did not even yet exist. Today, the recent protests of other countries like Egypt, Libya and Greece remind me of our own People Power that sets the world a history for a bloodless revolution. Unlike their rallies and protests, ours was a peaceful revolution with only prayers, rosaries and flowers used as arms to end the dictatorship. Watching the video of 1986 People Power made me feel proud to be a Filipino!
