A New Beginning

Just as my 17 years in the US passed so rapidly, I look back to my first blog entry ten months ago and I am amazed at the speed of time. I am thankful that I was at least able to get some of my thoughts written. For many years I had kept a journal, until I started taking care of terminally-ill AIDS patients long ago I found that I simply did not have the time to spare to collect my thoughts and write. I regret this now and should have made time.

I am back in Manila and from out of nowhere, I recall Thomas Paine's words: "We have it in our power to begin the world all over again". Suddenly I am optimistic that our nation will finally rise from all the petty yet destructive politics that has consistently held us back.
