THEY CAME TO ANNOUNCE THE RAIN
May 25, 2007
Layug–layug as we called them in Bikolnon. They came to announce the rain the other night. They came at the time when the heat seemed eternal and God-given. And what a welcome sight. After-all it is almost June, and with this we are reminded of drizzles and school children walking about in their raincoats. We just hope that their classrooms are ready to house their intellectual pursuits.
We hope to see the election fever washed away by the rain. After much bickering, it is time to cool down and work on the real issues and get things done. What is the use of our insitutions if their machinery will not work for the people? If not then we better not have them.
The layug-layug came and went. It was just a visit after-all.
