Vox Populi, Vox Dei

A few days more and it is election time. The most controversial day, the most important day for us Filipinos, as we, the people will be deciding who will lead our country for 6 years.

Yes, 6 long years. We have been complacent with the people who have ruled us, complained about the wrongs they did, but have we ever thought of ourselves what if we are placed in their shoes. What could we have done?

On May 10, we will be practicing our rights of suffrage. To think well and to choose well, that will be our mission.

I am actually tensed as what the outcome of our first ever automated election will be. The machines seem stupid to give out the real results as what is heard from the latest news, and election is just 6 days away. Very depressing.

In other towns, the race for the positions are just too much, the killings, the criminal acts. They are just too much to take.

I have served twice as an election officer, that was long before the automated election was borne in the minds of COMELEC. It was an enjoyable service for the people of the land. We read results because it was a written election, but I still think those are the most credible election results as there are a lot people who check and re-check the accuracy of the results.

Have you listed the people you think is fit to rule the land? I hope you choose wisely. I am hopeful that amidst these confusions, we will still get ourselves a clean, honest, credible election. And I am praying that we will have a peaceful and orderly election this time.

But for those of age who will not vote, or who have no intention to vote: Wala kang karapatang magreklamo sa ating mga opisyales in the next six years.

Let our voices reach the people of the land. Do not be part of this May 10 indifference, Go out and vote!
