Several years ago I posted an article on my old blog about a friend of mine who had been martyred while visiting a jail in the Philippines.
Even though it happened almost 27 years ago, this morning it was in the news again, thanks to disturbing comments made by a current candidate for the Philippine presidency.
What does it say about the world when vulgarity and misogyny can be seen as traits worthy of a nation’s leader? It’s clearly a trend NOT unique to a particular candidate hoping to be the Republican candidate in the US.
If I hadn’t seen a story on the news this morning I couldn’t have understood why my old article on a mostly inactive blog, could accumulate 300 views in one day.
