"The Philippines isn't something you can just whip up every time you feel the need for some identity or when it's convenient or when you need to be creative or critical. You can't just choose the parts you like. You love her with all you are, contribute to her well-being, and you wrestle with that love constantly. And both of you always win or both of you always lose every fight. Because you are her, and she, you."
This is a space about all things Pilipinas. But mostly about social development issues, civil society and citizen engagement, culture and heritage, and similar topics that capture the writer's attention. It is also a space where individuals who make worthwhile contributions to Philippine society are featured and celebrated. Because there is power in sharing good stories. Because there is power in community. Dahil ang Pilipinas ay ikaw at ako.
