In Memory of Those Who Fought
May 20th, 2008 posted by erwinilao under Uncategorized

Just want to share with you a blog from one of our soldier members at www.ownlegacy.com

I would not want to sleep. Because when I do I am haunted. The many faces of anguish, that indescribable look of the mortally wounded. Some dead, others wishing they were. Some with their arms outstretched, extended, while others just plain dismembered.

I see Nature., the fields over the horizon. The mountains lining up the sky, meeting it in peace and serenity. I see skies after the storm, the sound of lush green leaves as dew falls over the sand. At night the moon shines unearthly bright, harrowing shadows transform into ghoulish figures, shattering the peace. And then it explodes. Like thunder. Only that after or prior, instead of lightning what gives are screams…streaking.

I dream, I dream.

They have been long gone memories. Should have been gone long time ago since I first step foot. Through the carnage I moved past away, walking away from the dead. The fallen left behind. Though not the memories. For in my sleep I dream. I dream. And I wish I would not sleep.  



About the author: 1990 - Freshman belonging to a seminary called the Marian Missionaries of the Holy Cross. The very first student to run out of St. Vincent's Bldg. from the Registrar's office when the violent earthquake of 1990 began. 1992 - Fresh out of the seminary and back to the corridors of the institution. Feeling the need to belong to something or someone. That was when I found SAMAKA. 1993 - Elected President of the College of Liberal Arts, really did nothing but hung out with Morfe, Echauz, Mercado and the Filipinism ideologue. Most were SI Fraternity members. 1994 - Got tired of student politics and joined the MASP, a popular group of Student Speech instructors who knew how to clean tables and do teachers' errands. At least we got paid and I got to "own" the Speech Lab off the 2nd floor of the ST bldg. 1995 - Elected as President of the Adamson University Student Government (AUSG). The election was a landslide courtesy of a no-show opponent, a dysfunctional left-winger, an ambitious "speaker", and my being a popular student teacher. Not that I did not deserve the position at that time. My term was the most peaceful the last fifteen years prior. Here are My Achievements: - Minimal pillboxes thrown off the campus since I keep them in my Cabinet at the AUSG office., - Less frat wars since I attended their drinking sprees in front of Cardinal bldg., - A more religious contribution from the AUSG, never before done, during the celebration of World Youth Day - More parties or celebrations like a week-long festivity during the Student Week, a College Student Government celebration, a fund-raising dance party for Lahar victims and other sorties we would not mention. I am glad I was part of this institution. I am proud to say that it was because of ADU that I am who I turned out to be. For more of me, visit www.ownlegacy.com.
