1976 Marcos secured an island in Coron Palawan, a 150-200 hectare w/19 of which is planted to rice beach island w/a natural spring and lush virgin forest my sister in law calls Aban Aban Island an ancestral domain, where she lived with her Tagbanua family at age 10,now with her daughter who is now also a mother now until 1st week of April 2012 is celebrating her families first reunion with around 10 other members who traveled from Pangasinan and others from El Nido and other islands where they are thrown at gunpoint by men on board ship/helicopter that unfateful day. They suffered with those accountable pretending they have clean hands. Now my sister in law and my brother wants me to do help his kids who are undeserving of their fate so I wrote a letter to Imelda Marcos saying
"I should have wrote you long before. I think I owe you my job in SCECO(KSA). Thanks that it so happened that your Wage Commission Chief whose husband happens to become your PSG/PPA head. So sorry to have asked them,my first cousin, a character reference and a calling card. I thought it was the last thing I did that year 1980 since the cancellation of my first passort due to a Marcos travel ban to TENRI. It took me 3 decades to realized one simple truth - those things you want to happen will not happen and those that you donot want to happen will happen. Now, my brother sends me copies of her kid's passports so they could follow the path I chose - overseas. It is not really good to be an exile his kids who are undeserving of their fate must grow up normally just like any other kid with their grandma (like the way she, Imelda, treats her's). Honestly, my wife, a TENRIKYO who share this simple truth just tore all those gold maps she got while she was a young aspiring Japanese descendant and never felt sorry deserving that.
I send the letter to the Governors' office in Batac, Ilocos Norte - no reply just for the 2 kids
