EDSA Shrine

EDSA Shrine

Just to share the good news...our President already lifted the state of emergency (she did last Friday), and although this is already late news...I'm still glad to share it!

And to "celebrate", let me share with you this photo of the EDSA shrine, built on the same place where the 1986 People Power happened, the spontaneous uprising that put an end to the 20-year Marcos dictatorship. Today, the shrine, topped by a mammoth bronze statue of the Virgin Mary. It is not just a place for spiritual worship, it is also an arena for political struggle, demonstrations and protests.
