“Do you not see the impact on history if Marcos was buried at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani?” – Ira Panganiban

A post asking netizens who are passionately against the Marcos burial to see it from a different angle is making the rounds online.

On a Facebook post, journalist Ira Panganiban politely told the fiercest critic to the Marcos burial at LNMB to pause for a second and take a look at it from a different perspective.

In the post, Mr. Panganiban told the Martial Law victims, that they are not the only victims of Martial Law. There are many who choose to move on despite their pains because in their hearts and mind it is the right thing to do.

Besides, not all Filipinos were affected by it, hence, many people cannot understand what they are fighting for in this day and age, he continued.

Check out the full text of the post below.

Bury Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani and be done with it!!!

To those who are so passionate about this issue, please let me remind you that you are not the only victim of Martial Law.

There are many who choose to move on despite their pains because in their hearts and mind it is the right thing to do. Let the politicians do their job and let history be the judge.

And then there are also the many ordinary citizens who did not see martial rule as evil because their lives were not affected by it.

Do not condemn them for their experiences and decisions. They had different lives and views from yours. Your pain is not theirs and their pain is not yours. Do not be too presumptuous to claim your pain is the whole nations’.

Besides, do you not see the impact on history if Marcos was buried at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani?

A purported dictator and criminal forcibly buried in the midst of the nation’s heroes!!!!

Is it not such a stinging rebuke to his family and memory that every time people pass by his grave at the memorial people will say “Here lies an evil man in the middle of honorable heroes, a fool who thought himself a hero.”

What a more fitting tribute to his memory to be the most despised memorial in a sea of honored graves. And it stands there for all eternity as witness to all that he is accused of.

Or are you afraid that the truth may not really be as convenient as it has been painted these last 30-years.

He ended his post with a quote, to remind the anti-Marcos camp that there are three kinds of the “truth” in the world.

There are 3-kinds of truth. Your truth, their truth, and the real truth.
