For 20 years that he managed the affairs of the country as President, indisputably, the Philippines, at that time, emerged as one of the most politically stable countries in the Southeast Asia.  Insurgency was dissipated, separatist movement, crippled, leftists neutralized, and the strong economic performance of the country gained its reputation as one of Southeast Asia’s more developed ‘developing’ economies, international reserves quadrupled, and more importantly, the Filipinos lived in prosperity, with dignity and pride.

But despite these tremendous achievements, Pres. Marcos up to these days, is denied of the honors due him.  The disgruntled continues to lambast him with discouraging and abominating issues not to his own doing in an attempt to erase him from the history of the Philippine politics.  This, perhaps, is because of the fear of comparison.

He was accused of draining the coffers of the country when, in fact, his personal assets were much more than the total expenditures of the country during his 20 years of leadership.  Allegations which, even after his death remain unproven, even in international courts.

The greatest moment in the life of Marcos was EDSA1- the time when he acted no longer as President and Commander of the Armed Forces.  With the rule of the Natural Law, his ‘anima’ made him behave as a mother of the nation with endless and selfless love for his country and people- he preferred to leave his position rather than see bloodshed.

Time has passed.  He has been dead for a decade, yet, his spirit lives on.  Those who believed in his brilliance and achievements regard him.

“The Greatest president the country ever had”
