Tuesdays #13

This was supposed to be the entry before elections... But seeing the news today with the 76,000 smartmatic cards being recalled... UNBELIEVABLE!

One cannot help but get worried and frustrated. But today, I asked myself... "What would Lola do?"

She would have told me to pray.

I think with all the hullabaloo of election fever, people may tend to forget to pray. People maybe so focused on the news and all that. But at the end of the day, I think the faithful would turn to God. Whether Catholic or not, people would always go back to prayer. I believe that this our chance to turn back to God and pray for clean elections.

I remember that there were these car stickers being given away before. I think it was in 1995 or 1998. PROHOPE was the sticker.

Pray the ROsary for Honest Orderly and Peaceful Elections.

We come at a pivotal part of our history. Come Monday (I hope), we get to vote for our candidates. The candidates we believe that will bring change, order, and good governance back in the Philippines. We need to bring back TRUST in our government. We need someone who can drive change. It's not gonna be an easy road but we need to build that road solid and straight for future generations.

Please do me a favor? :) Let's all pray for our country, for one another, and for honest, orderly and peaceful elections.

I agree... we should start praying the rosary tonight until this election is over. God bless us all!

Truly unbelievable... but at least the Supreme Court shot down the petitions to postpone the election.
