  4. May I ask why did you leave the Philippines? Your writing is beautiful, powerful, inspiring and shows your obvious love for your people, so I don’t understand why you are not with them now in your homeland. I do not wish to offend, only to understand, if you see fit to tell me. Thank you.

  5. thanks ina that i saw this link on your FB.
    just like you we have our reasons why we left the country.
    I hope that we find our dreams where we are as we pursue life with our family.
    we live in beautiful philadelphia, a very historical town founded on libety and where the consiution of the united states was signed but now our civil liberties eddeare threatened by the ultra-right.
    it would be an honor for our newsmagazine if you can contribute with us.
    me and my wife pooled our resources together to embark on this and hope it will succeed.
    regards to your family as well.
