As 2016 comes to a close, this will probably be the last post for the year. 2016 has been a very slow year of blogging, mainly because I failed to begin the year with a goal as I did in the past. So, come 2017, it will be at least one blog entry every fortnight. Here’s hoping for longer weekends in the year to come!
On a side note, some of you might have read or heard about what is happening in the Philippines’ war on drugs. What both the local and international media has failed to emphasize is how bad the illegal drug situation has gone out of hand over the past years because the previous administrations have turned a blind eye on the issue. Even I was surprised at how extensive this drug problem is, but the good news is that we now we have a duly elected president who is actually doing something about it. While there are questionable methods being employed by government enforcers, there is also an equal or greater possibility of drug syndicates killing off anyone who can be linked to them. Worse still, there are plans to destabilize the Philippine government by people who have been so used to wag the dog but dare not try it with our current president.
I want this drug problem eradicated and I want to make it clear that we will never have another president who has the balls to address this issue head on. What I wish at this time is for the international community to lend support to our fight against illegal drugs. Our country needs support, not condemnation nor interference.
That aside, it is still peaceful here, and we go on with our daily lives.
And here I end my blog for this year with photos from one of my favorite spots.
Merry Christmas to you all and a Wonderful New Year. Thank you for dropping by.
