"In societies where Robbing Hoods are treated like a celebrity it is but natural to expect political parties to act like a Mafia syndicate" Political Jaywalker "In a nation where corruption is endemic people tend to confuse due process with aiding and abetting criminals" Political Jaywalker "War doesn't determine who is right, war determines who is left" Bertrand Russell "You have just one flash flood of money, you keep your people poor.

Bayan Ko

The Philippines in all its beauty and splendor painstakingly assembled by pnaymommy3, posted at youtube is a timely reminder for us not to allow the trapos (traditional politicians) to spoil, ruin, and pillage our nation with their wicked lust for power and mismanagement. To those who can't make it physically to the inter-faith rally and other street protest against the corrupt Arroyo regime we offer you Bayan Ko or you can head to Marvin Bionat's Philippine Update to light a virtual candle.
A video showcasing the beauty of the remarkable places & people of the Philippines set to the music of Freddie Aguilar's "Bayan Ko", (my country) which sometimes gets mistaken as the Philippines National Anthem because of its popularity.

Here is the translation to the lyrics of this moving song.

"Bayan Ko (My Country)"

My country the Philippines
Land of gold and flowers
With love in her palms
She offers beauty and virtue.
And of her modesty and beauty
The foreigner was attracted
O, my country, you were enslaved
Mired in hardship.

Even birds that are free to fly
Cage them and they cry,
Much more a beautiful country
Shall long to be free.
Philippines my beloved,
Cradle of my tears and poverty
I'll aspire,
To see you truly free.

Hope you enjoy the video as much as pnaymommy3 did in making it.
