BECAUSE 'THE JOB OF A CITIZEN IS TO KEEP HIS MOUTH OPEN.' -- GUNTER GRASS
Tuesday, November 02, 2004
November 1 musing If I were to have my way, I'd be cremated, my ashes dispersed in the nondescript air, thereby freeing my descendants from the tedious, superficial displays of filial piety required on November 1.
I am currently the president of the environmental organization Health Care Without Harm-Asia (HCWH-ASIA). Previously, I served as the mayor of the Municipality of Gubat in Sorsogon. After studying politics at the University of the Philippines, I was a campaigner for the Burma program of the Initiatives for International Dialogue (IID), and later for HCWH-ASIA.
