This is quite a long story. Out of maybe hate  for Sen. Trillanes’  investigation on Calida’s contracts with the government when he was still  a part of it, the latter forced Pres. Duterte’s hand to issue proclamation 572 saying that Sen. Trillanes (back when he was still a soldier) did not file an application for amnesty  when he was jailed for seven years and was granted amnesty back in 2011 by then Pres. Aquino.  He has since resigned when he ran and he won as Senator  back in 2010.

The Dept. of Justice filed a motion for his arrest in two courts in Makati.  The first  judge let him out on bail while Judge Soriano dismissed the case  a few hours ago after almost two months studying the case and reviewing all the papers submitted by Sen. Trillanes. What has been decided upon previously can no longer be overruled. A single solitary voice showed what true justice is. And in a world where most Filipinos are losing their faith in the justice system, Judge Soriano stood for all of us.

I am so glad democracy is still working in our land. Those trolls and Duterte diehards rejoiced earlier and they were so excited to see Sen. Trillanes in jail. Sorry for you guys, Judge Soriano is a fair judge, he could not be dictated upon by your  president.

Here’s a link on what happened today  at Makati RTC Branch 148 and here’s photo of a triumphant smile from Sen. Trillanes.

He is the only one brave enough and outspoken enough to question the wrongdoings of this government.

This is actually a re-blog.  Something I wrote when I was just starting to blog here. I love the idea of what real friendship brings. I don’t  think we really need a test when it comes to real friendship.

Friendship goes a long, long way though, you would somehow feel, deep in your heart if a friend is real or not.  You may lose touch, going separate ways and alleys, embarking on separate journeys, but distance is not a hindrance. That first hello may end up with a goodbye, too soon. That first smile might  be replaced by tears  but it is always at the instance of meeting again that erases all the tears and the longing,  and you feel as if you’ve never been separated after all. You might have grown older, matured enough to face life’s challenges but the essence of friendship remains, because it is as timeless as your memories and as precious as your own.

The actual words are not mine, they were just shared by a friend.

Real Friend Test

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.

A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears..

A simple friend doesn’t know your parents’ first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.

A simple friend hates it when you call after they’ve gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history. A real friend could blackmail you with it.

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them. A real friend expects to always be there for you!
