iniibig ko ang Pilipinas

I went to EDSA Shrine a few days back.

If it weren't for the chapel underneath which held weekly Mass, I'd say it was basically invisible to everyone passing within sight of it.

The cleanliness was unnerving, and I felt a twinge of guilt at my shock.

I feel relief, and anger, and disappointment, and frustration, and just so much love, thinking about what this place means to my country, but I don't know what to say to do justice to how I feel.

I had to leave to get back home though; promptness for dinner will always trump patriotism in my family.

Looking at these photos I still don't know what to say. This country has let me down so many times, but I know I will never be home anywhere else.
