    To the Inquirer: Post your Ads in Storytelling Competition in the Halls of LGU’s, Government Center, etc. majority, if not all, of our so called “public servants” are great story teller, they promise everything and do nothing! Thats why nothing much changed since EDSA 86 People Power. Sad…
    “Komenich found that the people who were in power in 1986 were still in power 25 years later. The rich remained rich, living in lavish houses or occupying important political positions.Similarly, he found the ordinary people he had photographed in 1986 still living in the same farms and slum areas where he came across them 25 years ago. The poor remained poor”.Quoted from:Pulitzer Prize winner thanks Filipinos for photos of Edsa IBy Edson C. Tandoc Jr.Philippine Daily Inquirer1:21 am | Monday, September 24th, 2012
