Yesterday, we had our mid-term elections for our local and national candidates. In hindsight, the whole electoral process felt like going on a pilgrimage- you wake up early, travel, line- up, and finally you pray.
Yes, prayer. Voting felt like prayer.
As I shaded the ballots, it felt like my dreams were being entrusted to these names. I was of full of hope and trust that as these new officials serve my country in the next six years- our dreams, hopes, and wishes will be answered.
And maybe it was just me, but yesterday, that was the feeling. An act of surrender, of trust, and of unwavering hope.
I hope the feeling is mutual.
The photo was taken at Quezon City a few hours before the Liberal Party’s big rally thingy at Amoranto. Kudos to Risa Hontiveros for waving. and yes I voted for you.
