Today is my father’s seventh death anniversary. The page on him contains a column I wrote on understanding the two ways -my father’s, and his sister’s- the family chose to oppose Marcos during martial law. There’s an article by Monina Allarey-Mercado, and a more famous one by Nick Joaquin (my dad was extremely pleased by the way he got Joaquin to run the article by him for approval, so that it would be absolutely accurate). Finally, two essays by my father, one on Filipino racism, which up to quite recently was still read in some classes at the Ateneo, and another essay he wrote in Filipino, on dangerous mutations in Philippine social thought he observed in the 1960′s.
