I wonder where I’d been the past two days. It’s only tonight that I learned that former senator Raul Roco had passed away yesterday, 5th of August at St. Luke’s Hospital. He’s one of the few Filipino politicians I admire. He ran for two presidential elections but was never given the chance to serve in that position. He inspired of the young generation that there is still hope for the country. I was one of those ordinary citizens who believed in him and his party, Aksyon Demokratiko. Sadly, I wasn’t able to express it during the last presidential elections.
