Ferdinand Marcos was secretly buried at the Libingan ng Mga Bayani on November 18, 2016. A thief in life, a thief in death, a thief after death.
Whether he was buried in Ilocos Norte, at La Loma cemetery, or in my backyard, Ferdinand Marcos will never be a hero. His interment at the Libingan will not erase all the lies, deceit, malevolence in his lifetime. His epithet will always be “Dictator, Murderer, Liar, Thief”. His interment at the Libingan will not change his dark legacy but it will sully the honor, valor, and sacrifice of all our heroes in the Libingan. A rotten apple in a blooming orchard of wondrous fruit.
