Although I know the whole story as an enlightened and critical-thinking citizen, this whole article still sent chills down my spine and tears down my cheeks. I thought my country had seen the end of a dictatorship era when, as a 21-year-old college graduate, I joined a people power uprising and successfully threw Mr. Marcos out from his 20-year seat of power. It does not seem so these days! I pray for more courage for you, Ms. Ressa, and determined international support, please, for the long haul you will be in! Congratulations for the many recognitions bestowed on you for your work!
