Rare Gem

While everybody was enjoying the Halloween season, sad na balita ang tumambad sa akin nang mabalitang binawian ng buhay ang isa ko pang paboritong senador na si Juan Flavier. He died of multiple organ failures due to pneumonia and he was just 79. Nakakalungkot. Sobra. After his political career, he lived a humble life, out of the limelight.

'Di ko makakalimutan kailanman ang kampanya niyang "Let's DOH it!" noong health secretary pa lang siya. He decided to run for senate at 'di siya binigo ng mga taong nahumaling sa talino at charm niya. Na-reelect noong 2001 as if ayaw ng mga Pilipino na mawala siya sa senado. He is less controversial, wala kang maririnig na nakaaway niya or even corruption issue. What a rare gem in Philippine politics.

MD, DOH Secretary and Senator Juan Flavier, saludo kami sa'yo. I'm sure the angels are singing at welcome na welcome ka sa heaven. We will certainly miss someone like you ♥
