AMIDST the second oral arguments of the Supreme Court on the burial of late President Ferdinand E. Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, the Miriam Defensor Santiago–Bongbong Marcos (MDS-BBM) Group appealed to fellow supporters to “keep fighting the good fight.”

“(Let us) show (our support) in a peaceful manner, let us unite. If there’s peace, there’s unity,” said Reichner Galindo, who served as lead organizer and youth conveyor of the MDS-BBM Group during the last election.

The group insisted that Marcos deserves a hero’s burial because he was a president of the country and undeniably a soldier.

“Late President Marcos is the catalyst of change. Marami siyang naibigay sa atin (at) sa bansa natin. Hindi natin maipagkakaila na tawagin natin siyang bayani…dahil naranasan ko e, nakikita ko hanggang ngayon ang mga magandang nagawa niya para sa bansa natin,” Galindo added.

Asserting that accusations against Marcos have not been proven, Galindo called on the Filipinos to face the future and let the nation’s wounds heal because the past can never be brought back.
    
“Kailangan na nating gamutin ang mga sugat sa ating mga puso…Ang akin lang, panahon na para harapin natin ang bukas. Marami naman tayong natutunan dati. Time to heal the wounds,” he said.
    
Galindo also urged both the Marcos supporters and critics to unite in order to ease the burden which divides Filipinos today.
    
“Pagaanin natin ang ating mga nararamdaman. Sa tingin ko maraming mababago sa buhay ng mga Pilipino lalo na sa mga anti- at pro-Marcos. Magtulungan na lang. Eto na yung panahon para sa pagbansang paghihilom,” Galindo said.
