Independence day seems to be just a piece of footnote in our lives - just another day. Juxtapose it with today's biggest headline - the kidnapping of Ces Drilon, and feel the irony. No wonder many Filipinos just want to pack up and leave the country. Maybe its our way of freeing ourselves of our bondage. Only this time, we free ourselves not for our country, but away from our country.
