MISSING THE ACTION by: Kiko Ortelano

Moving on . . .

Some events the past week forced your lowly provincial farmer to rethink his positions on key issues regarding our advocaies for Pampanga.

Allow us to reiterate that our loyalties are to the advocacies and not to personalities.

One of our most difficult tasks in our advocacies is the part where we need to educate our intended constituencies. It is only through the clear appreciation and actual personal possession of such advocacies where we can look forward to lasting postive consequences.

We will not make excuses. But allow us to state that we may probably need more than our lifetime to achieve the educating tasks. We can even venture to propose that even future generations may not be able to achieve this fully.

But we have to take the first step.

This we did.

Unfortunately, the political landscape is still personality based. Even those who participated in our crusade for Good Governance and Responsible Citizenship were really just "swept off their feet" in 2007. A lot of us went back to our "normal lives" after the election.

Even those who were our partners in 2007 seem to have fallen the same trap.

We blame no one. In fact we can even blame ourselves, as we sincerely believe that all of us could have done more. But we did not.

Kiko Ortelano will not be muzzled by anybody when we speak of the truth.

We realize that sometimes, we need to accept defeat in a battle so we can win the war.

It is with deep regret that we inform our dear bloggers that Kiko Ortelano will be moving on.

Our expression of truth will continue; but in another forum.

Aku pu i Kiko Ortelano, Kapampangan Tutu!
