    •                                                               PAALAM,                  Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, J.D. (June 15, 1945- September 29, 2016)   Another brilliant and courageous star in the Philippines contemporary history leaves an amazing exemplary legacy. “Footprints on the sands of time” came to mind as all of the onlookers were in waiting burst into applauses at her arrival to pay homage at the wake. At the funeral cortège preparation, were amongst those present applauding the vessel, once containing this great giant. “We will always miss her intelligent discourse;” proffered the astute Senator colleague, Richard Gordon on her brilliance. Her courage prompted the present president of the Philippines, to observe, “We lost one of the guy good guys.”  Respectfully, in agreement with his observation, please, reread Rizal’s introduction, “Noli Me Tangere.” It may have been Spain then, you draw your own conclusions, today 2016. He was a physician bound to the sacred oath, emerging from ancient Kemet, the Greeks ‘Aiguptos.’  “Do not Harm, above all.”             For Miriam Defensor-Santiago,       These respectful reflections are an extension of those flowers at her dignified resting place.        In the dawn of Rizal’s Dapitan,   she rose.                This was not the street behind that Pontifical University,   but in Rizal’s (Ateneo) exile,   in Mindanao.             Long unrecognized and/or acknowledged by so many contemporary scholars,   his blessings was in disguise while in Mindanao.              From a pristine turquoise blue ocean,   her pointed observation ruffled so many feathers,   because integrity spoke for the love of the people   she served.           She did not compromise the constitutional legacy of the nation,   and thus, her people.  Eduardo A.
