If Yellow is for Democracy, Blogging is for Diversity

I mentioned democracy in my blog entry last Saturday, only to hear it again from SONA on Monday. I mentioned about some “imagined Lincolnian political brilliance” also last Saturday, PGMA felt like reviving the Gettysburg Address with a flair of warlike cavalry against her critics on Monday. What can I say: political games from both sides. I blogged about Tita Cory representing democracy, last night’s evening news replayed her last SONA. Hmmm.

Bear with me, there is now a field that is housing democracy in many senses: the blogosphere. A case in point is the swelling support from bloggers of different persuasions and passions, professions and locations, for the ailing Tita Cory; bloggers committing a prayer or support of their choice for Tita Cory. Thanks to Reynz of Reyna Elena who initiated this support brigade, a little compassionate switch from the ironclad that was SONA.

Definitely, many out there, in their anonynimity, have been casting their support in silence or individually, one way of saying one need not be on this list of course to proclaim one’s light from a hill. To some, committing to some prayer moments apparently is a personal task. True enough, prayer remains this way. What this brigade simply does is bring those personal commitment into a unified act, to a richer, diversified community level. Diverse as bloggers are, creatively communal they try. I have not read all the “support posts” but I like to highlight one that bids me into a deeper silence: Bluguy and his Yellow Pencil entry. Blu – I just feel thankful always for your gift of poetic depth!
