somehow, natatawa at naiinis ako sa mga tao ngayon. totoo nga, you’ll never know how much you are loved until you’re gone. gaya ngayon ng nangyari kay francis magalona. his posts on multiply usually receive about 45 comments. but when he left us, comments flooded to over 2000 last time i checked. it’s funny and irritating, riding on the popularity and the ‘bandwagon’ of people condoling with the bereaved.
kung ako lang talaga, nahihiya ako na magpost ng tribute for such a great man. una di ko siya kilalang-kilala. di din ako fan although i sang his songs. memorized ko pa din ang Mga kababayan, Kaleidoscope World, Mga Praning, etc. kaya nahihiya ako. i ‘knew’ the songs but i didn’t know the man. but there’s possibly one thing i know — that he was bigger than what people give him credit for. he is not just a singer, rapper, host, father, husband. he’s an icon. he’s a hero in his own way. he’s francis m.
