Here is a live version recorded from the Manila Cathedral from Cory’s funeral.

I was on the 2nd Grade when I suddenly noticed my parents bought lots of groceries. During those days, I really don’t know what is going on. All I know is that we have lots and lots of canned goods, 2 sacks of rice and 10 dozens of eggs carefully hoarded to our supply depot.

A few days after, I remember my grandfather telling me to watch the skies for helicopters that will be throwing a lot of money from its windows coming from the Marcos administration. Of course there is no money being pitched out but I saw a lot of helicopters that day because I waited the outside from dusk up until dawn until I gave up.

Days passed and I remember a song being played on almost all FM, AM and TV stations titled “Handog ng Pilipino sa Mundo.” And I won’t forget the lyrics since it ran through my head time and again through the entire year until I stopped thinking about the song until one day…

About 10 years after the 1986 Revolution, I remember having a date with my first girlfriend in Robinson’s Galleria. We visited the Edsa Shrine and saw an inscription out which says something like:

Masdan ang nagaganap sa aming bayan.
Nagkasama ng mahirap at mayaman.
Kapit-bisig madre, pari, at sundalo.
Naging Langit itong bahagi ng mundo.

And below there is an inscription of the writer, Jim Paredes.

After reading, it all came back to me. And from that day, I started looking for the music video of “Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo.” I remember asking for it in the APO Website and after a few days of waiting, Maestro Jim Paredes replied and said that, unfortunately there is no video available he gave me the lyrics instead.

In 2007, I ran across YouTube. I admit, when I first stumbled into YouTube, I got addicted for several weeks not remembering I am in search for the look of a long lost favorite music video. And here it is, with pleasure (Take note that young Kris Aquino is also part of the video :) ) Enjoy.

Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo
Words and Music by Jim Paredes

‘Di na ‘ko papayag mawala ka muli.
‘Di na ‘ko papayag na muli mabawi,
Ating kalayaan kay tagal natin mithi.
‘Di na papayagang mabawi muli.

Magkakapit-bisig libo-libong tao.
Kay sarap palang maging Pilipino.
Sama-sama iisa ang adhikain.
Kelan man ‘di na paalipin.

Handog ng Pilipino sa mundo,
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta’t magkaisa tayong lahat.

Masdan ang nagaganap sa aming bayan.
Nagkasama ng mahirap at mayaman.
Kapit-bisig madre, pari, at sundalo.
Naging Langit itong bahagi ng mundo.

Huwag muling payagang umiral ang dilim.
Tinig ng bawat tao’y bigyan ng pansin.
Magkakapatid lahat sa Panginoon.
Ito’y lagi nating tatandaan.

This is the definitive video that captured the mood of EDSA1 or the People Power Revolution of 1986. When this was shown on TV a few months after the revolution, people were quite touched.

However, it’s stint on TV abruptly ended after award winning director Mike De Leon pulled it out because Manoling Morato of the MTRCB had decided to censor the part where the pictures of the dictator and his wife were being slapped by the people.

A lot of EDSA veterans saw the censoring as a sign that the new dispensation was ‘watering down’ its commitment to the ideals that people fought for and was already succumbing to the call of ‘reconciliation’ by the Marcos loyalists.

We may all have our disappointments regarding EDSA. Nevertheless, here is the video which to me captures the purity and the idealism of the time , at least before the politicians started to fail us. Notice that Mike De Leon situated the EDSA1 revolution to the overall struggle of our independence which began before the American occupation.

    I’d like to add this song in commemoration

    Sang by Virna Lisa
    Words and Music by: Tito Sotto III

    Ngayon ganap ang hirap sa mundo
    Unawa ang kailangan ng tao
    Ang pagmamahal sa kapwa”y ilaan

    Isa lang ang ugat ng ating pinagmulan
    Tayong lahat ay magkalahi
    Sa unos at agos ay huwag padadala

    Panahon na (may pagasa kang matatanaw)
    Ng pagkakaisa (bagong umaga, bagong araw)
    Kahit ito (sa atin Siya”y nagmamahal)
    Ay hirap at dusa

    Magkaisa (may pagasa kang matatanaw)
    At magsama (bagong umaga, bagong araw)
    Kapit kamay (sa atin Siya”y nagmamahal)
    Sa bagong pagasa

    Ngayon may pag-asang natatanaw
    May bagong araw, bagong umaga
    Pagmamahal sa Diyos, isipin mo tuwina

    Yes….1986 Edsa revolution was a very memorable now. Because…..

    That’s how more corruption started, more bulgar!!!! I hope all who attended and make that songs of edsa revolution will realize that. Think what have you done to PHILIPPINES!!!!!

    Why can you WRITE songs now like…..


    TANGA AKO!!!!!

    I am not a loyalist….But i can’t eat “GALUNGGONG” anymore because it’s so expensive not like before.

    THINK!!!!!! …seems like CORY AQUINO helped a lot!!!! Kris Aquino looked naive in the video….very funny!!!! look at her now…not a good example!!!!!

    Nagtataka lang ako… Noong Marcos regime, hindi naman namin na feel ang hirap dahil ang pamamalakad ni Marcos noon ay pro-people…

    Bakit ng mawala si Marcos, naghirap na ng naghirap ang taong bayan… sobrang mahal na ng mga bilihin… pro-people pa ba ngayon or pro-business people lang…

    Sa tingin ko, kaya napatalsik si Marcos, dahil hirap ang mga negosyante noon na kumita ng malaki dahil sa mga polisiya ni Marcos… bawal ang price-increase, sapat na pa-sweldo sa mga mangagawang pilipino at iba pang pangkalahatang polisiya na naghahangad nga pantay-pantay at sapat na kita sa bawat pamilya… (hindi ko masabi na para sa mahihirap… dahil walang masayadong mahihirap noon, meron lang mga gustong makalamang sa kapwa – greedy)…

    After Marcos… nawala na ang just compensation, nawala ang price control, lumaganap ang corruption, nawala ang pantay-pantay na kita… naghirap-na-naghirap ang mga pilipino at yumaman-ng-yumaman ang mga namumuhunan, dumami ang karahasan, dumami ang krimen.

    Kung dati’ “for the people and by the gov’t of the people”, ngayon ay ” POOR the PEOPLE and BUY the PEOPLE…”

    The gov’t. must sacrifice more for the sake of the nation (the Poor-filipino people – majority)… sacrifice in the sense na dapat ay pro-people ang polisiya at hindi pro-business… sana 70:30, hindi sapat ang equal protection – dahil talo na ang mahihirap, eh kung 50:50 pa rin,,, Talo pa rin …
