I wrote in her blog Literally Yours: “Our authors help give expression to the soul and aspirations of the FilAm community.

Labor Day tremors and jitters – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

The national police has been ordered to be in full alert. The military is on standby. No, we are not just watching the movements of vessels from China in our western front, or keeping vigil at our southern borders. We are keeping watch at some expected tremors in the labor front. Intelligence reports indicate that a large alliance of progressive labor groups is going to mount a massive concerted action on Labor Day. And if the leftist infiltrators are going to do their job, they will most probably penetrate the demonstrations and rallies, and then plant some molotovs here and there, thereby posing a grave and imminent danger to public safety.

The pages of history of Labor Day celebrations here and all over the world are filled with the blood of trade union leaders and policemen who died in pursuit of their respective aspirations, depending on

Mahirap magbalatkayong masaya,
Lalo na’t hindi ka kapiling sinta;
Sa tuwing gabing nag-iisa,
Mga yakap mo’t paglalambing ang nasa isip sa tuwina.

Pilitin ko mang ipikit itong aking mga mata,
Sa diwa ko’y laging nariyan ka;
Alam mo bang miss na miss na kita?
At palaging laman ng panaginip sa tuwina.
