The French writer Voltaire has these words for all of us to remember: "I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend, to the death, your right to say it". With these words, every one of us by all means can express our opinion and views on issues that we believe other people should know and be aware of. But unaware sometimes that the opinion and views expressed when prolonged or when it dragged over time in the course of exchange of opposing opinions and views (be it written or otherwise) lead to endless bickering, spite, insult resulting in ill feeling. But the bright side of all of these exchanges in views and free flow of opinions are always seemingly aimed for the general good of our people and country.

However, free expression can be best exercise and has its value if it is devoted and directed instead to more fruitful and meaningful discussions of national interest that is devoid of any political tone. One national interest that deserves our time and effort is the promotion of tourism in our province of Samar which would certainly create local employment, improved standard of living, and other economic opportunities to the people in the area. A mere passing on by ‘word of mouth’ to friends, workmates and much more to foreign nationals how beautiful Samar is in itself a good deed to reckon with. There is a saying in the vernacular language that to get involved and thrive in this kind of industry is “bawi ka na bunot ka pa”.

We may not all be savvy and astute entrepreneurs, nor have substantial capital to venture into this type of business but as an ordinary good citizen we can pitch in, in our own small way even if it is just picking up litter in the street every time we are out in the streets to improve the surroundings. Time spent in this kind of citizen’s act of community help and concern proves more meaningful no matter how small, trivial and silly these may seem to others. But such action gives a good image of our province than devoting time to write issues about Burma Aid.

Guiuan airstrip served in launching warplanes towards Leyte? How could it be? Guiuan airstrip was constructed after Macarthur landed in Leyte.

Yes Suluan island was first raided to give way the battleship Armada of Macarthur to pass the strait towards Leyte, the warplanes was lunching from aircraft carriers in the Pacific. After the Leyte landing they immediately construct airfield in Guiuan as the aircraft carriers will go for another mission. Osmena and Carlos P. Romulo was with Gen. Macarthur on board a battleship from Australia not in Guiuan as their rendezvoused.

For Vic Abude and all Guiuan-ons:

For Vic - it's Manicani, an island. By the way, perhaps your name originated from "Abuda"? I think I know of one Abuda, who hails from Eastern Samar but has since been residing in Tacloban City. Your suggestions concerning a small body that will research more on Suluan's history should be heeded. It's nice.

For the rest, and Mayor Kwan's historical commission, or whatever, please provide me whatever data you may have on Suluan. I am interested on Suluan's past, especially it's setting before Magellan landed in Homonhon. My theory is that it was Suluan natives who first had a conversation with the first Spaniard to have set foot on the Philippines, or Samar which was Cibabao then. Who knows, your research data may finally show that Samar's name did not come from Samad, as wrongly put. Or, you might be able to establish that the first mass was held in Homonhon, or Suluan.

I and Ilberto Macale gathered some materials more than a decade ago and with the help of Massey Grafil, we put up a special edition of the Leyte Samar newsmagazine featuring Guiuan, its history and tourist spots. Many others in Borongan – among them, Morris Baquilod had joined us in our past campaign to "rediscover" Samar's history up to the recruitment, organization and last recorded activities of the Pulahanes and KKK among Samar's natives.

You can email me anyhing about Suluan, Homonhon, and Guiuan. Others who know anything newly discovered as would correct facts of written history should be of help. Thank you.

In Mayor Annaliz Kwan's speech on Suluan's celebration she mentioned among others that she would commission the senior citizens of the locality for what ever might come out as part of Suluan's history. I would suggest now that she must create a historical commission or committee solely for this purpose who may be able to re-construct the events prior, during and after the Suluan incident. I would suggest now that this task must be carried-out at the earliest possible time as we are running out of time.

If we do our sums now, we would have this kind of scenario; 2007 was the 63rd celebration if we look at a young Filipino guerilla who would have participated in the incident 63 years ago at the age of 20 he would be well in his early eighties. Barring any mental illness he may have at the moment he could still recall some of his companions names and hopefully some could still be alive and were present (Filipinos) during the assault and destruction of the lighthouse (yes, there was a lighthouse as per my initial research, that had been used by the Japanese soldiers assigned to send out signals for whatever military objectives that may warrant their transmission. Time is still on our side to reconstruct the history of Suluan.

My assumption based on my initial research, also suggest that McArthur had the 5th and the 13th U.S. air force attached to his command. If my assumption is right there may be some Filipinos that had served during the launching of these warplanes towards Leyte and other coastlines. Better still if there would still be around some of the workmen during the construction of the airstrip. This possibility could be explored as well.

I would appreciate if members of Mayor Kwan's historical committee once organized could contact me for coordination at the e-mail address provided.

"When people complain about their leaders, what comes to his mind is that the people deserve the leaders they elected. If they chose right and well, then they should have better leaders who are attentive to the needs of the area and the people".

Secretary Domingo said when people complain about their leaders, what comes to his mind is that the people deserve the leaders they elected. If they chose right and well, then they should have better leaders who are attentive to the needs of the area and the people.

My fellow Samarnon, read this excerpt (above) from Presidential Assistant for Eastern Visayas, Secretary Victor Domingo. In essence, he is saying, that if the official people elected turns out to be a "crooked" is O.K. and should be tolerated? And therefore, it’s O.K. for the people to suffer? What kind of mentality is this? I should not be surprise for this type of mentality is the norm among Philippines government officials.

To my fellow SAMARENYO and all traveling "Maharlika Hi-way", warm summer greetings to all nahigugma han Samar...Tuna nga Natawhan!

The caravan was indeed a noble thing that GHS did...And they (in the Gov't) heed our cry for better roads and bridges in Samar (not yet best....because of the following reason(s):

1. It is known to everyone (esp the travelers) that the quality and durability of said infrastructure are not the concern of "de lunay" construction...we must question it, for we are actually paying the cost of these billion-worth of project thru the exuberant taxes imposed on our impoverished people (EVAT, VAT...which openly go into the "pockets" of corrupt oligarchs...sanglit an mga tawo “LOWBAT NA.” I cannot find words in the english dictionary to explain to the simplest term(s) to be understood... except in waray- waray..."tama ba an lagay (ready mix) nga pondasyon han espalto...baman an iba nga parte, ginsemento man anay antes espaltohon-on?

Calling our "engineers" and all the people who are using this "MAHARLIKA HI WAY" kono to COMMENT on the ongoing rehabilitation of said national hiway. "TAMA BA INI NGA PAAGI?" The Caravan was not the end but only the beginning of our battlecry...FOR BEST ROADS AND BRIDGES TOWARDS AUTHENTIC PROGRESS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

Am calling everyone to consider this: "Is the "rehab" of Maharlika, a solution or a seed of another problem? Are they constructing roads and bridges towards socio-economic progress or are they building walls to divide people (the rich and the poor) because of the "multi-million profit" of the contracts of "FG's" at the expense of the languishing taxpayers...may the Lord absolve them (contractors and fixers) from this social iniquity...

LET US DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS...Padayon gihapon! para hin tinuod nga kauswagan han Samar! Salamat ngadaan!

My father, Jacinto Chungtuyco and Uncle Joe were the best of friends, but unfortunately they have lost contact over the years as we are living in the UK. Through the web I was able to discover that they recently were project co-ordinators of a 10-day "Medical, Surgical and Dental Mission" during January 2008 in CATARMAN, NORTHERN SAMAR area. The mission was initiated and sponsored by the Nuestra Senora de Salvacion Foundation, Provincial Government of Northern Samar.

I am desperate to make contact with the Lim family and excited at the thought that someone reading this could know of them. I would be extremely grateful to anyone that could give any information in leading me to Jose & Fe Lim.
