'Di na raw fresh sa dusang inabot… COLEEN, NAPAMURA SA PROSESO NG BOTOHAN SA 'PINAS

Ayon sa misis ni Billy Crawford na si Coleen Garcia, maaga siyang nagising at naghanda para maagang makaboto nu'ng May 9 elections.
Kuwento ni Coleen sa kanyang Instagram account kung saan ipinakita pa niya ang isang daliri na may indelible ink, “I wish I looked fresh in my selfie. I wish I could also say it took me 5 [to] 10 [minutes] to vote but [to be honest], yesterday was [sh*t],” bungad niya.
Dismayado ang first time voter na si Coleen sa naranasang proseso ng botohan.
“The frustrating part is we rarely got updates. Kawawa ‘yung mga nagbabantay. (The voting officials were pitiful) [because] even they were left in the dark. They were told at 12 noon that the SD card was being brought in from Laguna, then silence. No one was replying to them for hours [and] they were stressed [as f*ck].”
Saad pa niya, “People were slowly giving up, leaving the venue in tears [and] frustration, [and] how can you blame them?
“It’s like being worn down. Waiting is one thing, but being kept in the dark is another.”
Dumidilim na raw kaya nagpasya na siyang umuwi dahil kailangan na niyang i-breastfeed ang anak.
“I can’t explain the feeling but it was so heavy. I left with my head hanging low, feeling not only frustrated but also defeated [and] that’s just me. I could only imagine all the others who stayed until God knows what time."
Despite sa aberyang pinagdaanan, happy si Coleen dahil nakaboto na siya.
Huling sabi niya, “All I can say now is, yes, we are slowly waking up. Yes, we are slowly trying to reclaim our power [and] restore peace [and] justice but sometimes it feels like there are things far bigger than us that we can’t just control.
“It may not take one day, one year, one election or even one presidency but I urge you all to continue to fight for us.
“It will take continuous effort, continuous change and we will get there.”
Sa mga sinabi ni Coleen, masasabing Kakampink supporter siya.
Pero sana, 'wag muna nating husgahan ang bagong uupong presidente ng Pilipinas.
Hindi pa nga siya naipoproklama, pero kung makabengga ang mga hindi pabor sa kanya ay pinangungunahan agad siya.
Para po sa kaalaman ng lahat, ang tao ang bumoto kay BBM.
At 'di po ba may kasabihan tayo "Ang kasalanan ni Juan ay hindi kasalanan ni Marya?"
Bigyan natin ng pagkakataon na maipakita ni BBM ang sinasabi niyang unity na nawala na sa mga Pilipino.
