Perhaps Shari best described our collective and individual feelings at the end of the Bloggers’ Kapihan with Among Ed last Saturday: tiring, yes… but nevertheless jampacked with so many lessons and starpower we could handle in a day.

Among Ed’s remarks were thought-provoking and it should open the eyes of everyone about the potentials of blogging for the cause of good governance. Methinks, the quest of the Pinoy blogosphere is not to find or write the best posts at any time of the day. Among Ed was looking for the expressions of hope, the expressions of young people longing for change, and the hearty dialogue that should follow. We must sweep away all sense of selfishness and encourage everyone — especially the voiceless — to find their voice.
