Death is not the end

by San Agustin de Hipona
(Translation from Spanish text to English text)
by Rodolfo A. Arizala
Santiago, Chile 24 June 2015

Death is nothing; simply I have entered the other room.
I am what I am, you are what you are.
What we are, to others we continue to be.

Give me the name what has always given me. Speak of me what you have always done. Do not speak in different tone of voice.

Do not be solemn and sad.

Continue laughing what has made us laughed together. Pray, smile, think of me.

That my name be uttered as what always you have done, without emphasis of any kind, without any tint of shadow.

Life is what has always been. The thread of life has not been broken.
Why should I be out of your mind, simply because I am out of your sight?

I wait for you; I am not far away, I am on the other side of the road.
Do you see? Everything is fine?

Do not weep if you love me. If you will know the gift of the Lord and what is Heaven! If you would hear the song of the Angels and see me amidst them. If you would see with your own eyes the horizons, the eternal meadows and the new paths I walk on. If for a moment you could contemplate as I do the beauty before me, all other beauties would pale in comparison.

Believe me: When death comes to break your ties which have chained me, and when one day which the Lord has appointed and designated, your soul will come to this Heaven in which you have preceded mine, on said day you will see again whom you have loved and who always will love you, and will find his heart with all its tenderness and purity.

You will see me again but transfigured and happy, no longer waiting for death, but walking forward with you on new paths of Light of Life, drinking with full satisfaction before the feet of the Lord the nectar with which nobody will never be thirsty again. End.

Many years of togetherness
And happy pretty memories
Love each other, characterize
Our married life, till your demise
Recapture beautiful moments
Emancipating my sadness
This date of your day natalis
Orpheus lyre play sweet melodies.

The Fall of Bataan: Day of Valor or Celebration of our Defeat?

By Rudy A. Arizala
09 April 2015

Seventy-three years ago today, we heard the Voice of Freedom announced:

"Bataan has fallen: The Philippine-American troops on the war-ravaged and blood-stained peninsula have laid down their arms. With heads bloody and unbowed, they have yielded to the superior force and numbers of the enemy . . .Bataan has fallen, but the spirit that made it stand - a beacon to all the liberty-loving peoples of the world - cannot fail."

What followed the “Fall of Bataan” was worse than defeat itself. The “Death March”, where seventy thousand Filipinos and eleven thousand American soldiers were herded like cattles at Mariveles airfield in Bataan, and then forced to hike at gun-point to San Fernando, Pampanga, some 120 kilometers away. From San Fernando, those weak, sickly and hungry prisoners of war were brought to Capas, Tarlac by railway packed like sardines and then forced to walk again the final thirteen kilometers to their destination - Camp O’Donnel. From these, another fifty thousand died of torture, hunger and disease at the concentration camp.

The Fall of Bataan has been declared “Day of Valor” (Araw nag Kagitingan). And since then we have been celebrating it.

One may wonder why we celebrate the “Fall of Bataan” and the “Death March” leading some observers to say, we, Filipinos, are fond of celebrating our defeat and misfortune.

Perhaps, this is better answered or explained by the perceptive analysis of one of our top veteran diplomats, the late Ambassador Leon Ma. Guerrero, when he said:

“We may honor the fighters who, in the hills and cellars, serve

their country with the strength of their arms and the resourcefulness

of ther intelligence. . .But we reserve our highest homage and

deepest love for the Christ-like victims whose mission is to consum-

mate by their tragic failure the redemption of our nation.”

Ode to Easter Sunday

by rudy a. arizala
Santiago, Chile 05 April 2015

Emancipation from all sins
Attained after Christ’s crucifixion
Sunday of Resurrection came
Triumph of light over darkness
Eternal love and tolerance
Renewed essence day of Easter.
Songs of love heard after silence
Under bright sun welcome new life
Never again prevail darkness
Due to mankind mortal sins
Awake from sleep of despair
Yearn for eternal life attained!

Ode to Lee Kuan Yew

by Rudy A. Arizala
23 March 2015

Leader of Singaporean progress
Economic empires and regimes
Elevating his people’s dreams
Kingdoms and social status
Under iron-clad rigid rules
Adored by most democracies
Never faltered in his steps
Yearning Elysian isles paradise
Even thru Asian imperial hands
We, nevertheless, mourn his demise!

What is the "Ides of March?"

(Research by Rudy A. Arizala)

The Ides of March (Latin: Idus Martii or Idus Martiae) is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances, and became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. The death of Caesar made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history, as one of the events that marked the transition from the historical period known as the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire.[1]
(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Because of the assassination and the soothsayer's exchange with Julius Caesar about the dangers he faced in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar tragedy, the "Ides of March" now signifies a fateful day. “Beware of the Ides of March!

Before the historical assassination of Julius Caesar, the Ides of March was:

• A division of the calendar based on the phases of the moon.

• In some months, the Ides is on the 15th, and in others, it is the 13th. It's supposed to be on the day of the full moon. [See Roman Calendar.] • March's Ides marked the beginning of the consular year: The two annually-elected Roman consuls took office on the Ides from c. 220 B.C. to 153. From 153 B.C. the consuls began to take office on the Kalends of January (what we call New Year's Day).

These days we no longer observe the Roman Calendar but the Gregorian Calendar of Pope Gregory. So, it could be said there is no longer Ides of March.

Be that as it may, if something happen unusual within the first two weeks of next month -March, let it not be said, you have not been reminded what the "Ides of March" means and have been warned: "Beware of the ides of March".
