Who would’ve expected such a huge turnout of dedicated fans and lovers of the Kaleidescope man? Who on his last days on earth would wear the Philippine Flag at his back? Who would praise God and Jesus on his last moments on earth? Who would cause a lot of inspiration to the Filipinos that most politicians would dream of? One such man is Francis Magalona. The First man to rap about his love for country has caused a revival of nationalism in the Philippines. If only his spirit and legacy would permeate through all those in power sa Pinas?, there would still be hope for the Philippines. What I pray is more people would rise up to live and die for their country like Francis M…..
An excerpt from FrancisM’s blog in his Multiply site:
“Today, September 25th, 2008 is the day I learned that Cancer isn’t all about death.
It’s about LIFE. And today I celebrate and embrace that life.
“Today was a day of reckoning. I went to my doctor at her clinic, and from the smile on her face as she entered the room, I knew The Lord, Jesus Christ gave me a reprieve.
I knew that someone, somewhere made a prayer, and continues to pray for me, my family and my recovery.
“And Jesus heard it.
“I am a sinner, and I will continue to sin, for I am just a man. But the Saviour has forgiven me and will continue to forgive me.
This God who became man spilled His blood for me during my 36 days in the hospital. And even before that He suffered, and today He spilled some more of His blood, for me to get the good news.
“This is the only thing I can do, to write about His goodness; amidst this badness I am going thru..
“Whoever reads this, whether you’re my friend, fan, family or foe, it doesn’t matter. Much love and respect to all of you, THE TRUE HEROES. YOUR WORDS ARE MY STRENGTH.”
