Boljoon, Flower Power!

wikipedia defines “flower power” as a slogan used by the American counterculture movement during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a symbol of passive resistance.

this comes to mind when we review the classic edsa revolution pictures where nuns, children and civilians offered flowers to the soldiers who tried to remain impassive in the face of a peaceful revolution symbolized by a bunch of flowers.

this was the same exact thought when i saw the garden of flowers growing wild and abundantly inside the ancient cemetery of boljoon church. children played hide and seek in the graveyard, a rather interesting juxtaposition of youth and death in a place that held the secret of the dead in colorful palates of reds, greens and yellows.

The dead posed no resistance and passively tolerated the boisterous noise of the youth running around. (PeskyPanda says, “to be young and carefree…”) flower power indeed.

the opinions expressed by the pandas is neither an endorsement or an official review of a place, establishment or service. the Pandas are just very opinionated.
