“I’ve been here for a long time, just about 28 years and I’ve seen a lot happen in those years. But I think maybe the most significant thing I’ve seen happened just last year when we returned the Bells of Balangiga to the Philippines.”

 Insurrecto by Gina Apostol. In 1901, Filipino revolutionaries in Balangiga, Samar pulled off the most successful uprising against a US colonial army since the Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho victory at the 1876 Battle of Little Bighorn. US forces retaliated with a massacre in which General Jacob Smith ordered his troops to “kill everyone over ten.” Apostol imagines the details of not the massacre but the masterminding behind the victorious uprising. She does this through the ingenious use of two current day protagonists, one a filmmaker and one a translator, who write conflicting scripts about the event. The result is a surprisingly hilarious ride that takes the reader through an experience of almost joyful colonial subversion. 
If you’re a writer, the craft of this book might just blow your mind. If you’re a reader, you’ll appreciate Apostol’s fresh voice and her ability to bring humor along with depth to such a heavy—and erased—moment in history. .

2 interesting things happened yesterday that will go down in Philippine History. the first Atlantean, Aquaman visited the Philippines, and more importantly after 117 years the US finally returned the Bells of Balangiga to Philippines. (Swipe right)

The Bells being returned is something that I along with many members of the Filipino American community have long awaited.  Many leaders of the Filipino American community have long hoped for the return of these bells, not merely because it was the property of the Philippines but what it signifies.  During the Philippine-American War, Filipinos in the town of Balangiga rang the church bells to signal the start of a surprise attack on US soldiers. About 40+ American soldiers were killed in that attack, in retaliation General Jacob Smith of the US Army ordered his men to massacre the town killing thousands of Filipinos including innocent children. it was even documented that he stated to his men "I want no prisoners. I wish you to kill and burn; the more you kill and burn, the better it will please me" after the massacre they stole the Bells as warbooty and has been in the US ever since.  Many Philippine presidents and leaders have tried to get those bells back yet the efforts have been unsuccessful until recently. The return of the bells not symbolizes the peace unity and bond between the 2 countries but more importantly a way to honor those Filipinos who fought, died and sacrificed so much for our country over a century ago.
