Some secrets we keep. Some are kept from us.

November 14th, 2005

I’m no big fan of sci-fi movies but there’s this sci-fi TV series by Steven Spielberg entitled TAKEN which I followed with much interest. Unlike big and complicated sci-fi movies, TAKEN is able to present in a simple plot the phenomenon about alien abductions.

Since June this year, former COMELEC Commissioner Virgilio “Garci” Garcillano disappeared from the face of the earth. Nobody knows where he went or where he is right now. The DFA and Malacanang are silent about his disappearance. Perhaps they’re contemplating about the feasibility of taking as an alibi, the possibility of Garci as being TAKEN, abducted by aliens.

For Garci and Malacanang, as Allie Keys (played by Dakota Fanning) in TAKEN succinctly puts it, “…Your choice is not about going back to the way things were. Your choice is about hiding, or about going right to the heart of the thing that scares you.”

But wherever Garci is right now, Allie Keys, has another point for us: “Even when we know we’ll never find the answers, we have to keep on asking questions.”

    Garci’s disappearance is indeed mind-boggling where only the likes of Mr. Steven Speilberg could come up. Like a flash of lightning, he just went out of sight.

    Major Tom, even both Steven Spielberg and David Copperfield will envy the ability of our Government to make things disappear without trace; the fertilizer funds, Marcos wealth, votes, Garci, etc….
