Happy 30th to my Theresian Friends
To understand Batch 81 is to understand the years we were born, mainly 1963 and 1964. In Chinese astrology, those would be the years of the Rabbit and the Dragon… yin and yang. From the assassination of JFK, the ongoing Vietnam war, to the dawn of Beatle Mania and Cassius Clay (aka Mohammed Ali), we had no choice but to be thrust into a world of change, challenge and creativity. On the local front, not only was Ferdinand Marcos the president during most of our childhood and teen years until we turned 21, Martial Law was declared during our second grade and we lived during one of the most ‘Apolitical’ climates of the country’s history.
