[DAGUPAN] remnant of the old Manila-Dagupan train system
[DAGUPAN] Last remaining piece of history
[DAGUPAN] Rain, rain go away. But this train, train stays.
[DAGUPAN] the old train in front of the Dagupan Museum
This train was a helpful machinery in executing violence during the Philippine-American War. The same transported soldiers and their ammunition that could remind us of the tragic past. Yes, it could remind us the bad past but it would be better if we treat this historical remnant as a reminder to acknowledge the great, good things of history. Ignore the sad parts.
It would be best if we recognize this thing as source of inspiration and good vibes to remind us how lucky we are today that we are living a life without the violence of World War II. If this train could speak, it would tell us how many lives were sacrificed in the war. But aside from the war, there are way more happy things that this train might have witnessed not written in history. I tell it again, "past is past," but it would be great if we draw inspiration from the good things of the past to shape a blissful future. /end
