DANCING WITH THE DICTATOR

 

“People ask why I have decided to reveal the story of this part of my life only now.  It is not because of fear, lack of words, or any other reason. My experience with the late President Ferdinand Marcos is as colorful as my life has been, full of perplexity and complexity.  Writing about it today gives closure to a secret I feel should be shared with the world. Each experience we go through should be seen as building blocks to make our journey in life richer and fuller.  In the end, I found a very human person in a dictator and have learned that we live in a complex world… a world of contradictions.”

LIVING & EXPERIENCING THE REALMS OF THE UNKNOWN

 

“We live in a world of discoveries.  There are skeptics and there are believers.  We have to admit there is a world much of which we cannot explain but possibly experience.  I do not want to prove or probe into the realms of the unknown. I only want to tell my personal stories for I believe God did not create us alone but everything beyond and around us. And we yet have to understand it or accept it”

"Dancing with the Dictator is an attestation on how a woman can gracefully and sternly say no to the sweet insistence of a dictator.  You would not put it down too.  I am glad that Villanueva lived to tell her narrative that gives an intimate look at how immense power can entitle a person to simply pick up someone (and disrupt her life), and like an object, be offered as a gift to realize a monstrous project. Villanueva’s memoir has to be a movie.
