Thanks everyone for all of your support. And to those that agree with the Reader's remarks below, remember this was just Fiction!
No young (or old) Filipinas were hurt by my typing fingers! And no Islands were relocated! My story was proof read by my Filipina wife (a teacher) and she kept me from including any of the flying super creatures that live there. This was just a "Fig Newton" of my imagination!!!
Again, Thanks to Everyone!!!
From a Reader:
"If you want to write about a country, the first thing you need to do is read a little about it and then read some more.
This story is so full of mis-information it hurts.
The women of the Philippine during the time you are writing about were in no way as you stated.
If you found one in a remote vlliage that acted as you discribe, she would have been been branded and thrown out of the vllage.
You forgot and maybe do not know, the Philippines is and was a VERY strict Catolic country. You need to write an apology to them and rethnk this story. By the way I know I was married to a philippino was there in the early sixties. Even then it was no easy to meet any women but BAR girls. (whores)."
