Last Saturday's crowning finale showed our ugly side when what was supposed to be good- natured rivalry and competition turned into a display of rude, disrespectful and uncivilized manners unbecoming of a Boholano.
How can we make up for our booing to an innocent 16 year old whose fault is to give her best to a city that is hungry for its Miss Bohol crown which has eluded its representatives for the last six years?
Every pageant would always have victors and also- rans (another term for those don't make it). I wonder if the bashers & bitter gourds would be singing a different tune had their bets made it.
Let us be happy for the winners. Eda may not be the prettiest nor the smartest but the stars were all aligned in her favor that night. Simply put, she was destined to win the crown.

Shame on us Boholanos for disrespecting & mocking our symbol of the quintessential Boholana
