I have a dream.
I want to build each barangay a day care center where people from that area can bring their children, ages 3 and below, to. There will be an educated and well paid preschool teacher who will conduct activities, initially half-day, to ensure that the children from that area learn something worthwhile.
Someone sent me the link to this video. I realize that more and more Pinoys are realizing that if we don’t help ourselves, no one will. And I agree.
This video shows us how every little thing helps.
When Ninoy Aquino died in (when was that again?), I remember I was at my grandparents’ house. I was 12? 13? years old and didn’t know any other president except Marcos.
I sat at their table writing to my then penpal from the US when a newsflash about a guy who got shot at the airport. I recall my parents’ and grandparents’ reactions were of total shock. I suppose sort of like the reactions the Americans had when the planes hit the World Trade Center in 2001.
Got this from my inbox yesterday. A lot of us are tired, and wanting a change for the better…but we’re not the activist types. So this might interest you—

Two simple words that can alter feelings in a certain situation.
Two words that my parents taught us to say when we’re given something.
Two words S and I are teaching our kids to say when they receive something.
Two words that we sometimes don’t hear anymore.
So K was in the bathroom while I was changing shirts.
He looks at me and says—
Lookee here—my friend D, who makes soaps by hand, is making LATCH one of her beneficiaries!!
I bought a couple of bars from her—Mint Fantasia and Cinnamon Spice—a few months back. I use the mint bar for showers while the cinnamon spice to wash my face. Both bars are terrific! I love the scent of the cinnamon bar. Reminds me of those cinnamon rolls my mom used to bake when we were kids. Nice and spicy, it gives my face a nice fresh tingly feel.
And with the hot weather these days, the mint fantasia is a fantastic cooler! It makes my skin feel cool because (I’m guessing) of the mint extracts that she used. Saraaaap!
Mostly, I am looking forward to THIS.

I was invited by my OBGYN, Annette Poblete (I love her, she is so calm and patient!!!), to CSMC’s Breastfeeding Month Celebration as a member of LATCH.
It was great hearing what the plans of CSMC were. And, how far along they’ve come.
