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—
