At the height of the Typhoon Yolanda disaster, no Filipino will be thinking anymore that the Mayor of Tacloban is Romualdez, the maiden surname of former first lady Imelda Marcos and the President is Aquino, surname of the late President Cory Aquino and her son who is the current president. Although it’s unbelievable that this statement was uttered in the disaster debriefing. Read about this statement by Mar Roxas that exhibits his poor taste:
Mar Roxas’ justification why he said that poor statement is even more devious. His sarcasm when telling the media that the mayor may not have a clear mind anymore because of the intensity of the damages – added to his already deteriorating image. He sounds like a gossiping sissy in a beauty parlor. Wondering if the rumor is true!

Nelson Mandela who passed away recently at 95 years old had lived long full years despite spending 30 years in prison. He has done exceptional things for Obama to call him the last great liberator of the 20th century. Many if not all of his achievements were geared towards fighting for human rights without violence.

It is really true that people are still persecuted for the wrong reasons – their love choice, the way they are, their religion and who they voted for. These are proofs that we are still far away from a civilized world. Civilized in the sense that we know the priorities in life – which is to love our neighbors and care for the welfare of others. Know the true meaning of your existence and when that happens, the sacrifices of democratic icons like Nelson Mandela will be justified.
A grand Christmas celebration in the community where you live might not be desirable when there’s hardships in many parts of the world – but taking some time during the holiday to gather together and join efforts in organizing one simple event will help a lot in building relationships. Take the case of this model community who have done lots of successful community outreach projects – just because, members sit down and talk as often as they could:
The Bridgewater Community Christmas is a community-building initiative that aims to bring people together from all walks to share joy, company and food on Christmas Day. This volunteer-run event aims to have this meal be accessible to all, and to celebrate this festive occasion as a community.
It’s understandable that you want to be with your closest of kin during Christmas Eve and even on Christmas Day – but any day could be Christmas when your neighbors help out in doing party chores to have that once a year memorable event. Go out of your way and remind everybody that this should not be missed out. After all, great moments matter!
The media is sometimes blamed for misleading information – but in the Philippines, the media is a source of hope, compassion and strength for the victims – especially during the recent devastation of Yolanda. When it was true that the term “Storm Surge” did not quite make an impact, it was because – nobody knew exactly what it was. As you can see from stories after the typhoon that many journalists went where the eye of the typhoon was going, just to cover the story. Little do they know that they can lose their lives. Read this:
It may be money, power or passion driving these brave journalists into chasing disasters – but one thing is for sure: that many media people would go beyond their duty just to help out in time of need. Let’s remember that they have families too and would not risk their existence just for worldly benefits. It must be some kind of adrenalin rush
coming from the heart!
Modern living does not support having pets around. People in apartments, condominiums and townhouses only have very limited spaces – and often, no open area like a lawn where pets can stroll. This is why dog parks existed but still, not a good idea. Read this:

It’s irresponsible driving a pet away to your neighbors when it becomes a hazard already to your own family. The best thing to do is call the nearest animal welfare center in your area and donate your unwanted pet to them. Here, your pet can have the chance to be rehabilitated and be adopted by other pet owners. Instead of letting them stray and get impounded for euthanasia.
