[VIDEO]: Pinky Webb of CNN Philippines summarizes the Anti-Bullying book of Senator Nancy Binay by saying: Do not do to others what you do not want others to do unto you.
The Senator is Open to Constructive Criticism
Senator Binay cannot see any reason to feel bad on constructive criticisms. She said that for as long as they are true, those could serve as guidelines for her self improvement. Nevertheless, she does not want to tolerate cyber-bullying because of its fatal circumstances. Binay reminds viewers to think first what would others feel when bashed wrongly.
The Golden Rule
Webb summarizes Binay’s anti-cyberbullying strategies using the golden rule. Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you. She is also a contributor to Binay’s slam book on the subject who admits that she does get hurt in the midst of irresponsible criticisms. However, she chooses not to dwell with it and move forward instead.
Stand on DFA Data Fiasco
In light of the passport data breach, and to further protect the privacy of individuals, Senator Binay calls on the solicitor general to review the contracts of government’s data management providers. She urges the agency to verify the agreements with third-party software and data operators particularly those that concern the national database system.
SLE or “Lupus” Bill
The Senator files a bill in the Senate to promote public awareness and institute early detection and prevention of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) or the “Lupus” disease. “There is no cure for SLE, however, medical interventions and lifestyle changes can help control it,” she said. Binay authors Senate Bill No. 2070 known as “Comprehensive Lupus Prevention Act of 2018.” SLE or “Lupus” is a chronic auto-immune disease where the immune system attacks the body’s cells and tissue. This results to the inflammation and tissue damage in different parts of the body. It mostly affects the heart, joints, skin, lungs, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, and nervous system. Kris Aquino is currently suffering from this kind of condition.
Black is Beautiful
Online bashers are fond of calling the good Senator, charcoal. Although, most of these haters do not realize that they are criticizing the original Filipino skin. She might be referred to as such but her heart is on fire for wanting to serve the people regardless of their political affiliations. She previously filed a resolution that made the 2016 election fraud Senate inquiry possible. Bongbong Marcos is thankful to her on this issue.
