Election Fever

“You will have trouble in the world; but courage! I have overcome the world.” (Jn 16:33)
Whatever will be the outcome of this election, I realized, I will still be doing the same things after this. I will still be teaching about love for our country and good citizenship to my students. I will still be working hard to provide for my family. I will still be performing my civic duties. I will still be making myself available to whoever needs my help and service. The outcome of this election won’t change me or stop me from doing something good for my family and country.
I refuse to believe my life is doomed in the hands of whoever will sit in office because if I do, that is just simply saying, this life that I work so hard to build is not my own doing. I refuse to let myself be carried away by talks of a gloomy future for my kid because as it is, I am doing the best I can to raise her in a way that she’ll survive and thrive in that future that everybody seem to be afraid of. Yes, current situation appears worrisome I see that, but my faith dictates that I remain hopeful, and I will. God is not finish with this country yet, and things always happen according to his plan.

GIBO for President

I am proud to share that I voted for GIBO. I like him for his unassuming brilliance and quiet ways. He clearly knows his place. That is at the forefront of change and not in the middle of a giant marketing hype/media frenzy nor at the beck and call of his political party, nor even in the shadow of his family legacy. He never once hogged the headlines of any newspapers or vied for the top post of surveys but his name still resounds in hearts of the many thousand Filipinos out there including youths who believe that he can deliver real change. He is the only candidate I know who has clear cut ideas and well thought out plans in making our country move forward. Though he might not make it to the presidency like what the “wisemen” of the surveys predicted, I am still proud of the fact that, that one chance of a vote that I casted did not go to waste because it went to (for me) the most deserving one among the candidates. Much luck to you Gibo, may you continue the good works you have started and may you make your future plans and dreams for a great Philippines happen.
