Aside from being inspired to attend my Catholic Worship class because of my seat mate, my prof let us watch a video documentary that really touched my life. Masakit makakita ng mga batang parang walang direksyon ang buhay. And I am thankful na despite of the financial challenge in the family, I still hold on to what is best for me which I think guided me to where am I right now. But behind it, sympathy is always there to those who didn’t make it and those who seem to not make it.
It is obvious that the case of poverty is at its extremes. Bakit may mga taong sobrang hirap gayung may mga taong sobrang yaman? Hindi natin masasabing dahil sa mahirap rin ang Pilipinas dahil kung ganun bakit may mga taong nakakapagspend ng pera in a worthless things like bumili ng mamahaling pagkain ng aso, o kaya nama’y damit ng pusa.
Do not also put the blame on them dahil kung just and humane talaga ang isang society, why the government is setting them aside. I mean, alam kong kumikilos naman ang mga nakaupo sa pwesto pero bakit in the worst and sluggish way. That would only mean they really don’t care to them!
I am not making judgment, only presumption based on observation. They are supposed to be public servants of the people. Remember democracy is governed by laws and not by the people. I was reading the Philippine Constitution yesterday and it says there, “Elected politicians are the servant of the people, not their masters!” (somewhat like that). Pero kung umasta ang mga mokong na ‘to akala mo pag-aari ang Pinas. Kung makadala ng body guards and convoy kala mo VIP guest in an international conference.
Empathy, and not sympathy, is what they need. Wala namang magagawa ang awa sa kahit na sino e. Kaya kahit naaawa ako there is still this urge in me na tumulong sa tao. Kung hindi kaya ng mga mokong na pulitiko, bakit hindi natin gawin? How? First, patayin ang mga baliw na pulitiko. HAHAHA. Joke lang. That’s so mean. Anyway, the fact is we are holding the real power of democracy. Kung matututo lang talagang gamitin ‘to ng mga tao, I am sure the sixth sense will get by poverty. ABSENSE (absence)!
