From the Pearl of
the Orient Seas
Life in the Philippines is
very tough. Due to hard to earn money, people prefer to work off
their homeland. By nowadays, we Filipinos suffer the way of life.
If you're a member of a broken family, you'll feel the vow behind
being rich, yet the Filipino family will still be going strong.
Strong, by means of happy-living even if it is broken; this one
of a kind family is naturally composed of children and the
parents (sometimes with other extended relative).
Well, I would describe its
heart and soul… by which unity glows and experience grows. And I,
as a member of it, see the real spirit of respect simply by the
means of love. See, whatever the distance, the sky that covers
our land still find a way to blow upon the wind and cherish its
nest. And yes, I know, our family is no different from any other
country; we all may do have things in common, yet one simple
thing separates us most, the big difference of a child raised in
the Pearl of the Orient Seas, the youth that wakes up every
morning to face all the dangers in his own homeland, his own
tradition, culture and mission… Nothing can be the same as that
for all of us. No place like this, no people like us, still
standing tall, full-erect beside yours.
