CONTEST ALERT: #GlobeProjectWonderful2014 Win an IPAD Mini 2 by just answering this!
Philippines is a lovely country situated in Asia which comprises of more than 7,000 islands and 98 million and counting Filipinos. Philippines is widely known for its rich biodiversity of flora and fauna, fine sand beaches, home of active volcanoes as it belongs to the Pacific Ring of Fire, majestic natural formation and hospitality coming from it's locale.
There's a lot of things happened last year to Philippines and the Filipinos. The famous typhoon Haiyan which killed a lot in the central part of the country which literally swiped off the provinces of Leyte, Tacloban, Samar etc., Manny Pacquiao defeating Brandon Rios, earthquakes in Cebu and Davao, beauty titles in almost major international pageants and a lot more. Through the ups and down, Filipinos remain resilient and full of hope that in every challenges that they're facing, they know deep in their hearts that they can surpass anything.
I am a Filipino. I am proud of my race and I would do anything for my country. So a question comes to my mind that goes like “If there is one thing I can give to the Philippines, what is that gift?”. Hard question right? There's a lot of concerns and issues to be addressed but what will be that one gift that I would like to give to the Philippines.
After spending a lot of time thinking, I come up with an answer. I would like to give the Philippines the gift of faith. Faith not just in terms of religion but faith in everything they were dealing as nation, and as a country. Faith that everything will soon be alright and will fall into its place. Faith that the government will be less corrupt and more in service. Faith that the church will continue to lead its community to the right path with the values instilled in each and everyone. Faith that will someday, a Filipino will wake up in the midst of silence where there's no war between military groups and rebels. Faith that broken heart caused by family separation will be healed. Faith that everyone will have an access to right education. Faith that in this world full of hate, there's still love that will always prevail. Faith that in every bad things happening around, there's always a reason to find the silver lining. "Faith and action are one. You can't separate them."
How about you?
“If there is one thing YOU can give to the Philippines, what is that gift?”
