I Shall Write Blog

This blog, my blog "I Shall Write" has been frozen for some days. I had to attend to many things and just couldn't discipline myself to have some time to write.

Please take note of my captured images:

1. I saw the senior citizens, some GSIS pensioners lining up for their DELAYED pension. They were asking what is still due them, "To Ceasar what is due to Ceasar!" Of course, they've worked (or another relative)and paid for it, the government should give to the people what they've work for in their lives. The senior citizen, where one of them could be our mother or father - deserves this benefit. It was a very pitiful sight at the GSIS senior citizens desk. How could we expect they could pay their electric bills, buy their medicines, and eat three times a day? A responsible government must take care of this matter.

2. Some people could be too rude. Even professionals. GMRC which means Good Manners and Right Conduct should be taught in schools and offices FOREVER. If the character/attitude of one person fails - one could never become a good leader and worker. Of course, errors can be common, but then how far and how long should we learn about etiquette? Here, it doesn't matter whether you are rich or poor, or you belong to a certain status --- the more educated you are, the more responsible you should be; the richer you are, the more help you should give; and about LOVE and SHARING? These aren't taught, these are lived and shared for all.

3. Those in power will try to cross out names and cut heads of people they are afraid of. They will not give a damn thing to even kill or make one's life miserable. In our society, most of us judge according to wealth and connections. There are a few who would go out their way and become unpopular. And we thank GOD for their guts. May God help the people who work for the benefit of everyone, and for progress. Actually, we have to help ourselves and if we'd done this we are responsible for the majority of the poorest of the poor to uplift their lives.

4. All we can be proud of is making others happy. Yes, this is too idealistic, but then... what makes you happy? How about when all these calamities happen, and mother nature rages in anger - and your wealth could not buy you science and life? It will not last you long... there is time for everything.

5. Look at yourself, how do you see yourself naked before GOD?
