Lea Salonga, The Philippine Madrigal Singers, Patricia Evangelista, Edsa 1, well known doctors and nurses working in Uncle Sam who have either been in direct and indirect contact with the big heads of the US as Clinton as well as other medical health professionals who are exemplary heroes of our nations holding key positions in medical and nursing associations in the US and even in other countries, the ordinary OFW who contribute much to our country,not to mention the moon buggy conceptualizer are just but a few of the many reasons why we can be proud of being Pinoy. We always make our mark known wherever we are. We all know how creative and intellectuals Filipinos can be. To boot, we have our morality almost intact. Let's make this our stronghold.
While the others would label us as 3rd world and rightfully so, economically, we are first and world class in terms of resilience, patience, hard work, creativity and morality. We always manage to be happy with what is little of what has become after blows and storms in our lives, don’t we? We always emerge to be made of a sterner stuff.
With what happened unfolding right in front of our very eyes in the boob tube three days ago, the staged coup attempt for the 2nd time by Senator Antonio Trillanes is a clear cry for the Arroyo government to drastically make changes. I may not be an Arroyo fanatic, not one government is perfect, but I am one with the country for economic stability and political peace.

While Senator Trillanes may have serious grievances and sentiments, let no Filipinos be apathetic! May we exercise critical thinking in times like this. He cries reforms but he hasn’t reformed in his style of uniting the Filipino people. Can someone please tell him that staging a coup is passe? "Trillanes, you cannot bring back the most honest, spontaneous ever deserved People Power Revolt in Edsa 1 that we once had. You simply can't because you are not totally honest in serving the nation. Please do not insult the Filipinos' sensibilities. We are just tired of disruptions. We sincerely believe there are better ways. What you did was grandstanding. And you put a lot of innocent civilians and foreigners at risk. You are so pathetic. The end does not justify the means."
An economy struggling to progress will always be hampered by such flimsy deeds.
Still proud to be Pinoy!
