Challenging walk up, beautiful locale
Cons: Horses and Hawkers
With the current crises the country experiences, it can't be denied
that all the people are suffering. The continuous falling of the
peso value, the skyrocketing price of gasoline, the continuing struggle
in Mindanao and fare price hike has affected millions and millions
of Filipinos, including me. But what makes me proud, even for a
moment, is that Filipinos continue to struggle, hoping that in time
everything will be all right. They learn to minimize, to save to
survive for a day. ANd amidst of this all, they can still manage
to paste a smile, a genuine smile on their faces.
During this hard times, we still unite. In my school, Xavier University,
we launched a Share for Peace campaign for the war torn areas in
Mindanao. Even if we can afford an average life, we still contribute
thinking that a lot is more unfortunate than us. The school donated
nearly half a million pesos in 3 months!!. See what a simple donation
will do? Just helping each other, in a small simple way, can make
us overcome the problems that has been plaguing our country. To
all the investors, I ask for your cooperation and trust that our
country is still a good place to invest. To do so will make the
recovery of our country faster.
With these points given, I hope a lot of you can get something out
of this. We Filipinos still struggle to move on...and still hopes..
