.....Last Friday (December 5, 2008) seems to be a blessing for me. A blessing in the sense that I was able to exercise my potential as a true citizen of this country. It started early in the afternoon were the school has this annual gift giving ceremony for the old men and women of our society. I participated there and I really enjoyed seeing those people dancing and singing. I witnessed the joys on their faces giving us a projection that they were really glad. The event ended up with, of course, the usual gift giving participated by the entire school community (both students and employees).
.....After the event, we rushed toward University of Makati for the GK1MB. GK1MB stands for Gawad Kalinga Isang Milyong Bayani. In case you are not familiar of what I'm talking about, you may search on my previous posts or you may use the search engine. We had a great time there because a lot of celebrity bands and performers, also known as GK advocates, performed in front of us. Those performers both entertained and informed us about the upcoming projects of Gawad Kalinga. Of course, the event wouldn't be complete without the presence of its founder, my inspiration, Mr. Tony Meloto. He offered a great speech (it always happen) for us volunteers.
.....In conclusion, my day wouldn't be perfect and meaningful without my presence and participation for these two events. Honestly, these events remind me that I shouldn't give up on whatever advocacy that I intend to fight for no matter what obstacles will try to hinder me.
.....Let me leave this message for my readers that can relate on this post: Remember, we are all created and designed to do good for others. Don't give up easily because if you think that you have tried a lot and nothing great really happens, think again. A lot of people like you are still existing in this world trying to accomplish their mission to do good and to make a difference.
