Run for Marawi 2018

As we all know that the city of Marawi was damage because of the war against the Maute group.  Thank God, the war is over, and people are going back to their house (damaged house) and start anew with the help of the government, donations from people that wanted to help to make the city of Marawi and the people rise again.  It is not easy to those affected people, but with the help of those people with the good heart and the good heart of the President of the Philippines, I am pretty sure that Marawi will surely rise and become an improved city.

In our city, there is local radio channel that is having fun- raising, for the rehabilitation of the people of Marawi and to send humanitarian aid to the evacuees of Marawi Siege.  They call it, Run for Marawi.   It is a fun run this coming February 18, 2018.  The proceeds from this event will be for the city of Marawi and the people.  This is our chance to help our unfortunate countrymen who were affected by the war.  In our little way, we will be able to help them start anew and bring smiles to their faces with our help.  My brother, father, and niece will be supporting this event and will join the fun run to help.  I wanted to help too.  My brother will be going to the radio station one of these days to pay for the registration for the fun run.

The birth of the new identity

Xander Ford is the name that is hot news in the country lately.  I have read so many comments, good and bad about him.  I am wondering if he is a celebrity because his name is not familiar to me.  Even my nieces are talking about him, his latest transformation.  I am so curious about him so I google it online.  His real name is Marlou Arizala.  He grew up being bullied by many.  Its affected his confidence and his life.  When the opportunity knocks on him to have surgery for free, he grabbed the chance.  To him, the surgery is the only way for him to look good so that people will look at him differently and treat him good.

The surgery is successful and the new identity of Marlou has been made.  He is now the famous Xander Ford.  He has a major transformation, and I must say he looks far beyond his look before.  People, especially girls are talking about him.  Some are happy with his transformation and congratulate him but the bashers and bad comments are still there.  He is like an instant celebrity in the country.  He is the most talked person in the country lately.  He has more confidence now and faces people with the happy face.  I do hope with all the transformation, people will treat him good and accepts his decision.  The bad thing about his transformation is that he said that Marlou is dead.  Too bad, but it is his life.  Hopefully, he will not regret it all.

Made the people scared

Few days ago, a bomb exploded in Davao City, during the night market at Roxas Avenue.  It was one scary night for the people who is at the area enjoying the services, foods, affordable RTW goods, and the likes.  The supposed to be a fun and relaxing night for the people of Davao turns into a nightmare.  There are 14 died and 70 wounded.  Some are still battling  for their lives till now at the hospital.  The family of the victims are in tears and their hearts are turned into pieces.  I really do not understand why some people are doing this to hurt other people.  I wonder what satisfaction can they get from doing this kind of crime.

The bombing incident last Friday makes the people of Davao scared.  Plus there are lots of bomb threat in schools, public markets, malls, parks, and churches.  People are avoiding the crowded area to be safe, and advice to stay at home for the mean time for their safety.  The investigation of the bombing incident is on going, hopefully the police will get to the bottom of this and arrested the responsible person/s doing the crime to give justice to all the victims.  I am praying this act of terrorism will stop to achieve peace for us to live in peaceful and harmonious life.   Instead of doing harm to others, I pray that God will touch the hearts of those heartless person so that LOVE and CARE for each other will prevail. Amen!

Thank you Pope Francis

The five-day visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines was a success. Even though there was a typhoon, still the Pope gives masses in the Manila Cathedral, Tacloban City, UST ground – meeting with the youth, and in Quirino Grandstand in Luneta. The signal #2 storm warning in Tacloban did not stop the people from coming, attending the mass and welcoming the People’s Pope. Although the visit in Tacloban was a quick one due to the storm Amang, he did give an inspiring message to the Filipino people. The people in Tacloban are so blessed to be able to see Pope Francis and hearing the mass lead by His Holiness. Too bad the storm did not allow Pope Francis to stay longer in Tacloban and did not able to read/share the message he has ready for the people in Tacloban. Nevertheless, he did leave a wonderful inspiring message to the typhoon Yolanda victim back in 2013.

The country is very blessed to be visited by Pope Francis. He leaves lots of inspiring messages in the masses he has presided. I am glad that there was a live coverage on television. Even though I was not there for real, I still feel the love, blessings, and cared the Pope gives to the people. Thank you Pope Francis for visiting the country and for the wonderful messages you leave to us. Surely, it inspires and wakes us up that life is wonderful thing no matter how bad the trials are because God is always walks with us.

We shouldn’t wish bad to others

We do commit mistakes in our life and hurt others through our words without minding it. To us it is like nothing but to those who heard it especially the concern person, it is not good. It can cause misunderstanding, argument or worse. We want to take it back, but as they say the damaged is already done. These things happen to be many times in the past and I regret it after. I have learned my lesson and promised to be more careful next time. Also, I promise to myself that when I have nothing nice to say, I just keep my mouth shut.

I am saying this after what I have read on the news about the certain local newscaster’s bad wish to other country. It doesn’t sound well. Jokingly said it or not, it does not really nice to wish badly to others. We shouldn’t do that because we do not like bad things happen to us, right? We do not want others to wish us bad, right? Yes, she commits mistakes by saying it, which is why she should have been more careful because many have heard it and reacted. I do hope that this misunderstanding will be settled, and I do hope that she will learn from this. This is a perfect example for her to be more extra careful next time because she might hurt somebody’s feeling intentionally or unintentionally.
