When I watched the video about the “Million People March” it made me rethink. Since I moved to Davao, I have been nothing short of grateful for the kindness of the people, the rich flora and fauna, white sand beaches, low cost of living and the security. I grew up in Manila, walked the streets of Tondo, Divisoria, and University belt and boy there sure is a stark difference. Initially, I wanted to keep the mayor to ourselves, thinking that the syndicates and organized crime organizations will just plot on the mayor when he wins the presidency; but when I thought about all those who are suffering from hunger, endless traffic and practically little to no quality of life as they continue in the rat race, I couldn’t help thinking, they do need a leader who cares and puts their welfare ahead of his.
Hopefully, things turn around for the Filipino people; hopefully, the tides turn; hopefully, we have more options; hopefully we do not sell our votes to the temporary appeal of money and suffer a lifetime; hopefully, we think about our children, the world in which they will live in and hopefully have better opportunities as we place rightful leaders in our government.
