Entry for September 04, 2008 – The Filipino People’s Contribution To The World

4 09 2008

“Tuloy po kayo”

You are most welcome…

Today I wanted to share to you my son’s first day in kindergarten.

But I decided to share this one instead…

The Filipino People’s Contribution to the World.

I know some of you may be hard pressed to come up with that. As in what in the world can the Filipino people contribute to the whole world?

Although on the other hand, some of you can also come up with a long list just from the top of your heads.

And a few can come up with this, as this video can show us quite magnificently & eloquently. And it might even make us teary eyed as well, as it will definitely bring back a lot of memories to some of you.

Many may not share in this idea, but one thing we can be sure of… during those few days in February of 1986, it did not matter, who you are, what language you speak, from what level of society you came from, many Filipino people from all walks of life came together & did this, the impossible, they came together, worked together, risked their lives together, if only for a few days & a few weeks or at most a few month after that.

All this just showed what the Filipino people can be capable of.

So just for today, let us go back in time & watch this. It was a little late for the death anniversary of Ninoy but as they say better late than never…

Warning: some of you might need a tissue box on hand.

IF you are hearing a song in the background, then click this link & play the video from there: http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-sN80JK47erZb5BZ.rjk-?cq=1&p=75

The lyrics can be seen below.

Handog Ng Pilipino Sa Mundo
Words and Music by Jim Paredes
‘Di na ‘ko papayag mawala ka muli.
‘Di na ‘ko papayag na muli mabawi,
Ating kalayaan kay tagal natin mithi.
‘Di na papayagang mabawi muli.
Magkakapit-bisig libo-libong tao.
Kay sarap palang maging Pilipino.
Sama-sama iisa ang adhikain.
Kelan man ‘di na paalipin.
Handog ng Pilipino sa mundo,
Mapayapang paraang pagbabago.
Katotohanan, kalayaan, katarungan
Ay kayang makamit na walang dahas.
Basta’t magkaisa tayong lahat.
Masdan ang nagaganap sa aming bayan.
Nagkasama ng mahirap at mayaman.
Kapit-bisig madre, pari, at sundalo.
Naging Langit itong bahagi ng mundo.
Huwag muling payagang umiral ang dilim.
Tinig ng bawat tao’y bigyan ng pansin.
Magkakapatid lahat sa Panginoon.
Ito’y lagi nating tatandaan.
