Inspiring Filipinos of 2013

Let me start by saying that 2013 made Philippines a country of adversities and triumphs. There were ups and downs but because of Filipinos’ resiliency and strong faith to God the ups far outweighed the downs. I made the list of my countrymen who give glory and honors to my Philippines. People who made a difference, who inspired us. I recognized them for what they have done to Philippines last year.

1. The Survivors, Rescuers, Donors. The Philippines was hit by different natural calamities like the earthquake in Bohol and Cebu on October 15, 2013 and the super typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan in Tacloban and other parts of Visayas on Nov. 8, 2013. In addition to this, the Zamboanga crisis that erupted on September 9, 2013 and the floods and landslides in Zambales last September 23, 2014. With all these, I believe that survivors has a lot of stories to tell us on how they struggle just to survive. I pity those who loss their love ones but I admired them for having a strength to move on with their lives. The survivors specially the innocent children who were traumatized by this adversity inspired me because of their courage and optimism.

2. The Overseas Filipino Workers.   They say that OFWs are the modern heroes of our  country. They are helping the economy thru dollar remittances. As one of them, I know how hard to live and work away from your family. I know their sacrifices not to mention that some of our fellow Filipinos are suffering from their employers. Not all are lucky to land a job. I  admire them for their hardships.

3. Megan Young. She is the first filipina to win this second biggest international beauty pageant. Megan was crowned in Bali, Indonesia last September 28, 2013. I remember her mom telling that Megan was the one working for them.
