i just finished watching GMA 7's World View report entitled: "Si Barack at Si Juan." quite late though but it was worth my wait to see this report. there i just understand what the Filipino-American veterans went through after the past US governments' promises to them; the racism they went through and for how many times a bill for an equity benefit for them was not honored in the US Senate during the past governments. it's sad. now, i really hope that the lump sum for the war veterans that's included in Pres. Obama's recent signed stimulus package will really be very much beneficial to them.
i have learned a lot from the documentary report (or whatever it's called). life, wherever you go, must simply be cherished no matter what you do for a living because we can never tell what tomorrow may have in store for us. we can only hope what the government can do for us but it's important that we can also do so much for what we can do to be productive individuals. this global financial crisis might be too much for everybody to bear. but we can keep praying...it is never with a price.
