The 12 Little Things We Can Do For Our Country

 
by Atty. Alexander Lacson
 

1st  : Follow traffic rules. Follow the law
 
  • Traffic rules are the most basic of our country’s laws. If we learn to follow them, it could be the lowest form of national discipline we can develop as a people. A culture of discipline is crucial to our destiny as a nation.
  • Whenever we follow traffic rules, we show our love for our neighbor, our love for the Filipino.

2nd  : Always ask for an official receipt
 
  • Asking for ORs leads to higher tax collections, which means more funds for our government, which could strengthen our economy and lead us to progress.
  • Whenever we help our government in helping our people, we show our love for our neighbor.

3rd  : Don’t buy smuggled goods. Buy Local. Buy Filipino
 
  • Our money should support our economy, not the economy of other countries. Buying Pilipino means supporting the Filipino.
  • Whenever we support one another as Filipinos, we show our love for our neighbors.

4th  : Speak positively about us and our country
 
  • Every Filipino is an ambassador of our country. Each one of us, wherever we maybe, is a salesman of our country.
  • Whenever we speak positively of our people, we show our love for our neighbors.

5th  : Respect your traffic officer, policeman & other public servants
    
  • Respect honors and dignifies a man. It compels him to do his job right.
  • There is love of neighbor whenever we respect those in authority.

6th  : Throw your garbage properly. Segregate. Recycle. Conserve
 
  • Philippines is the country given to us as a people. It is the birthplace of our race. It is the home of the Filipino. We should keep it beautiful.
  • When we keep our environment and our country clean, we show our love for our people.

7th  : Support your Church
 
  • When we help our church, we help our Creator in His works on earth.
  • Whenever we help our church, we show love for our neighbor.

8th  : During elections, do your solemn duty
 
  • When we fight for our votes, we fight for our right to make our own destiny, as a people and as a nation.
  • There is love of neighbor when we elect good leaders for our country and people.

9th  : Pay your employees well
 
  • A company must bring prosperity not only to its owners but also to its employees. Blessings must be shared. It builds families. It builds our nation.
  • There is love of neighbor when we value and pay our employees appropriately.

10th  : Pay your taxes
 
  • Taxes are the lifeblood of our government. It is what builds our public schools, hospitals and roads. It is what pays our teachers, soldiers and   other public servants.
  • There is love of neighbor whenever we pay our taxes properly so our government can help more people.

11th  : Adopt a scholar or a poor child
 
  • Investing on our youth is investing on our country’s future. Every family who can afford, should adopt one poor child as a scholar.
  • There is love of neighbor whenever we help a child get an education.

12th  : Be a good parent. Teach your kids to love our country
 
  • If we start planting seeds of patriotism in the hearts and minds of our youth today, they would become giant patriots of our country someday.
  • There is love of neighbor whenever we teach and raise our children as patriots, by loving our country through loving our people.
 
« Love of neighbor, God’s Second Highest Commandment, is contained in each of these 12 Little Things. »

SAFE STEPS is a pan-Asian public service initiative aimed at providing people with key educational messages on how to prepare for natural disasters. Asia Pacific is the region that is most prone to and affected by natural disasters worldwide. In the past four decades, 75% of the world’s natural disasters took place in Asia Pacific, resulting in a loss of up to two million lives.

SAFE STEPS has been developed in partnership between Prudence Foundation and National Geographic Channel with international boxing champion and humanitarian Manny Pacquiao as the programme ambassador. It is a long-term disaster preparedness educational programme with multiple platforms that can be shared through community-based activities. Core to the programme is a series of 60 second education videos providing key life-saving information for different disasters. These advisory tips have been approved by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.

SAFE STEPS underscores Prudence Foundation’s long-term focus on disaster preparedness and relief and demonstrates its steadfast commitment to serving the needs of communities throughout the region.

Hon. Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Pacquiao is the natural choice to be the SAFE STEPS ambassador. He is not only a survivor who understands the impact of natural disasters first hand, but is also an icon and humanitarian.

Manny Pacquiao is an internationally recognised Filipino boxer. The first and only eight-division world champion, he was hailed multiple times as the Fighter of the Decade by various organisations. A Representative of the Lone District of Sarangani in the 16th Congress of the Philippines,

Pacquiao is the founder of the Pacquiao Partnership for the Poor Inc., which provides health, education and livelihood assistance to marginalised communities and individuals. Also the Habitat Hero Ambassador for Habitat for Humanity that supports poverty alleviation through building homes and communities, he is a staunch advocate of the movement against human trafficking.

He is currently a member of various committees in the House of Representatives, including the Committee on Public Order and Safety, Committee on Youth and Sports and the Committee on Overseas Workers Affairs where he is the Senior Vice Chairperson.

“I am happy to partner with Prudence Foundation and National Geographic Channel on SAFE STEPS, and honoured to be its ambassador. As soon as the programme was presented to me, I wanted to do it, no question. Having personally witnessed the devastation by typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban last November, I strongly believe this is an important campaign that can help save lives, not just in the Philippines but the whole of Asia. With these tips, we all can be survivors!”

Maging masaya ka sa tagumpay ng iba, imbes na mainggit ka, gawin mo itong inspirasyon, para maging katulad ka nila.

Imagination is the sport that lights the fire of enthusiasm which is the prime characteristic of the going places attitude.

"We need a multiplicity of visions, dreams and prophecies - images of potential tomorrows." - Alvin Tofler

"Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you're going to live your life." - Joel Osteen

Time should never be spent, it should be invested - time invested at the workplace is to improve productivity - doing more in less hours.

Kapag ang bahagi ng puso mo ay may inggit, hindi nakapagtatakang ang lalabas sa bibig mo ay puro panlalait.
