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. »

Mga Maling Yabang ng Pinoy

Likas na sa ating mga Pilipino ang maging mapagmalaki (o sige na nga, magyabang) ng mga bagay bagay na nauukol sa atin para bumida tayo sa iba. Minsan ay umaabot pa sa puntong exaggerated na ang pagkkwento para lang maging sikat tayo sa usapan kaya nga merong mga joke na “wala yan sa lolo ko” ay dahil na rin sa ganyang ugali natin.
Sa aking pagninilay nilay (o pagtanga-tanga lang pag walang magawa) aking napagtanto na tila isa ito sa dahilan kung bakit pababa ng pababa ang antas ng disiplina sa ating bansa at palala rin ng palala ang mga masasamang bagay na nagagawa ng nakababatang henerasyon ng ating bayan. Kung bakit, bigyan ko kayo ng halimbawa.
Isang madalas na pangyayari na isang nakatatanda na nagkukwento sa isang grupo ng kabataan, tipong ganito:
Nakatatanda: “Nung bata kami, naku, yung si Mang Pedring na masungit dun sa lugar namin? Nako e lagi kami hinahabol ng matandang yun. Madalas kasi e sinusungkit namin yung mga mangga niya sa likod bahay nila. Halos maubos nga yung mga bunga eh, tapos pag wala na kami mapitas eh babatuhin pa namin yung bubong ng bahay nila mang Pedring saka yung aso nila na nakatali. Nako e kandagalit yung matandang yun, habol siya sa min, may dalang pamalo. Walang magawa ang matanda, hehehe. “
Mga Bata: “wow, astig nyo po pala ah!”
Nakatatanda: “Oo naman, at di lang yun. Yung nakuha naming mangga e ibebenta namin sa palengke, yung pinagkakakitaan namin, ayun pinambibili namin ng lambanog, ang sarap! Lasing lasing kami ng barkada lagi nun, kahit pa may mga pasok pa kami sa skwela. “
Mga Bata: “ayos po pala ang trip nyo ah, e pano po pagpasok nyo sa school?”
Nakatatanda: “E di ayun, pagdating pa namin sa klase mga lasing pa, ayun suki kami sa guidance. Kilalang kilala nga kami dun eh, sawang sawa na nga sa pagmumukha namin yung guidance counselor, pero wala sila magawa. E pano, yung nanay ko eh kaibigan ng principal yun, e sila pa nga humihingi ng pasensya minsan sa min. hehehe. Ibang iba talaga kami nun, kaya yang mga ginagawa nyong kalokohan, wala pa yan. “
Mga Bata: “Wow, ang galing nyo naman!!! Idol na namin kayo!”
May kasabihan nga na ang ginagawa ng matanda kahit mali ay nagiging tama sa mata ng bata. Parang etong si manong na nasa halimbawa natin, sa kagustuhang bumida sa mga bata, sumobra sa pagkwento at pagexaggerate ng mga detalye at hindi rin niya isinaisip na yung pagkkwento niya sa mga bata, tila ba chinachallenge niya ang mga ito na gawin o lampasan pa yung nagawa niyang kalokohan. At dahil sa exaggerated nga niyang kwento, inaakala tuloy ng mga mas bata na ok lang gawin ang mga ganong bagay at puede naman pala nilang takasan yung responsibilidad sa mga maling bagay.
May listahan ako sa baba ng 7 sa mga maling yabang ng mga Pilipino na kadalasan e naipapasa pa natin sa mga bata at sa sobrang gusto nating maging bida. At dahil dito, yung mga bagay na dapat ay mali, hindi dapat gayahin at iwasan sana ng mga kabataan e tila nagiging normal na lang dahil sa maling pagyayabang natin. Eto na po ang ating list:
  1. Pagyayabang ng alak na nainom, naka ilang bote at anong kalokohan ang nagawa nung lasing sila. - Pasikatan pa talaga, meron na sasabihin na isang case naubos niya, o kaya yung sobrang tapang na alak tapos sabay sasabihing nakipagsuntukan siya sa pulis na humuli sa kanila o kaya e natulog sila sa gitna ng EDSA nung lasing na lasing na sila. Feeling nila siguro cool sila pag ganito.
  2. Petty crimes (pangungupit, paninira ng gamit, pananakit ng kapwa) – Yung mga nakupit sa nanay/tatay nila, sa tindahan ni aling Nena o kaya e sa na-nenok na gamit sa opisina. Kasali din yung mga sinirang signboard, binutas na gulong ng jeep ni mang Gustin, o kaya vandalism na nilagay sa may eskwela nila. Bidang bida nga naman sila dito, mas malala, mas panalo.
  3. Basag ulo - Dagdag pa yung pagyayabang na nakipagsuntukan sila kay ganito, tapos nagulpe nila na di man lang pumalag. Paborito din natin itong ipambida. Macho nga naman ang dating.
  4. Nakarelasyon, ginawa sa nakarelasyon – Para naman to sa mga kiss and tell. Meron sa mga babae pero mas madalas sa mga lalake. At dito mas matindi ang exaggeration. Lalo na sa mga inuman e tipong kala mo e siya na ang love/sex guru sa kwento niya. At para bang lumalabas e material na bagay na lang yung nakarelasyon niya at wala na yung dignidad ng pagkatao kung makakwento, at sa mga mas bata na nakakarinig, kala nila tuloy ay ganon ang tamang gawin.
  5. Pandaraya/Panggugulang – Pangongopya at pangongodigo nung estudyante pa, mga iba’t ibang techniques para makalusot sa mga thesis or term papers, o kaya naman e pandaraya sa trabaho para maka petiks lang. Mas grabe, mas daring, mas bida. At ikukwento pa yan sa mga mas bata na para bang nagbibigay ng “tips” sa mga dapat nilang gawin.
  6. Pagsuway sa batas – Madalas ito sa batas trapiko. Makakarinig ka ng mga nagmamalaki pa nung nakipagkarera sila nung minsan sa may c5, o kaya may tinakasan silang traffic violation at tinakbuhan yung MMDA. Basta yung mga bawal na ginawa nila, yun ang talagang proud na proud pa ang marami sa atin.
  7. Padrino at koneksyon – Talaga namang mapagmamalaki mo to pag may koneksyon ka. Malakas ka kay Mayor, Governor, Senator, Manager, Chief, General, etc. Tipong sasabihin pa na “sige pare, ako bahala sayo. Isang tawag lang natin kay bossing yan.” Ayaw na ayaw natin ng nalalamangan pero pag tayo ang nanlalamang, well, isang pagmamalaki pa yan sa karamihan.

Marami pang ibang mga “maling yabang” tayong nakikita at lahat ng yan, sa pag-aakala man natin na walang masamang epekto ay merong nagiging bunga pagtagal ng panahon lalo na sa mga sumusunod pa na henerasyon. Bilang mas nakatatanda at mas nakakaalam, inaakala nila na yung mga pinagmamalaki natin ay normal na lang at tama, at pagdating ng panahon na sila na yung nakatatanda, tinutularan na nila ito o kaya ay hinihigitan pa dahil nga naman nakakalusot naman pala sa mga ganon yung mga elders nila at syempre, para sa susunod sila naman ang bida. And the cycle continues. Ano, may mga maipagyayabang ka pa ba? Siguraduhin mo lang na ok yan, dahil kung hindi, malamang na wala yan sa lolo ko.

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.
