I am very proud to be a Filipino
You might ask why I would be so proud. After all, Philippines is ripe with corruption. Our political leaders do not care about the poor, only the lining of their own pockets. And dare we mention that the top leaders always come from the same 20+ families that consider the Philippines there own position with the Filipino peoples a necessary evil squatting on their land. In some ways, its sad. I guess its good to remember that we Filipino’s are in good company with despots and dictators ruling many countries and enslaving their own people.
But, I really am not hear to bash the despots that rule the Philippines. I am here to say that despite those that take advantage of us Filipino’s, we are still proud, still vibrant and we will come out on top. Good “Always” Triumpts…
You may ask at this point, how do I know this? How can I prove this? Even among your own country, your own everyday peoples you have good and bad, right? Like those that take the low road in life. Maybe its human nature, I am not sure. I do nots have the education and college psychology degrees to be able to answer those questions.
Well, thinks about your own country, your news cast, the police, the drugs, the murders, the rapes, the crimes you see on the new, on the internet every day in your country. And then…

Wow…now THAT is impressive from what is supposed to be the worst of the worst…the murders, drug dealers and the like. So Yeah…I’m Proud to be from the Philippines. I am even proud of the Prisoners at the Cebu Prison!
“The Cebu Prison was a maximum prison full of the worst of the worst…the inmates were the toughest of the toughest, 70% here are high risk inmates, meaning if they get conviceted, they get ‘life or death.” Cebu Prison was full of Gangs, Murders, Drug Dealers and Rapest…I really feel these are good guys now…”
…Byron Garcia, Warden, Cebu Prison
So let me ask you…Has your country changed a whole prison…Has your country turned a whole group of people into what you have seen on these videos?
This is why…
“I am so very proud to be a Philipino!”
