Let’s hope for the Best!
The coming of the New Year 2010 ushers a renewed hope and longing for all of us that something better will somehow unfold before us not only for our personal advancement but for our loveones, our fellow Filipinos and our country.
The bleak picture of last year’s natural and man-made catastrophes should not deter us from exploring what is in store for us in this tiny part of the universe.
The memories of the grim-faced victims of Ondoy and the other calamities that almost threaten our stature as a God-believing people, the cheap political scenarios being untangled by our national leaders, and the despicable and ruthless massacre of innocent people in Maguindanao that includes a big number of journalists that shocked the world and placed us on top of the list of the most dangerous places for media people; should solidify our determination to pursue and follow our dream.
Our dream to find the elusive cure for our social ailments, to look for the keys to our national survival and extract from somewhere the magic potion to preserve our social dignity must bear fruit if we value success in its truest essence.
Living the life we have today is not easy. As journalists with valid mission, and a dream, doing what is just and right is like pinning yourself directly at the center of a target range, where the most cruel of all people shall decide for your fate.
With this kind of risk in our midst, we have no one to turn to but to the Almighty One, our Savior and our Best Friend who galvanizes our faith in Him by reminding us always His Word’s assurance, “ If God is with us, who can be against us?”
A very enlightening New Year to all!
