One story about this boy who lives in Cagayan near the area where Sendong , the typhoon that took the lives of many due to landslides and floods. His small village was not hardly hit but it destroyed his only way to get to school - rope attached from one rock to another above the river. Built by his grandfather, this rope has a wooden cable car where he can sit and pull to cross the river.
SO WHAT DID HE DO?? HE SWAM. After swimming for about 45 minutes, it will take him about 2 hours to walk up to mountains to reach the only school in his village. Unbelievable! ( how often do our kids whine because they didn't want to go to school?)
Friends, I am simply sending a message to all of us how blessed we are. We feel stress because we are not able to keep up with life or (the Joneses). These stories and images changed my life, how I live it. Although I will never meet this boy ever in my life, these images I will never forget.
Thank you for stopping by,
On behalf of the F.L.A.G team
