Fruitlessly waiting for a Messiah

Tutok na tutok na naman ang mga tao kay Pacquiao. Despite the disaster happening in the Bicol region. Despite the threat of the H1N1 virus. Despite the continuous show of corruption and injustice reigning in our society.

Are we a nation of people who's waiting to be saved instead of proactively saving ourselves from the mess we are in? Meron ba tayong (reverse) Messiah complex, waiting for redemption to come from somebody else instead of coming from within us?

masyado mo naman pinapalaki. celebration lang naman dahil nanalo sya. masaya lang ang mga tao, kapatid, habang tumututok sa buhay ng isang taong napanagumpayan ang kanyang pangarap sa buhay. walang basagan ng trip, peace =)

nasabi ko ito as an observation of past Pacquiao fights. kaya naman pala na maging crime free ang Metro Manila, bakit nangyayari lang kapag may laban si Pacquiao?

pati na rin yung sa usapin ng national pride. people wait for Manny Pacquiao to fight for Filipino pride. pero kapag tayo na mismo ang hinihingan ng effort na ipagtanggol ang dangal ng bansa, we shirk from that responsibility.
