Personally convicting.(via swordsofreflection)
There’s an incredible chain of tropical islands in the Pacific that is sprinkled with pink, white and black sand beaches, ultra-relaxing luxury resorts, charming countrysides and villages, exotic foods and an enticing nightlife. You know it exists, but you’ve probably never thought of planning a trip there.
Dear whoever proposed and passed this incredibly idiotic bill…
I’m sorry but I cannot go mum on this one.
Apparently, law makers here in my beloved country decided to make a bill prohibiting/limiting people from taking selfies. I rarely take selfies, even less so after graduating. But this is the ultimate facepalm move I’ve seen yet.
If you have time to concern yourselves over other people’s lives, why not help those poor helpless and sickly kids that cannot afford education nor food? Help them in a way that actually counts without plastering your own faces and names on every grain of rice you feed them. Stop it. Its stupendously narcissistic. The money you spend on what you gave them came from taxes which you collected from the filipino people. And plastering your own faces all over the country is also a selfie. So right back at you.
I spent my day today participating in a medical mission. I saw how unfortunate these kids were. Barely clothed, most of them without footwear running barefoot on rocky and muddy terrain. You guys think marathoners on barefoot are hardcore? Wait till you see these kids.
Why don’t you revise faulty bills that you know needs tinkering? Have you any idea of those sickly starving kids in the street who can’t afford education? Why not WORK on bills that MATTER? Bills that will help our country and its people, and by people, I mean the greater population.
I implore you…
You were voted by the people because they TRUSTED you. They put their hopes and dreams on you as you have asked them to. They look up to you as MODEL citizens. Yet how do you actually repay them now that you are in power?
How will that Anti-Selfie Bill actually HELP the Filipino people? Have you ever thought of that? How will it help those kids in the slums?
PLEASE… THINK. PRIORITIZE.
You have a lot more problems to deal with than this meager “selfie issue” you have imposed.
A citizen who’s still hoping…
