Rant and Complain When You’ve Done Your Share
Ahhhh…. Election time again. Of course, political issues would be discussed and people would be comparing which candidates are better and would also highly criticize some. That’s fine. We are all entitled to our opinions. You can complain about how things are run, that’s why it’s called freedom of speech. But don’t complain if you didn’t do anything in helping our country. Usually, we are too passive by just sitting down and wishing what government can do for us. Tama ba yan? “Think not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” Though, this was said by a US past president, this should be our train of thought as well in this upcoming election. I happen to visit the onevoice website and saw how noble their intentions are. This is good. We need to help out here. You want a better country? Be a better citizen. Help out.

During Sunday’s homily, a letter from our archbishop was read and it said that we must vote for the candidate that has Conscience, Competence and Commitment. (I’m not so sure if I got the translation right as the letter was in the “deep” Visayan dialect). But I say go, vote for the candidate that has those 3 Cs. And remember, if you did not vote and if you did not help out, don’t complain.
