School on a Holiday

I was really irritated that we had to go to school today, May 2, 2005. Since today was Labor day and we should had been staying on our homes resting. But, NO. I had to go to school early in the morning for my CWTS orientation programme. I was also a little bit of puyat because I got home late yesterday.

I got into school with a broken spirit, sleepy body and careless attention. I was also irritated on the fact that there were no jeepneys to UP since there was no work and school for today.

I was really inspired by his talk. First he gave out stories, much like an old man, about his UP experiences which was really funny. Dati daw, bus were the ride here in UP. hehe.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHis main talk, focused mainly on governance. I learned a lot from him like how bright Apolinario Mabini really is. Before the Malolos Convention, Mabini drafted 5 constitutions but his constitutions were rejected. Mabini was then exiled to Guam because he was considered a threat on the colonial government by Arthur McArthur and William Howard Taft.

Also, he implied the importance of Mass Communication in the society. One of the key problems of our society, according to Prof. Lim, is Misused Mass Media. I am really inspired by his talk that it made me realized how big of an impact I can make as a media person. It made me think of not shifting. hehe

uy totoo talagang matalino si mabini. But what I really like about him is his ability to transcend his present situation and foresee the consequences of Aguinaldo's actions. Once he wrote Aguinaldo some months after Aguinaldo was captured I think, "Kung matagal ka nang namatay, marahil naging mas magiting kang bayani". True to form, Aguinaldo may have lived a long life--he died only in 1964--but he suffered being labeled as "the traitor who killed Bonifacio". That of course is anothr story.

Aydol talaga si Mabini. Sana lang mga presidente natin ganyan.

Di gaya ng mga ibang presidente ngayon.

pahabol: suwerte kayong mga mass comm at journ. Hawak niyo ang trabaho na direktang makapag-iimpluwensya ng tao. Use your power to remove the indolent, ignorant Filipino streotype... We'll only b healers, but you would be molders. God bless!
