Surrender you MUST (Napoles Saga)

Many of us are still hoping that this catastrophic saga will end; but we just can’t seem to be convinced that it will be over soon. We are hooked; the people involved in this case felt like celebrities – having the public attention, concerning about the ratings and faces on the frontpage of every newspaper, feeling like stars and surely is, the apple of everyone’s eyes. Well, in fact, this is true to life and not some kind of fiction.

While we can’t get our money back, we keep on spending more. Spending more for their health care, security services, hearings/trials, everything that they need and yet we can’t get the truth. Shame that these politicians are on their positions doing nothing but spending the country’s money for their own good, yet they are given consideration on everything.

They bought properties – house and lot, vehicles, and other personal stuff while many of us Filipinos are lying on the streets, still recovering from the typhoon that hit us, lucky to eat one meal a day and dying to have something to put on their plates whenever there’s an occasion.

I believe that the Filipinos are hardworkers and somehow it just takes a good leader/s to bring out their real potentials. As we see our country and our government at the present, achieving it is not clear yet and the possibility of it happening is still blurred, it won’t be achieved, not very soon.

Filipinos are not losing hope yett and still clinging to the idea that everything is going to change, everything is going to be just fine and everything is going to be at their proper places.

It saddens and pisses the whole country having issues like Pork Barrel Scam. It’s hard to believe a certain witness or a mastermind if he or she is telling the truth because we are losing trust in people and we are starting to give up on them; but no, somehow we refuse, there is still hope. The truth can still prevail.

How we wish it’s all that easy. How we wish everything will be alright in a snap of our fingers. Let the unjust and the plunderers pay for their debts and let the mastermind be imprisoned. Surrender you MUST for there’s still hope for your souls and for the humankind.
