On a recent trip to the post office, which I had not done for a long time, I was taken aback at the number of people doing business there. Far from how it was in the past, now you can count with your hands the volume of people making transactions with the post office personnel. How times have changed.
Our faith in God is always put to the test whenever we experience difficulties in life, we often ask God why? Why me?
I came to that point several years ago when I was at the peak of my career and love life then all of it came crumbling down at the same time. I questioned God, I asked him why? I was not a bad person as far as I know and people can attest to that. So I lost my faith, it was a dark time for me.
What is the price of progress? Judging from the photo above there is a price to be paid in this case the death of a river. Pasig River was a major trade route during the Spanish times in the Philippines but due to poor urban planning it can now be classified as a major sewage system for Metro Manila. Industrial and domestic waste coming from factories and illegal settlers along its banks are the major contributor to the slow death of the river.
Several past administration tried to revive the river but unless there is a political will to remove all those factories and illegal settlers from its banks, programs will fail.

If you are looking for the lyrics to the song, you will not find it here. If you thought that this is about a lonely man’s rant this is not it either.
See the rock in the photo, at first glance you will think what is that rock doing there all by itself but look closely and you will see the column of rocks behind it. Sometimes in life we feel that way, like it is only by your lonesome you are taking on all the problems but most likely just like in this photo all you got to do is change your focus and look closely and you will see that you are not alone.
It just differs from person to person, sometimes its your faith, your family or your friends. Just when you think you are all alone, you are not. Sometimes all you got to do is ask.
