>I think it was providential that the Miss Universe pageant was the day after the hostage taking. After all the frustration and embarrassment from last night’s debacle, we got to see the triumph of the Filipino spirit. yes, it is a beauty pageant. But in the Philippines, beauty pageants are a big thing.
Venus Raj, who wasn’t even going to represent us (due to issues with regards to her citizenship) made it all the way to the top 5. It shows us that when the Filipino puts his mind to something, he can achieve so much more than is expected of him.
That’s what we need to see and take to heart within ourselves. We can do anything we put our heart and mind to. And even darkness cannot stop the light of the Filipino spirit!
Next time, answer the question better 🙂
