Good Morning?

You wake up every morning with a renewed sense of hope. Bagong araw, bagong umaga. I will do my best today, you say. I will be kind to everyone, you say. I will stand against death penalty because it is inhuman and anti-poor. I will not condone extra-judicial killings because "who watches the watchmen". And then you start to connect with the world thru that silly smart phone, read about today's news and then, just then, fall into the trap of reading the comments section of an article about another drug-related killing spree.

EH PARANG HINDI NAMAN MAMIMISS NG UNIVERSE YUNG MGA IBA DITO KUNG SAKALING MABIKTIMA SILA NG EJK. AT FRANKLY AH KUNG IPAPATAW ANG DEATH PENALTY SA MGA NAGKAKASALA SA PAGIGING MAKASARILING MANGMANG EH HINDI RIN NAMAN KAWALAN. AT BAKIT KO BA PINASASAKIT YUNG PUSO KO SA PAG-AALALA EH MUKANG KUNG SINO PA ANG MAS MAAARING MADAMAY EH SILA PA ANG TUWANG TUWA. 

But at that point, you step away from it. Breathe. What did Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. say? Oh yeah. Do not let the world make you hard. Yes, that.

Good morning.

Soldier on.
