A Thousand Heroes, A Million Villains

Everyday, Filipino heroes are reduced little by little. The old heroes we used to look up to are gone. People in our country nowadays aren't like the old heroes, Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, and Marcelo Del Pilar. Most of them are the COMPLETE opposites. Out of the three hundred and sixty five days in a year, millions of people in the Philippines each day become someone who is far from a hero - a villain. Robberies, car accidents, and hostages are only the very few things that always happen in the Philippines. Our country is out of heroes. Even the people who lead our country are turning to the dark side. Sometimes, I just wish that the old heroes we study about in Araling Panlipunan (History) were still alive. I'm sure that the Philippines wouldn't be as rowdy as it is like now.

     It may seem impossible, but we can bring back the old heros we know. There are still taxi drivers, who save time by driving you to work. There are the policemen, who do their best in catching the bad guys. And there are the firemen who are faster than the wind in beating fire. The world isn't full of villains - a tiny piece of the world still has heroes. Just because you're a nobody doesn't mean you can't be a hero. It isn't too late. The world is out there, and I think this time, the heroes need to bring home the trophy. Now go, there's a universe waiting to be saved.
