I have never been interested by action movies and not even slightly inspired by Manny Pacquiao's winning worlwide boxing titles, as I believe that a nation's pride should not be based on one man's punching agonies for whatever reasons .... but this one really moved me and had me wanting for more !!!!
As inspired by entry of Teng "My New Idol", and Mel's "For the Love of Sara", I am expressing my opinion on the recent mayoral incident in Davao City, mainly because I am from that city and know a little bit about the Dutertes.
Watching the youtube video and reading some of the news, it is very clear that the Mayor only acted within her very best intentions - and that is for the powerless poor people in the city. She was clearly outraged and showed her anger without fear !!! Just like a mother to an errant child or (pardon me for mentioning this ..) like Jesus when he showed his anger in the synagogue.In fact punching the sheriff should be seen as endearing action and much better than straight sacking him off his job.
Now I would love to have a leader like that.... Everyone would have their own opinions but I think honesty is the best policy and I think she was just honest in expressing her feelings and emotions. That is a mark of an impassioned leader !!!
For sure this will be politicized to the highest level and used against her, but a national hero is already there in the making !!!watch it here... :) http://youtu.be/Hxr_mc829xY
