Political life

After the 1986 People Power Revolution, Duterte was appointed officer-in-charge vice mayor. In 1988, he ran for mayor and won, serving until 1998. He set a precedent by designating deputy mayors that represented the Lumad and Moro in the city government, which was later copied in other parts of the country. In 1998, because he was term-limited to run again for mayor, he ran for the House of Representatives and won as Congressman of the 1st District of Davao City. In 2001, he ran again for mayor in Davao and was again elected for his fourth term. He was reelected in 2004 and in 2007.

In 2010, he was elected vice mayor, succeeding his daughter, Sara Duterte-Carpio, who was elected as mayor. He has been offered the Interior Secretary post 4 times, by presidents Fidel V. Ramos, Joseph Ejercito Estrada, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, and Benigno S. Aquino III but rejected all of them. In April 2014, he also declined a nomination for the World Mayor Prize, given by an international body to outstanding mayors saying “he was just doing his job.” Among the other awards Duterte also refused to accept for Davao City includes the one given by the American Cancer Society and the 2010 anti-smoking award in Singapore

Wishing for a REAL CHANGE for the Philippines!

May allah be with us!

Munting Ngiti Hakbang ng Kinabukasan Pag-asa 2- A community Outreach Program 2014

Sabi nga nila ang edukasyon ay susi ng ating taumpay, lahat tayo ay nag daan sa pagkabata at nag – aral sa eskwelahan kung saan malapit lang sa ating bahay o di naman kaya ay may kalayuan.  Maswerte ang mga batang nakakapag aral, ngunit paano yung hinde? Paano yung pinagkaitan ng biyaya na ang kanilang mga magulang ay kahit anong kayod ay kulang padin para makaipon sa kanilang pag papa – aral, sakto lang sa pang araw –  araw na pagkain para sa kanilang mag anak.

Ako at ang grupo namin ay mga simpleng mamumundok lamang sa ibat – ibang parte ng lugar, kami ay madalas na nagagawi sa parte ng Rizal at Bulacan.  Dito kung saan ang madaming naninirahan at sila ay aming mga kakwentuhan habang kami ay umaakyat papunta ng Mt. Maranat sa lugar ng Norzagaray Bulacan.

Si Marvin at Rosie ay isa lamang sa mga bata na aking nakilala sa Rodriguez Rizal, kinamusta ko ang kanilang pag-aaral sinagot naman nila ako ng maayos at matyaga silang nag aaral sa araw-araw, ngunit kapag araw ng biernes ay di na sila pumapasok tinanong ko naman kung bakit, sila raw ay mag tatrabaho na lamang, para sa araw ng lunes sila naman ay may pambaon hanggang huwebes, alam ko na sa sarili ko kung ano ang kanilang mga trabaho kapag araw ng biernes sila ay mga nagbubuhat ng uling na nangagaling sa taas ng bundok o di naman kaya ay dalawang sakong uling para pantawid sa kanilang pag aaral.  Matapos naming mag-usap umalis na ang mga bata at ako naman ay napatingin sa napakalawak na kabundukan ng Sierra Madre at duon ay nagtatanong, gaano pa kaya kayo tatagal sa pakikipagbaka na wag maubos ang inyong mga kapunuan at sa kalangitan naman ako ay napatingin paano na po ang mga batang ito na sa murang edad palang ay kanila ng binubuhay ang kanilang sarili.

Naisip namen magkakaibigan na tumulong sa paraan na aming makakaya.  Eto na, pinagsama – samang pwersa ng aming kaisipan binuo namen ang aktibidades na ito para sa mga bata ng Rodriguez Rizal na sa amin ay talagang napamahal na.

Sa tulong ng mga kaibigan din na umaakyat ng kabundukan ay nagbigay ng mga pambili ng school supplies, tsinelas, tumbler, bowl, used clothes na may pambata at pang matanda na din, mga libro na inilagak sa library ng eskwelahan.

Nsa baba po nito ang mga ilang larawan na aming mga ginawa.

A Touching Story of Mang Roldan

This is Re – Blog i saw and read this touching story of (Mang) Roldan  .. and share to other people. May God Bless to all!

I am just sharing this picture of a very humble guy named ROLDAN JIMENEZ PINEDA, 63yrs old, from Kawayan, Isabela. You don’t need to read everything if you feel lazy, but all I need to ask you is pray for his safety. I am not a writer, but I will try to tell you the story. Here’s what happened: Just this windy and rainy morning, I was in my friend’s canteen. It is just beside the subdivision where I live. I was chatting with my friend’s dad about some business. This humble guy came in front caught my attention. He was not asking for money nor anything. Instead, he ordered P5 worth of rice. He cannot even look directly because he feels so shy.He said, “Maaari po bang bumili ng limang pisong kanin?” His hair is so wet that’s why he covered it with a small towel. His clothes are kinda wet too. When I heard his shaking voice, I can feel that he is tired, cold, and starving.  He has a green backpack and a sack with old boxes and plastic bottles. I suddenly felt sorry about him, that my heart was telling me that I need to do something. Instead of me just sitting on my chair, I decided to stand up and tried talking to him. I asked him if that small amount of rice would satisfy him. He said that he was planning to eat some of it and save some, then continue walking til he reach Nueva Ecija which is more than a hundred miles I think. His destination would be Kawayan, Isabela, where he lives. He asked if he can fill his bottle with some water. I said, sure. While I was putting water in his used old bottle, I told him to order some more food so he can eat. Told him not to worry because I will pay it for him. Mang Roldan never asks for money. He earns his own by selling bottles at the junk shops. His eyes turned red, while he was trying to hold his tears. He said that he can’t thank me enough. MANG ROLDAN: Nahihiya po ako kasi ganito lang suot ko.(- I feel shy because of what I am wearing.) ME: Akong bahala po sainyo. Ano pong gusto nyong kainin? (- That is ok. Do not worry. What do you wanna eat?) MANG ROLDAN: Wala po ako sa posisyon para pumili. Kahit gulay lang po o yung pinakamura. (- I am not in the position to choose. I can have vegetables or the cheapest food would be fine.) ME: Kailangan nyo pong kumain. Order po kayo kahit ano, yung siguradong mabubusog kayo. (- You need to eat, and make sure to satisfy yourself.) I took his hand so he can walk beside the stand where he can choose. While they were giving him his food, I told him that I need to go home and get some money so I can pay his bill. At home, I grabbed my old camouflage jacket which I gave him. We talked about his tragic story and his plans. Years ago, he needed to sell their house and lot because his wife had a bone disease.  Sadly, everything was spent but his wife didn’t make it. He had 3 children. The first born were twins, died because of bronchopneumonia. While the youngest was ran over by a bus. He tried putting a small business by selling fishballs in Manila, but in the time of Bayani Fernando, MMDA took his carts and destroyed them. Mang Roldan and his family are church people. You can tell with the way he speaks. He visited Pampanga to see his sister/brother. Too bad he wasn’t able to meet the only family that he knows. Hearing his story broke my heart. I also noticed that he cannot walk straight because of his swollen left leg. “Lumipad yung bato na nadaanan nung gulong ng jeep, tumama sa paa ko” he said. (A rock smaller than my fist was the reason) He thanked me for the food and jacket. I handed him some money so he can ride the bus and buy food. He said that he cannot give me anything in return. Seeing him wipe his tears made me feel super sad that it made me cry too. I was speechless. I shaked his hand and told him that his story was enough for me to learn things, and I was happy that I was able to help him. I gave him my umbrella so he will not get wet on his journey. He didn’t want to take it, but I insisted. (I hope my mom won’t notice that her umbrella is missing) While Mang Roldan was crossing the street I was looking at him. I noticed that he was walking towards a corner. He saw a beggar on the side. You know what he did? He did not share the food that he had, HE GAVE EVERYTHING! Rice, bread, and water. That’s it! That was priceless! I knew that this man is special. He touched my heart. I realized that what I gave him is not even enough. Salt water fell from my eyes. (even while I’m typing now).  I decided to go to him when I noticed that busses and jeepneys were not stopping because of discrimination. So we waited for a bus and I took his picture. He smiled and said, “half-body lang ha, nakakahiya may dala akong sako. Hehehe!” What a guy! He can still smile after all the things that he went through.  Finally, a bus stopped. I told him to act as if he is my uncle. Before he stepped on the bus, he thanked me again. I waved goodbye and said “Ingat Tito, text mo ko kaagad.” I said it loud so the conductor will hear me and pretend that Mang Roldan has a cellphone. I don’t know, but he was like an angel that was sent to teach me and realize lots of things. That is why I decided to put it on FB, hoping that you will learn from it. If only I am wealthy enough, I would love to do more things just to help more needy, homeless, poor, deserving people. I have been planning to create my own Foundation since I was young. Well, God has plans for all of us. Maybe someday I will. I also hope I could meet Mang Roldan again, and give him a fishball business or have him help  me helping others.   I remember a book written by Father Jerry Orbos, that we should not be just good Samaritans but we need to be Better Samaritans. You can share this if you want. If not, just please pray that God bless the people like Mang Roldan. May God Bless you too =)
