Words and Photo by Melvin Mapa / Manila Today


I tried to frame reality in a fraction of a second. But the next second, I realized a daunting plight – destitution.

“To where?” This photograph seemed to ask. “What now?”

In the Philippines, a lot of terrified voices continue to ask these same questions.  To where is the country headed? More so, where are millions of lives headed?

In truth, some have already given up because of the crushing predicaments. But there are some, who continue to put all their trust to the brave ones who risk their lives fighting destitution’s oppressive talons.

And, this led me to ask, “Why not join the fight?”
