click the link to find the story of another great young man: An 18-year-old construction worker braved rampaging floods in the Philippines to save more than 30 people, but ended up sacrificing his life in a last trip to rescue a baby girl and her mother who were being swept away on a styrofoam box. from http://www.theage.com.au/
Celebrities can turn to real life heroes too:
Here's Gerald Anderson's pic i got from SPOT.PH:i heart the young man!
"“Gerald tried to check on us since he knows and he saw I have three small kids with me, plus the house staff. The whole ground floor of our house was affected by the water. We told him we [were] still okay, and the second time he went back to us there, he was with Cesar Montano and Bayani Agbayani, plus others. We [asked them to] check on [the street where my brother lives],” says Dr. Murao."from SPOT.PH
WHy do I like him? Well, he didnt meant to publish the good act he did for his neighbors. He's just checking on them thats it. No big rubber boat but heck he wade in the water pa din, only a brave man with a huge heart can do that. Why am I partial with the other celeb with the rubber boat? Coz he has a movie co-starring the girl he saved and there were others who needed his help on the way. I dont know if the news lack info but I hope he did save the other children who got stranded too. Enough for negative vibes.
Oh one last, if Jacque Bermejo did put that comment on Facebook, I hope she'll find a place to hide coz lots of Pinoys are angry at her right now.
Other real life heroes are unknown. Their stories would not be read in papers nor their face be seen on TV but their names will be etched on the hearts of those they've helped. God bless them.
We can be a hero too. We just have to stand up and act.
