A son wants to bring his Mother into the forest and leave her there to fend for herself because her Mother is terminally ill and he is too tired to take care of her.
Leading her through the thick of the forest, he noticed that his Mother breaks every branch that they passed by.
Curious, he ask his Mother why is she breaking the branches?
The Mother answered her son loving: “Son, I break the branches as a guide for you to follow so that you won’t get lost on the way out.”
Translated from Filipino story:Isang paalala kung gaano kayo kamahal ng inyong ina..May isang anak na gustong iligaw ang kanyang INA sa gubat dahil sa sakit nitong wala nang lunas at pagod na rin siyang mag-alaga dito, Ipinasan niya ang kanyang INA hanggang makarating sa kasuluksulukan ng Gubat, ngunit napansin niya na pinuputol ng kanyang INA ang bawat sanga ng Punong madaanan nila, tinanong nang Anak kung bakit niya ginagawa ito, sagot ng INA – ”Pinuputol ko ang sanga dahil ayaw kong maligaw ka sa pag uwi mo.
There are so many activities that are worthwhile today. Which walk should I attend?When I started planning today’s walk, the first option I chose was AIDs walk. I have supported this walk since I have I know people who have this disease. Now, it’s just another illness like a common cold. The only thing is there is no cure, only prevention. It is a good cause.Suddenly, invitations to go out for walk came up such as:
These walks are about Reconciliation. I think it will be a gathering of all Nations to walk towards reconciliation. Reconciliation is a good thing in order to have peace and unity.
It will be a very interesting day.Not only I will be with esteemed leaders such as Suzuki and the Elders, Dr. Bernice A. King, a Baptist minister and the youngest child of iconic U.S. civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will deliver the keynote address at the start of Canada’s first-ever Walk for Reconciliation.Sorry, Aid Walk Vancouver some other day. I have a better offer.
