I would never forget one scene in a Hollywood film I saw many years back (I guess, that was 1993). It was in the movie “Alive”, which starred one of my favorite Hollywood actors Ethan Hawke. In that scene, Ethan, together with a co-actor, climbed-up a great number of mountains in the Andes, in search of LIFE AND RESCUE. They had a plane crash in the middle of a great snow. Together with other young rugby players who all had to endure the great hardships of surviving the snow and the vast mountains, the movie was actually based on actual events.
And there was Ethan, with his FAITH stronger than the mountains, as he said this words- “We must keep on walking…At the other side of these mountains, there will be life. If we fail, at least we’ve tried, at least we did keep on walking…”- or something like those words.
yeah, those were the words somehow. As years passed by, I somehow forgot the exact words of Mr. Ethan Hawke on that tremendous film about a young group of men trapped in the snow and had to eat the fresh corpses of their dead friends just to survive on that plane crash.
But the movie was told not in a GROSS manner. The movie had a message.
That no matter how difficult it was to survive, we all had to live. We all must go on. We all must keep on walking…
My country, the Philippines, had experienced lots of tragedies already in the year 2012 up to the year 2014.
Natural calamities, poverty problems, the approval of new laws to be passed which were confusing and even nature contradicts them… and so many other problems.
But somehow, the spirit of the Filipino people lives.
They kept on fighting, they kept on living, they kept on WALKING.
And as the year 2014 continues, the new hopes of the Filipino people unveils…
Their spirits will live forevermore.
JUST KEEP ON WALKING, MY COUNTRYMEN.
JUST KEEP ON
An angel will guide us all…
