As Simple As That

Panjee Tapales Lopez 11 September 2005 An actress recently announced that she was finally leaving her notoriously unfaithful husband. Last week, her father-in-law told reporters he wished she would be more patient with his son because one day "magsasawa din iyan" (he will tire of it). He also said that he reminds his son to "stay away from trouble as much as possible. If you can't avoid it be careful; be discreet". I was appalled. This is the kind of fragmentation that breeds morally deficient people. The whole culture of lying and cheating begins here. Right in the home. This is a nation that struggles with corruption, truth and integrity. In that father's statement, we get a glimpse of its roots.
