A CULTURE OF CORRUPTION: A HARD HABIT TO BREAK

It’s the day after Judgment day for all who desired to run for public office here in our place. The Barangay poll yesterday was generally peaceful in our locality where we casted our votes. We went to the polling center in the afternoon upon learning that the ballot boxes arrived two hours late than expected. By wife’s brother ran for a barangay post and lost the race gracefully accepting his defeat. We knew from friends that vote buying and bribes were very much alive for those politicians who have the gold during this election. Even our past national and local elections always have this tainted image of corruption.

It’s quite frustrating and many times disheartening the battle against corruption in our beloved motherland. It has become a culture a hard habit to break. But I will not succumb myself to hopelessness and do nothing. Instead, I will be active in every endeavour to lift up a positive image of our country in my own little way. Yes, I firmly believe we could still see the dawning of brand new day for our beloved Philippines.
