It’s up to us

By

I had a couple of heartening responses to my column last week from friends in the Aboitiz family through their charitable donations, and from my good friend Jun Magsaysay. The golf tournament was a very successful event, graced by former president Fidel Ramos’ indomitable spirit (how he keeps going in such an indefatigable way I’m damned if I know). We raised enough funds to help seven families start a new life. The winner of the tournament was Nino Bandoquillo, with Sgt. Alex Dagooc as first runner-up (whatever happened to the second of my youth in sports?). Villamor Golf Club under Col. Oscar Calingasan did a great job of organizing and feeding.

Gates of hell

By

I remember again Tolstoy’s story of the freezing coachman. That story tells of an aristocrat who goes to the theater one wintry night to watch a play. The tragedy unfolding before her moves her to tears and makes her grieve over the plight of humanity. Meanwhile, outside, barely kept warm by his ragged clothes, her faithful coachman freezes to death while waiting for her.
