Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s health condition continues to deteriorate due to her “irreversible and progressive” spine disease, according to the findings of a surgeon from the Veterans Memorial Medical Center’s Department of Orthopedics.Some members of the House of Representatives are crossing party lines to ask the government to give Mrs. Arroyo a Christmas furlough, but it seems that this administration neither has the wisdom or the compassion to be kind, even on Christmas, as evidenced by Penoy's "Bahal na si Lord sa inyo" line, and his lack of action in Tacloban.
So whatever happened to "Mom taught us well"? Apparently "Mom" didn't teach them how to be kind to other people.
"Compassion is bringing our deepest truth into our actions, no matter how much the world seems to resist, because that is ultimately what we have to give to this world and one another." – Ram Dass
