Living and my Mom

I quote a beautiful poem from the Web about Mothers like my Mama.. and here goes:

                         "The Best mother that I LOVE"

"When God set the world in place, when He hung the stars up in space,
when He made the land and the sea, then He made you and me.
My mother, taken in 2009
He sat back and saw all that was good, He saw things to be as they should.
Just one more blessing He had in store; He created a mother, but whatever for?
He knew a mother would have a special place to shine His reflection on her child's face.
A mother will walk the extra mile just to see her children smile.
She'll work her fingers to the bone to make a house into a home.
A mother is there to teach and guide, a mother will stay right by your side.
She'll be there through your pain and strife, she'll stay constant in your life.
A mother will lend a helping hand until you have the strength to stand.
She'll pick you up when you are down, when you need a friend she'll stick around.
A mother is one who listens well, will keep her word; will never tell.
A mother never pokes or pries but stands quietly by your side,
giving you the strength you need, encouraging you to succeed.
A mother is one who can be strong when you need someone to lean on.
You're more than a mother to me; a reflection of Him in your face I see,
a love that knows no boundaries. I'm glad that you chose to be
all this and more to me. You share a love that knows no end,
you're more than my mother, you are my friend."

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
