“Existence is a strange bargain. Life owes us little. We owe it everything. The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose.” — William Cowper

IN this life, we should adhere to the message of the Power Of We — putting aside individual differences and working together for a greater good.

This becomes second nature in business, politics and the community so, that together, we can accomplish that much more for our amazing Fil-Am community.

With the varied talent, expertise and know-how of our kabayans, a lot of things can be done and achieved which we all can be proud of.

Stop the bickering, stop the inggitan, stop the crab mentality.

In the end, you are answerable to your God who sees all what you’re doing, and knows what you’re thinking.

To borrow Father Jerry Orbos’ words of wisdom, here’s something to ponder thru the days of your life.

1. Don’t take anyone or anything seriously.

2. Money can be earned.

3. Petty quarrels can be resolved.

4. Loss of a loved one is irreplaceable.

5. Loss of soul is the greatest failure.
