An excerpt:
"Let's imagine then, not just California, but the entire world, waking up one day to discover Filipinos have disappeared.

Are we proud of this fact?
Isn't it sad?
We make the world a better place to live in.
Yet we neglect our very own country.
Who do we blame for this?
The government?
The politicians?
The citizenry?

Just wondering ...
