Do You Have Slippers?

He has nothing! Come to think of it, you live a good life compared to this man. Why keep on complaining about life? You should be thankful for what you have! 1996, I was hired as a teacher for third grade in a remote location in the city. We had to walk 4-6 hours to arrive the destination of that baranggay. The place is called BESIGAN and the baranggay has a nice mountain view with untouched water falls. It took us long hours to walk because the contour of the land was steep and we had to cross the river and hills. It was tiring but, we are so excited with our job and serve the community. Just like the picture above, the students take pride of what they have. Their slippers/flip-flops are clean and you can tell that they only use it to go to school or when they go to the market. When they are at home, they love to play barefoot. Slippers are price possession for them. One time, it was raining so hard and time to finish the class. I saw the children took out a big plastic bag with Gaisano/Ororama prints and cover their school bags. They put their slippers inside the school bag and head home without umbrella and raincoats. I told them that they should wear the slippers to protect their feet but, they told me that they do not want their slippers to get dirty.

* I saw this picture from the wall of my friend Chloe and thought that I would share it here.
