DON'T KILL THE DOLPHINS OR I'LL SHOOT YOU!

I love Dolphins. I have a dolphin bracelet, necklace, keychain, bag, stickers and figurines.

And I've also been a part of a program of "Saving the Dolphins."

Anyway...I did not go to work today, to pack my stuffs and ready myself for my flight later to Seoul, Korea.

and while spending time checking my emails and some videos which my best friend uploaded in Youtube, I also checked some "Dolphin videos" and here's what I found:

HOW COULD YOU!!!
DON'T YOU HAVE A HEART?

THOSE PEOPLE...THOSE BUSINESS PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE CALLED HUMANS...AT ALL.

I am very sure...their souls will be burned in HELL!

If I only have the power to kill those "dolphin killers", I will kill them same way they killed those poor sea creatures.

But of course, God is the only one who can give them the proper punishment.

For all those who care... LET'S SAVE THE DOLPHINS!

How?

With our own little way, we can save those dolphins and whales.

Do this for the future.

I love Mc Cain!

Yup...you read it right!
He was and still my bet...
Of course Obama is a good choice too...articulate, full of wisdom and young.
A good debater as well...
His promises are good too...sweet like candy.

But
If I am an American and I live in America...My vote would be for Mc Cain.

Don't ask me why.

But to give you a hint: The young may be full of knowledge but lack experience. "Words spoken written in the air".

I prefer the old who has been there already...than a young whose path is unknown.


Anyway...
President Obama would not be in his position today if not for those people who believed in him. So I believe too that he has the quality of a leader that Mc Cain doesn't have.

God knows who to put in charge...

So fine...Congratulations to President Barack Obama. May you lead America to its greater heights as before. GodBless you!

Let me share to you some parts of Mc Cain's speech:

"I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together to find the necessary compromises to bridge our differences and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited.

Whatever our differences, we are fellow Americans. And please believe me when I say no association has ever meant more to me than that."

We fought -- we fought as hard as we could. And though we feel short, the failure is mine, not yours.

Tonight -- tonight, more than any night, I hold in my heart nothing but love for this country and for all its citizens, whether they supported me or Senator Obama

I wish Godspeed to the man who was my former opponent and will be my president. And I call on all Americans, as I have often in this campaign, to not despair of our present difficulties, but to believe, always, in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here."

--------------------

Now, who wouldn't love a man with sincere words like that?

Come on Pinoys! Learn from him...

I disagree with Claire

Yes, I totally disagree with Ms. Claire Dela Fuente the current President of Integrated Metropolitan Bus Operators Association (IMBOA) and also considered as the most powerful figure in the Public Transportation Industry nowadays.

So....she is responsible for all the "Bus accidents" that happened for the past few days.
Well, not totally ONLY her. But she needs to do something...or think of something to do quickly!

Instead she said "Accidents on the road is a common thing. It was just highlighted because a popular figure in the name of Dr. Sarabia was one of the victim. Accident is called accident because it just happens."

But this is my opinion:

Accidents happen. It just happen
But it can be avoided....with proper measures.

There are things to be done....
Changes to implement...

There is a solution to MINIMIZE THE OCCURRENCE OF ACCIDENTS AND THEREFORE SAVE LIVES.

We just have to be responsible and take charge.

Nuff said

This accident could have been ours...


Before I write here why...
Let me share to you this news:

Overtaking bus slams into car in Pampanga; 6 dead, 56 hurt

MANILA, Philippines — At least six people, including a priest, were killed in a head-on collision between a packed passenger bus and a utility vehicle along the North Luzon Expressway in Pampanga on Saturday.

Police said fifty-six others were injured, many of them in critical condition.

Sr. Supt. Fernando Villanueva, regional officer of the police Highway Patrol Group 3, said the incident involved a Fermina Express bus with body number 97824 and plate number NYN-688 and a Toyota Revo with plate number XHE-829.

Umoovertake itong bus at kinuha ang linya ng Revo (The bus was overtaking another vehicle and went into the Revo’s lane),” Villanueva said in an interview on dzBB radio.

Preliminary investigation showed the bus was heading north for Pangasinan while the Revo was heading south to Manila when they collided.

The incident occurred at about 1 p.m. at the portion of the NLEX near Sta. Ines village in Mabalacat town in Pampanga.

Senior Supt Pete Singian, Pampanga provincial director, said four of the fatalities were killed on the spot, including the Revo’s two riders and three of the bus passengers.

A fourth bus passenger died later in hospital of severe injuries, he said also over dzBB radio.

Police identified three of the fatalities as Fr. Domingo Moraleda of Claret School in Quezon City, Revo driver as Ruth Dianne Ferrer of Diliman, Quezon City; and Aurelia Montera of undertermined address.

Ferrer’s dead companion was described as a foreigner but the identity has yet to be established.

Superintentent Singian earlier told dzBB that bus driver Bernardo V. Santos, of Mangaldan, Pangasinan, was among those killed on the spot but other police officials assigned to investigate said the driver was still fighting for his life in hospital.

Singian said one of the passengers earlier reported to be a child turned out to be a “small woman.”

“There was no child among the fatalities,” he said.

Police said most of the passengers were on their way home or the All Saints and All Souls Day holidays. Province-bound buses from Manila were packed on Friday as people rushed to their rural homes to visit their loved ones in cemeteries.

Violent impact

Superintendent Villanueva said the impact of the collision was apparently so violent. “Grabe, naghiwalay ang katawan (It was gruesome. Some of the fatalities were dismembered),” he said.

Reporter Benjie Liwanag, who was reporting at the accident site, said the Revo was wrecked beyond recognition. “Warak ‘yung Revo, pati yung makina tumalsik (The Revo is a total wreck. Its engine was thrown into a distance),” he said.

He said the front portion of the bus was crumpled and anyone seating in the front seats could not have survived.

Nagkalat ang mga bag, pagkain, sinelas, kuwarta at puro duguan ang mga upuan na nahiwalay sa bus (Bags, food, slippers and money are all around the wreck and blood-soaked seats have been separated from the vehicle),” he reported.

“Even the road shoulder has been destroyed,” Liwanag said, explaining that the two vehicles were thrown off the road upon impact. - GMANews.TV

----------------------------------------

Last November 1, 2008 although it's raining, I and my parents decided to go to Pangasinan to visit my grandparents who are both healthy and kicking :). We are so busy everyday and well Nov 1 seemed to be the perfect day to visit our "not-so-old groovy folks" because obviously it's a 'Satuday-no-work-day". My dad also wanted to test our new SUV's performance on "long driving".

Before we leave, our family prayed together. For others it seems corny but that's how we are. We asked God to protect us and to keep us safe from harm.

That day was also my Snowball's first trip after several months. He was a bit nervous but I could se he was excited too. Like a "mom" I packed some food and water for him. I made his trip "overly comfy" :)

We all thought it would be too crowded in the road. There was a heavy traffic on Edsa and in front of SM North but after that...the road was as clear as a day with only few cars all running in full speed.

We had "brunch" (breakfast and lunch together) at Jollibee North expressway. Funny, because I saw some familiar faces. I was expecting there would be a long line in the counter. There was a line...but not too long.

I told my mom "this seems to be a nice day" Not a bit traffic, no long line in fastfoods, it's not sunny and the air was a bit cold.

My persian cat was also in a good mood.

My mom looked at her watch and said "hey it's almost 12pm, let's go"

So then, we proceed to our trip.

My Dad took advantage of the clear expressway and drove at a fast speed.

But...while driving at 120km/h our SUV suddenly stopped! Like somebody just turned off the power!

We were all panicking and my Dad kept on questioning "why? how could this be? this is a new car?"

I looked at my watch...it's 12:10pm already.

Our target time to reach Pangasinan is 3pm.

My parents...not knowing what to do...started calling for an "emergency patrol"

Good thing...there were so many emergency assistants waiting in the expressway...

Just as when they were about to look at our engine...the car started again!

So shocking...so frightening.

The police who walked up to us made a joke sort of "Perhaps there was a ghost of your relative who is with you now and he or she is playing with you"

and we all asked "who could that be?"

Anyway...we just shrugged off what happened and went on our trip...

About 2 km from where we stopped, an accident happened between a Fermina Bus and a Revo car....

From the opposite side of the road we could see several Ambulances.

We were all silent inside the car...wondering what's happening

Traffic was already building...

After 5 minutes...we saw the whole thing...The blood...the bodies...the wrecked vehicle...

and that's when we realized why our own car suddenly stopped...God saved us from that tremendous accident.

-----------------------------------
Today you may be laughing and having a fine day.........tomorrow you may die
That's how life is...
and that's how death is
----------------------------------
You don't know when death would come
But if our life is in God's hands...we should not worry
HE IS IN CONTROL

-----------------------------------
Condolence to the family of those people who suffered died from the accident
