    Hello dear readers, It’s June and half of the year is almost gone. But we still have rain at times and it’s good for the grass and all the plants in our garden.  Although lately, it’s been getting to more sunny now, I’m sure that everyone is enjoying the outdoors. June is a very important month for [...]

Our Filipino Community in Calgary

TIGS CORNER

By: Tigs Tidalgo

Part 1 of 3: Introduction.

I am an avid optimist to suppose that somehow, we can pull ourselves together and with our sense of pride and value could push our community onward to a right direction. We have the potential and with vigor and proper direction, a turning point is possible.

As people needs it in their lives, our community today needs it more. I know that we can do it. We just have to believe in ourselves that we are people capable enough to build and to realize a purpose. With this in mind, things will come into shape for the betterment of all. Good intention   when pursued seriously in togetherness by devoted people always come out gainful.

I learnt from a wise man that life is not solely inscribe by needs alone. There’s more to just exist. It may not be our intension when we crossed the ocean, but it is an abiding calling of our instinct to belong. The Filipino community is ours. It is our home. It charactirizes us as people and a compoment in society. We are judged by our conduct and prraise from our triumph It defines us individually and collectively as people.

It is indeed a puzzle that our community is about  half a century old and is still learning how to live. It is odd that progress though how hard we try, pessimistic attitude always drag it down.

It has been a long sad story that people already presumed that this business of community building is not really for us. That it is already a dead issue and no one could ever put it to reality.

Our community should not be just a togerness of  dreams, but also as a community of deeds.

When things are not at all pretty, even a lie is beautiful. Though this supposition is at times with substance, it is not what we intend. It is true that we want to build our community strong and respected. This effort is not just a punch in the dark. It is real and focus that we may have a turning point someday. It could be from wounded pride to have gone nowhere for sometime that drives us to try once more. We have high hopes that with commonality in purpose and seriousness in effort, we could somehow gain fair distance.

what is there to lose? Let’s work together for a noble cause. We are Filipinos.
