You have to do something in your life that is honorable and not cowardly if you are to live in peace with yourself. -- Larry Brown
Never in my entire life have I tried to go to different places to participate for athletic events. I wasn’t born to be an athlete. That’s a fact. I was born a writer, but that is still debatable. Praise be to God, however, because journalism has become my avenue to go to places I couldn’t afford to go on my own allowance.
This year, as Region 7 holds its CVIRAA (Central Visayas Regional Athletic Association) Meet in Balamban, Cebu, I had the opportunity to be a member of the Quality Assurance and Documentation Committee of DepEd, Division of Negros Oriental. I am specifically a member of the newsletter-making group.
I am short of words for the hospitality of the billeting quarter, the nostalgic sense of writing once again after a long hiatus, the extravagance of the opening rites, the opportunity to make new teacher friends in the committee, the chance of meeting little dreamers whose heart-warming stories touched my soul and the grace and protection from God which never left me.
It is a great honor indeed to be trusted by bigwigs of the division at such ripe time (I only became a regular teacher last September 2014) to make the newsletter for them, together with three more gifted writers/teachers. Again, all praises to God and God alone!
