I was glued to the tube last sunday and wow was i surprised at what i was to see and hear...Fire was gushing out of the angry father of davao...and later that night i saw both him and a davao's congressman fighting on national news.. I didn't know if I should laugh or be saddened or embarassed over the petty fight between two respected politician of davao.
But one thing surely did catch my attention...when the congressman said that the Mayor does nothing but terrorize the constituents of davao city.... I BEG TO DISAGREE...thats why i nearly fell off my chair...
I had been a resident of davao for almost five years and i still come home to davao on weekends. Davao is home for me. Not because i have my friends, and my family there but Davao is such a livable City. When you are in davao you get to know what living peacefully is. You could actually walk around town at the middle of the night without even having to worry every second that a lowly criminal will attack you. Of course, i am not saying that Davao is crime free...but there's no reason to be paranoid about stuff when your in davao. it is so damn peaceful..unless you get in the wrong crowd of course..
I came across rich aristocrats from provinces around davao..most of their kids are enrolled in davao rather than in manila...i constantly asked the question why (its my silent way of surveying if people share the same sentiments that i have) and i get the same answer everytime...BECAUSE IN DAVAO THEY KNOW THEIR KIDS ARE SAFE.
Whether its true that the Mayor terrorize people in davao...i don't really give a damn coz i know i shall be forever wanting him to be the father of Davao because people tend to follow the law...no one dares to break them...because when they do they will never know what lies ahead...Some people may call that terrorizing but i guess not when i myself reap the benefits of such act... i don't feel threatened and i know thousands of Davaoenos feel the same. You really got nothing to be really worried about if you know you have never inflicted harm on anybody else...and when you do...better run and hide!
Whatever this two are fighting about... i really don't care...cause i know i am living peacefully in davao.
Davao at peace...davao's beautiful skyline...
