The short video entitle “Kambas ng Lipunan” made me realize the true face of society and the reality we live in. I have so many questions I ask myself like “What is my purpose in life? Am I on the right path? Have I done anything to help those in need?” but until now I still don’t have the answers.

The maker of the short video, Joey Velasco, shared his talent and tried to make a difference in the society through his paintings Most of us would just watch and do nothing, but one man stood up and made an impact. It really is an eye-opener for the viewers to cherish and be thankful on the blessing that we receive. While I am spending money for such nonsense things, others are dying of hunger. I was a man who did not think of the value of money for others nor have I thought how hard it was to earn it, and it was proven true when I saw the clip. They are obliged to work for them to live, instead of them going to school and have a proper education for a brighter future. I don’t know how these children handle all the pressure and burden of being a breadwinner at such a young age. But as I watched the video, I can still the smile on their faces as if they don’t have problems or that they can face any obstacle they experience. It just shows that these children still haven’t lose hope of making their lives better. I have felt this extra ordinary kind of guilt within me. I can’t explain that feeling, it seems that I am very useless for I can’t do anything to those who are less fortunate than me.

He made me look, he made me see and most importantly, he made me notice them. But it doesn’t end there, upon noticing, he made me want to do something—and do it. After what I have seen I can no longer be the man I was, I’m sure anyone who has seen the film would say the same.

...maituturing na wika, at lahat ng iba pang salita ay mga diyalekto. Hindi tama ito. May mga paraan ang mga pantas-wika o linguists para malaman kung ano ang wika at kung ano ang wikain o diyalekto. Ang batayan ay kung nagkakaunawaan ang dalawang nagsasalita. Kapag hindi sila nagkakaunawaan, nagsasalita sila ng magkaibang wika. Kapag nagkaunawaan, nagsasalita sila ng parehong wika o diyalekto ng isang wika. Walang bale kung ang pananalita ay may lima o isang milyong tagapagsalita; kung mayroon itong panitikan o wala; o kung sinasalita ito sa isang baranggay o sa buong probinsya. Hindi mapagpasya ang alinman sa mga ito sa pagkilala sa kung ano ang wika at ano ang diyalekto. Sa batayang ito, ang Ilokano, Sebwano, Kapampangan, Pangasinan, Hiligaynon, Bikol, Butuanon at Meranao, kung magbabanggit ng ilan, ay hindi mga diyalekto kundi ganap na mga wika. Diyalekto o wikain ang tawag sa baryasyon ng isang wika, gaya ng Dumaguete-Cebuano, Davao-Cebuano at Iligan-Cebuano. Ang Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino o KWF ay nakapagtala ng may 170ng wika sa bansa. Maaaring umabot sa 500 ang mga diyalekto. Pangsampu tayo sa may pinakamaraming wika sa daigdig. Nangunguna ang Papua New Guinea. Ang “Tagalog.” “Pilipino,” at “Filipino” ba ay magkakaibang wika? Hindi. Ang mga ito ay mga baryasyon na “mutually intelligible” at samakatwid, ay kabilang sa iisang wika. Ayon sa KWF, ang Filipino ay ang uri ng wika na sinasalita sa Metro Manila at iba pang punong-lunsod na pinagtatagpuan ng iba’t......
