Journey to Hope
By: Neil Brian Tan
Last December 6,2013, our block had an exposure trip to an organization.(P.S. The third from the left,that’s me!) After riding(partying) in the smoke-filled *cough* jeep for a long long time,we finally got to our destination. We were welcomed warmly by people—Ka Noli,the founder of Buklod Tao Inc.,the one wearing green and his company—with huge smiles plastered on their bright, loving faces. Take note: it was early in the morning. I was like, no one smiles like that that early! (hahaha!) But then, I first still thought it was going to be a morning filled with nothing but boring —of course,that is the typical impression for an exposure trip—but the following events lead my über sleepy self to think otherwise. Events that inspired me to write about it.
