Raising A Reader

As a mom my frustration is that I am not raising a reader this is a bit of frustration for me because I love to read.Admittedly I feel a little bit of inggit when my friends kids have read a lot of books at a young age.

PNOY Versus The Supreme Court

I agree that the law should really serve the ultimate benefit of the majority of the people within reason and never based on mere whims of those who wield the power to use it to serve self interests — something we saw a lot of in previous administrations. Hence, having the appropriate check & balance mechanism is really important. Discernment and thorough study of the issue is key before making conclusions. This is something that Aquino administration needs to remember. Continue reading »
