2009 CNN Heroes Award


Congratulations to Efren Peñaflorida - 2009 CNN Hero of the Year


It gives me a goose bumps makita ko na tumanggap ng 2009 CNN Hero of the Year si Efren Peñaflorida at magsalita ng speech sa harapan ng maraming tao sa Kodak Theater. Suot ang barong tagalog na may nakatahi ng mapa ng Pilipinas at may hawak ng miniature na push cart na may bandila ng Pilipinas at Ako Mismo dog tag na para bagang sinasabi nya sa lahat ng tao doon na "Isa akong Pinoy and I'm Proud of It".

Ikinararangal ko na isa ako sa mga bumoto sa kanya at nagpalaganap sa kanyang adhikain. Hindi lang si Efren ang ating batiin pati na rin ang kanyang groupo "Dynamic Teens Company". Maraming Salamat sa lahat na itinulong nyo sa Ating Bayan.

Matatandaan natin na may isang bayaning nanalo kaylan lang si Manny Pacquiao sa kanyang pagkapanalo sa Boxing kay Miguel Cotto at binigyan siya ng pinakamataas na karangalan ng ating Pangulong Gloria Arroyo. Sana mabigyan din at makilala ng atin gobyerno ang grupo ni Efren.

Ito ang mga sinabi ni Efren sa kanyang Speech
Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need.

So to each and every person inside in this theater and for those who are watching at home, the hero in you is waiting to be unleashed. Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve. As I always tell to my co-volunteers of Dynamic Teen Comapny and Club 8586 Inc., you are the change that you dream as I am the change that I dream and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be. Mabuhay
