It is the duty of the little Davids of this world to fling the pebbles of truth in the eyes of the blustering Goliaths and force them to behave!Carlos P. Romulo - To Russian Ambassador Andrei Vinshinski after the latter said to him “You are just a little man from a little country.”
My what big teeth you have…
An example of the fauna that exists in the Philippines. Yes, the Philippines has crocodiles.
Community is delicious
it satisfies me
an idea of a collective, that we bring into being together
The community gives me purpose to find my identity
it’s a fun and educational place to be
we sing and dance like the show Glee
and we love each other like family
Having each others back when we need
each other most,
bringing the people together from coast-to-coast
Community is people coming together to serve a purpose.
so serve it up and let’s do this! KAMPUNITY!
it means getting by at basketball courts, family parties,
picking calamansi trees,
it means lola’s praying churches, schools, police
and rules lets get by together…
We must go beond the proximity of our own comfort
to see the change we wish to see,
vulnerability and dialogue is key
late night converstations
politickin’ over contradicting ideologies
while love grows as we build collective identities.
Community: puts in love and work
Community: a common unity
always disregarded, you’re always there.
I AM THE COMMUNITY, AND THE COMMUNITY IS ME.
Come hang with us at Yogurtland on Mira Mesa Boulevard on the 13th of July. Students past/current/new and friends, we would love to see you all.
