"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

Rodrigo Duterte, a mere month into his presidency, mouthed the dreaded phrase in a pique this week, after the chief justice had reminded him of the democratic arrangement in which each of the 3 branches of government is left to its own role and powers – his (the executive), hers (the judiciary), and the legislature.

WWW: Women on the Web are not Welcome
by/Ana P. Santos Published Jan 29, 2015
Authorities either underestimate the threat that technology-related violence presents or do not have a full understanding of how the pervasiveness of such violence causes psychological and emotional distress.
According to Take back the Tech, a collaborative campaign against on-line forms of violence, about 95% of on-line harassment in the form of text, images and videos are targeted at women.
“A liberal interpretation of RA 9262 can include electronic violence as a form of psychological abuse,” said Claire Padilla, executive director of legal NGO, EngendeRights.
But one limitation of RA 9262 is that it is predicated on a dating relationship. You must be dating, having sex with or married to the perpetrator.
