go out of the country... and you will see a different picture. You'll get a hint what are the things that Philippines lacks, but you'll also realize that the situation of our country is not that bad (and actually, you will see economic growth compared to other countries).
Our goverment sucks, but it is not an evil government compared to ____ (you can name many countries here). If all people lose hope, then there's really no hope. But I see light at the end of the tunnel, we just need to give our share. We can replace our government with a better one. :)
No country is perfect. But you can make your life better.
