Let’s take a break from controversial (and depressing) stuff like those Baguio City Council members (except Councilor Tabora and Vice Mayor Fariñas) voting to buy cars for themselves to give out our next Boon Award.
If you remember, we give this award to people or groups who have done something good for their communities. This time we are giving the award to the Sagada Genuine Guides Association (SAGGA) for their “cave vandalism cleanup”. Visit this site and read more about the group.
As you’ll see in the above video, the members of SAGGA spent their time cleaning up the writings/ paintings/ markings of destructive mammals who wanted to immortalize themselves by vandalizing the cave’s walls. I guess it’s human to try to leave your mark wherever you can but let’s not do it by destroying the work of nature.
So let’s give a shoutout to the SAGGA kids for their effort to return the cave to its “unvandalized” state. Thanks, guys and gals for your service to the community. We hope you continue your good works.
We also hope that those Baguio councilors (Hello, Councilor Balisong nga kailiyan ni Nadjhin!) will learn a lesson or two from you kids about the meaning of “community service” or “public service”.
