You do not have to look hard to find examples of courage by filipino people. My friend's destitute mother who lived on the side of the railroad tracks for 20 years and raised eight children after her husband deserted her, is one such example. Her three oldest sons have graduated from college. This an example of human courage; not specifically filipino. Pinoy Pride is a phony form of ethnic chest thumping which is a distraction from the dialogue of change and reform that should be taking place.
