A group of Australians who visited here in the Philippines went to a garbage disposal place. Small children ran over and greeted them with all smiles. One member of the group broke down and cried.
When asked about the incident she said: “I lived my whole life in a nice home, nice clothes, and [with] a good paying job, but I wasn’t happy... Here I am in a place where basically garbage became their homes and [they] could barely afford decent slippers, and they all came out happy and smiling.”
Filipinos are generally happy people because they always find reasons to be happy—poverty is never a reason to give up.
Many Filipinos find inspiration in athletes who have striven to succeed despite being poor. Allow me to enumerate the top ten such Filipino athletes of all time.
