Understandably, with the many issues we deal with just with the business of everyday life and survival, we don't pay much attention to the past, except when in gatherings we talk about the good times back home and our early days in this country, in this modern technology age. We conveniently forget the harsh and hard life of those who came before us, but with a great resolve, survived and their descendants successfully blended into the mainstream of American society. If only once a year, in October, we should pause ans reflect on the many sacrifices of the Filipino immigrants, to better appreciate the life we have today.

Thank you for the very poignant video. Mabuhay ang PVFAA!
