POSITION PAPER



With all the crises of global proportions that have hit the Philippines - i.e., food shortage, skyrocketing fuel prices, terrorism and other peace and order problems, natural calamities, etc. - I think that my primary and basic concern, and of every Filipino for that matter, is, simply, SURVIVAL. The inability to provide adequately the basic needs of one's family due to financial constraints, is by itself an alarming concern for every parents. This concern is further compounded by lingering fear of uncertainties: our streets are not safe, will my children fall victims to the bad elements of society? Will my family suffer when the next calamity strikes?
