The Floods and FB Finds

Calls to mind a vignette shared by my aunt when her building burned down in Makati. She said then Mayor Jejomar Binay arrived to check out the fire and, I guess, direct the firemen. She saw his worth then and there.

Saw this just now in FB. Decades back, Dick Gordon was mayor of Olongapo City still. A bad typhoon hit Negros. His men were deployed to our town and one of the huge trees in our garden was uprooted. We didn’t have the equipment to remove it. Papa asked DG’s men to help and they did just that. They refused to accept any payment so I think Papa just gave them merienda. DG is no longer in an elective position. Red Cross, maybe? But look at him. Other politicos  may wait for the rains to stop and have their photo ops when everything will have settled down and they can hand over relief goods. But not DG. Just look at him go:
