The coming weekend is going to be colorful one, not only for me but for the whole society. Two key events are about to be celebrated and observed this coming Friday and Saturday. Add up the closing of the Second Semester of the School Year 2010-2011 (and the end of the School Year for that), and the result is one bombastic weekend!!!


(March, Rally, Pray for Life - Interfaith Rally against the RH Bill)
March 25, 2011, 4:00-9:00 PM, Quirino Grandstand, Manila

> Following the call of His Eminence, Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales of the Archdiocese of Manila to gather in one voice to support life and oppose the RH Bill, the Archdiocese of Manila and suffragan dioceses along with our friends from other denominations will celebrate life and shout once again its opposition on the RH Bill at the Quirino Grandstand on Friday, March 25, 2011. The program starts at 4:00 PM, and the Mass to be officiated by Cardinal Rosales will be celebrated at 7:00 PM.

March 25 is the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord's Birth, one sacred event in the history of Salvation. In our country, this day is also designated as the Day of the Unborn Children, a day of prayer for those infants who had been killed by abortion and infanticide. Once the RH Bill is passed, surely everyday will be a Day for the Unborn, which is against the moral laws and the fundamental law of our land.

We encourage you to come in blue and white. We also encourage you to prepare banners and posters, be it simple cartolina or a big tarpaulin. As long as it carries a pro-life message, it will suffice.

If you are for life, come and join us in this great undertaking!


2. EARTH HOUR 2011
March 26, 2011, 8:30-9:30 PM

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35countries/territories participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

And this year, they had chosen March 26, Saturday, as the day designated to have everybody's lights turned off for even just one hour. For a trivia, the Philippines is one good participant of the Earth Hour during the past three years.

We encourage everyone to continue taking a stand of support for the planet against its eternal doom through Climate Change. Be with us on March 26, from 8:30-9:30 PM. 

Also, we encourage those participating to do more than turning the lights off for one hour. Let's together work our own simple ways to stop climate change. Everybody has something to do, not only them, but us as well!


Well, this is one colorful weekend to end the month of March. If you have nothing to do this coming weekend, come join me and the whole society in observing and celebrating these two events which would help shape the destiny of our country and the whole world.
