Congratulations and God Bless, Mr. Manny Pacquiao!

My heartfelt congratulations to Manny Pacquiao and his team for proving once again that Filipinos can be the best in the world. Finally, a world champion for a true Filipino hero.

I have two pictures above courtesy of AP Photo (Isaac Brekken and Ric Jamison). These are two contrasting pictures of Manny Pacquiao being butchered and "humiliated” by an equally gifted Mexican JM Marquez and a picture in triumph but in a company of a politician with questionable character.

Manny bet his life on the line to unite the Filipino nation once again, at least for a couple of hours. It is difficult being battered in the middle of the ring and with millions of viewers all over the world but I know Manny has taken pride in bringing a corrupt nation together for a glimpse of hope. But I don’t think people like Chavit Singson should be in the picture. (Nice to say that the First Gentleman wasn’t there to raise Manny’s victorious fists. I could have turned off the TV.) He is like a rotten tomato trying to get some ride from real champion.

Thank you Manny for doing this sacrifice once again and job well done in putting a great fight.

But I would really suggest that if you can, try to land some punch on the conscience of your supposedly “government supporters” that ruin your victory.

God Bless Manny Pacquiao!
