Sa mga Mata ni Ekang

Standard

Title: Sa mga Mata ni Ekang
Reporter: Kara David (of Sine Totoo GMA7)

Reaction:
The documentary of Kara David entitled “Sa mga Mata ni Ekang” is a story of an ordinary child who is about 4 years old. There is nothing special about her except the people around her.

Her Father is a pedicab driver who turns out to be a holdaper in the evening. Her Mother on the other hand is a drug pusher and user at the same time. She was also used to be a prostitute. Her Grandmother is a myrmidon which is also known as “bugaw”. While her 15 year old uncle is a smoker, drunkard and a computer addict.

I wonder what is ahead in Ekangs’ life. Actually Ekang isn’t alone. She is not the only victim in the story. She has a little sister who is just a month old.

This documentary of Kara David opened my eyes into reality. This is reality. Poverty is all over the Philippines that we always tried to deny and ignore. All Filipinos should be aware of it. We should know what is happening around us.

Ekangs’ life is just one in a million of Filipinos who suffered poverty and hunger. No one can blame her family for having those kinds of jobs.
They have no choice they say. I somehow believe them.
Being a prostitute, pusher, smoker, and uneducated is hard.
They have to face all kind of criticism everyday. They have to hide from the authorities. They are not free. They are afraid of their own ghosts.
According to them they used to be rich, but because of carelessness and being irresponsible they didn’t used their money wisely. Instead of using it for business they used it in casinos and other things that are not important. That is the reason why they decided to be what they are.
We cannot judge them in the life they chose. They are doing this for a living. Let us not judge them for they are only human. I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Ekangs’ future depends on herself alone. If she chose to be like her family then we can’t blame her. I pity Ekang. She doesn’t deserve to have this kind of life in such an early age.

I feel so lucky that I have a better family. Though not perfect, still I feel lucky for being educated and cared for.
Ekang’s life should be an inspiration to those who feel that life has been unfair to them.

If you believe life has been unfair to you what else would you call Ekangs’ life?

Here in the Philippines, marriage is a sacred bond.
As Christians we strongly believe in marriage obligations and responsibilities.
Implementing Divorce is one of the biggest issues between our government and our church.
Family is the foundation of every home. And it is a must to save it from destruction.
Though we must admit that many of us Filipinos encounter failed marriage and relationship.
Not realizing the affect on our children.

Saving relationship is hard, especially if trust is involve.

There’s a lot of reason why marriage fails like arguments, womanizing, hatred, misunderstandings, boredom, poor communication and etc. are some of them. Couples should have and live a healthy life style and seek professional advice in case of relationship instability.

I found this interesting video about a site that will give each one of us tips and advices in saving marriage from getting worst.
The owner of this site is a famous and well known in terms of saving ones relationship.

But Mort Fertels’ voice gives me the assurance that he can really help in giving life to a lifeless marriage.
His voice is like a therapy for a broken heart.
