A moment of silence

Amidst all the terrorism and recession going on in the whole world, there is always a moment of silence when Manny Pacquiao, a phenomenal professional boxer, is on international television for a huge boxing fight. Manny's influence has greatly impacted the Filipinos especially to the public figures. I was browsing the net last night to check on the schedule and to my surprise, a headliner read " Military suspends offensives for Pacquiao-Dela Hoya fight." Logically, if we can put aside our angst this way, could it not be applied in real-life and be more sensitive? Oh well, I am only a tiny voice to speak up of what's happening today.

Anyways, going back to the event, the bout between Manny and Oscar had been one of the most awaited match. Ever since Manny dominated most of the tournaments, I felt this match was to somehow (in the slightest chance) regain what many Mexican boxers had lost. Yet after watching the fight a few hours ago, Manny has yet to be defeated. Although Oscar is really hot and all, Manny is still "D Man." Cheers to all Pinoys!
