Thoughts from holiday

Friday, August 15, 2008

I'm back from my company trip to Bohol-Cebu. I realised that the people there are really poor... with squatters sprouting out from many parts of the city. I also managed to visit a church (Living the Gospel) that helps out poor children by providing them with school essentials and stuff - I'm glad that I was able to help and put a smile on their faces (details to be posted soon).

The thing is, some of these people (those I passed while I was in the coach, the kids, etc.) seemed contented with what they have. Seemed being the keyword. I guess I would never know unless I really speak to them. That brings me to a thought...

If you don't know what's outside your world, you would not think of pursuing (hence to a certain extent, feel contented), but if you do; you would never be satisfied.

I guess to some, ignorance is indeed bliss.

IF it were you, would you choose to know?
