Efren Penaflorida is 2009 CNN Hero of the Year

“Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry. Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need. So to each and every person inside in this theater and for those who are watching at home, the hero in you is waiting to be unleashed. Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve. As I always tell to my co-volunteers … you are the change that you dream as I am the change that I dream and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be.”

We are very proud of you for bringing honor to our beloved country! Mabuhay ka Efren, Mabuhay ang Pinoy! For details of the third-annual “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute” at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, CLICK HERE.

Last October 2009 I also written a journal to spread the news about helping Efren to become the first Filipino CNN Hero of the Year (CLICK HERE). The link also provides relevant information on why Efren should be in the top 10 CNN Heroes as he helps improve the literacy of young Filipinos. 

Maraming salamat sa ating mga kababayan at natupad ang ating mithiin na makilala si Efren bilang Pilipinong bayani sa buong mundo!  Sino naman kaya ang susunod sa yapak ni Efren? Bawat isa sa atin ay may hangaring tumulong sa ating kapwa, hindi para bigyan tayo ng papuri, kungdi handa tayong tumulong na walang kapalit sa kapakanan ng mga kababayang kapus-palad!

  1. It’s true then that the Filipino is worth dying for. Mabuhay Manny Pacquiao! Mabuhay Efren Penaflorida! Mabuhay ang Pilipino!

  2. […] Efren became the first Filipino to be chosen as the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year.  For details, CLICK  HERE. Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)shifting our physical space in youth […]

  3. Isang simpleng tao lamang ang kailangang makapuna sa kakulangan ng paaralan sa ating lipunan, isang simpleng tao ang nakaisip na kailangang ihatid ang iskwela sa mga batang kalye. Isang simpleng tao lamang ang nakaisip na sa pamamagitan ng isang kariton maisasakatuparan ang kanyang mga pangarap na makatulong sa kapuspalad na Pilipinong nais makapag-aral.

    Hindi kailangan ng Dyip ni Erap o Depadyak ni Roxa o makabagong ZTE technology para maipatupad ang tunay na pagbabago, isang ordinaryong mamamayan sa katauhan ni Efren at sa isang kariton mnagkaruon ng pagbabago na kinilala sa buong mundo.
