Our mentor in the Social Entrepreneurship and Good Governance Training Program at ADMU said that social entrepreneurs must introduce:
“Pattern-breaking social change”.
Then I remembered my father telling me that positive change can only happen, especially in the Philippines, when:
“People get sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
Is tremendous poverty not yet enough? Do we need more tantrums from Mother Nature before we act and take things seriously?
It’s time for us to get sick and tired of being sick and tired. We should be, in our own ways, be inducers of pattern-breaking social change.
I know that what I write is easier written, easier said, than done. And I know that I do not yet have the best answers to these issues I am writing here.
But I know that I’m in the process of finding the right answers, the right things to do. Maybe, this is my own little leap of faith, that since what I’m craving for is for the greater good including my good, perhaps Someone out there will guide me however invisible His hand is.
It’s time to change the status quo.
