"Should Filipinos Dream of Becoming OFW’s?"


I want this to be a healthy debate. Sasagot ako at sana kayo din po ay magshare ng mga saloobin and opinions niyo sa pamamagitan ng pagcocomment. I want your ideas and inputs. Engaging minds daw tawag dito.

This thoughts, I've been thinking many days ago. Now lang ako nagkaroon ng pagkakataon para mapost ito. I've have read the following comments ng aking kaibigan na si Nebz sa blog ni The Pope.

"This post actually got me thinking hard.

Pangarap na nga ba talaga ng lahat ng Pilipino ang maging OFW?

Nagsisikap nga ba ang mga kabataan na makatapos sa pag-aaral upang 'makapag-abroad'?

Pangarap nga ba talaga nati'y gawing OFW ang bawat miyembro ng ating pamilya?

I actually didn't realize this until I read your post. Kahit dun sa PEBA entry ko, hindi ko napansin na lahat ng mga kabataan sa kwento ko ay nangangarap mag-abroad pagkatapos mag-aral.

This for me is scary."

Kahit dito sa Saudi I’m proud of our Filipino nurses.
It bothers me though that while reading your piece, parang I’m developing this thesis that being OFW is now a ‘dream’ rather than an ‘excuse’ to alleviate us from poverty. Hmmmm….
Here’s a penny for your thoughts: Should Filipinos dream of becoming OFW’s?

I like your entry and I especially liked this passage: "I am proud to be one of these so called “heroes” but ironically, I don’t want to be that hero for long. I am looking forward of that day that I no longer have to work overseas. Presently, I am struggling so hard to attain my goal of becoming the hero of my own children and my children’s children." 

That for me should be the goal of all OFWs. To finally be a hero at home with the family. 

Congratulations. You'll be in my top 10 for sure.
