Howie Severino's Documentary on a Five-Year-Old Filipina

Saw this read from my kababayan over at SideTrip. The post is about Howie Severino's documentary on "children striving to see without eyes." It specifically focuses on Aleeia Maclit, a five-year-old blind Filipina. I admire Aleeia's spirit! Take note of some of her accomplishments:

  • - she can operate a computer with a talking keyboard
  • - sings in Filipino and English
  • - and outtalks Howie!

In my opinion, the post isn't just about Aleeia. It's about life and how one finds beauty in it - how one embraces it. Read more about Aleeia Maclit, our five-year-old kababayan. It's an inspiring read. And I kid you not!

kuya les! val to..

"Minsan sinabi nya na dun tayo kase masaya/maingay, tapos hindi nya alam na magulo at hindi naman masaya yung lugar na gusto nya puntahan- parang naisip ko na sa mga mata ng batang bulag para sa kanya masaya at maganda lahat dahil bulag sya sa katotohanan pero na-isip ko din na meron palang maganda sa mga bagay na simple, hindi natin nakikita ang mga bagay na pwedeng magpasaya sa atin dahil bulag tayo sa mga bagay na gusto lang natin hindi sa mga magagandang bagay na ibinibigay sa atin " - nirevise ko lang to' parang ganun, yung interview sa sister ng batang(babae) bulag. ang galing talaga ng i-witness...

Very well said, Val! It is true, life is beautiful. It is how we look at it and view its challenges. Sa totoo lang, kadalasan, tao pa ang nagpapa-complicate ng mga bagay, di ba?

Thanks for dropping by, kaibigan!

You got that right, Richard! And I'm a big fan of Howie! With regards to Maja, I don't know her. :)

Thanks for blogging about her. Her story is indeed very inspiring and a fitting reminder to all of us that no barriers will stop us from achieving what we want if we really pursue them. Thanks again, my kabayan :-)

Sometimes people fail to count their blessings. More often than not, they only fully realize the beauty of life at the last moment. Am glad you liked the post, Bill.
