FPJ inspirasyon ng mga manggagawa

By: - 12/09/2019

 

Sa ika-15th death anniversary ni Fernando Poe Jr., ang hari ng Filipino movie, sa Sabado, December 14, ordinary workers will surely remember how “Da King” had inspired them.

They would look back and reflect on the impact he made in Philippine history and on their daily battle and survival as ordinary and powerless workers against oppression and hardship.

We are at a crucial point in our nation’s history where Mayor Digong expressed indescribable frustration upon realizing how deep the illegal drugs problem in the country is; how destructive partisan politics are; how virulent poverty is, and how deeply entrenched and selfish the oligarchs and the powers-that-be are.

It’s so bad that the Mayor has almost given up in utter exasperation by saying he is ready to die anytime soon with barely two-and-a-half years to go into his full term of office.

It is at this point that working people and their families miss FPJ’s inspiration to fight for what is right, to be decently brave, and to rise above oppression as he explicitly portrayed differently in his movies.

Kaya naman patok ang lahat ng pelikula ni Da King sa masa. Biruin mo, nagalit at nagkagulo ang mga manonood sa isang sinehan nang inapi nang husto ang isang character ni FPJ ilang taon na ang nakalipas. Sa aming barrio noon, ayaw nang lumabas ng sinehan ang mga manonood at paulit-ulit na pinapanood ang kanyang pelikula. Ganyan ang impact ni Da King
sa atin.

Sa anibersaryo ng kanyang pagkamatay sa Sabado, alalahanin nating mga manggagawa ang mga inspirasyon at aral ni Da King.

Workers and their families missed FPJ’s inspiration in times like these when their current hero has almost given up at a time when life’s hardships seem more of the same decades ago.
