Help Lola Cevera Abuan

I just really hafta share this. Swear. This is from Rachel. This is the least I could do (for now).

Given the chance, I would also like to help Lola Cevera.

Kindly tell me how.

From Rachel:

Lola Cevera's frail body having difficulty pushing her cart.

“Lola Cevera Abuan” is a 100 year old woman who was pushing her cart along Greenmeadows Avenue at half past 12 noon today. I passed by her already and could see how frail her body was from my rear view mirror that I just had to go back and give her my lunch. So, I made a U-turn, parked my car and went down to talk to her. I asked her what she was doing there and where she was headed. She responded in a little tagalog saying “namamalimos po ako”(asking for alms) but she started speaking in Ilocano so it was difficult for me to understand her and aside from this, she has a hearing problem. I just handed her my food, gave a little amount to hold on to and made a gesture for her to eat. Then she asked if it was 12:00 noon already so I just nodded and told her to eat. I was both sad and happy to talk to her. Sad because this woman should be cared for at this age(She reminded me of my mom who was Ilocana whom I called right after I got home and told her about Lola Cevera. I was telling my mom should move more and continue her therapy so she would reach 100 years old..hehe) ...And I was also happy, because I saw her face light up the moment I gave her something, she kept on thanking me. I am just worried for Lola Cevera cos I found out she crosses C5 everyday. I don’t want her to be sideswiped or be a hit and run victim. Family and friends, I still would like to help Lola Cevera so I would like to ask a bit of favor from you. I hope this will reach “Ms. Vicky Morales of Wish Ko lang” and grant Lola Cevera something to help her get by, without having to walk several kilometers to ask for alms. I would be so grateful to all of you who will do Lola Cevera the favor of posting/sharing this on your wall. Thank you so much for your compassion and God bless us all. P.S. To Ms. Vicky Morales, I hope you can help Lola Cevera. I was able to pick up from her that she stays in San Roque St. in Bagumbayan along Industria. Thank you so much and more power to your show.

I feel like crying. It's Christmas....

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
