Jesse Robredo

Good Essays
Sec. Jesse Robredo, as one of the finest servants of the Philippines, his death was a big impact to the whole nation. It was like a sudden and unexpected death that nobody ever knew it would happen. As their Piper Seneca plane crashed off the shore of the Masbate Island, and so his family’s hearts were in pain. At first, his family was still hoping that the news has just mistaken, but after the intense search for Jesse’s body, he was found dead and his remains were brought by P-Noy to Naga City were his family and fellow citizen is waiting. Truly he was so loved by his people whom he served for he was adored by many of them especially his people in Naga were he serves as a Mayor for several terms. He was more than those superheroes such as Batman and Superman because he was a TRUE HERO-a hero who is not measured by the size of his strength, but by the size of his heart. His sudden death can be a big lost to the country for he was one of our great leaders. We are all mourning for it, but on the positive side, his death could have been a good thing if we will just let his legacy touch are hearts and made ourselves more productive in a way that we would start in taking steps to a brighter future just like his Tsinelas Leadership, “No frills, no kaartehan, but with a clear vision.”- Sec. Rene Almendras

Life can be unfair to Jesse at some points for he was gone that no one had expected it would be as early as that. But still, he was held bigger than life after his sudden death. It might be hard for us to be just like him. A good family man, a great leader, but it would be better for us if we would start to make heroes of ourselves. It’s not easy to find someone to see your best as what Piglet says but maybe if we would just go beyond the extraordinary things, we will never know you might be the next hero of your generation. http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/271218/news/nation/robredo-extolled-for-tsinelas-leadership Jose Rene D.

    The relationship between Richard Rodriguez and Richard Hoggart is supremely that of a student to a teacher with Rodriguez as the student and Hoggart as the teacher. In moments when Rodriguez says that Hoggart’s opinion of what a “scholarship boy” entails is “more accurate than fair,” Rodriguez is learning more as if he is a student (547). Of course Rodriguez now, after having written “The Achievement of Desire,” understands his place as a “scholarship boy” student; however, there are brutally honest aspects that Hoggart is able to recognize and Rodriguez does not want to acknowledge. Rodriguez lived through his education as a “bank,” as Paulo Freire would say, and there are many negative impacts that this had on his future and actual knowledge.…

    Rodriguez faces a few tensions in his personal experience such as being a "scholarship boy" as oppose to a well rounded student and and his life at home compared to a more friendly home environment. Rodriguez says that "I was a very good student, I was a also a very bad student. I was a scholarship boy, a certain kind of scholarship boy. Always successful, I was always unconfident. Exhilarated by my progress. Sad. I became the prized student - anxious and eager to learn. Too eager, too anxious - an imitative and unoriginal pupil." ( Rodrigues #283 ) Rodriguez describes himself here as imitating his teachers too much and being a perfect student instead of thinking for himself and taking in the knowledge he is given by his teachers and analyzing it and putting it to use. He is unoriginal and and uninteresting compared to a student who can use their knowledge in their own way and gets more involved. The other tension Rodriguez faces his the tension he has with his family, mostly his mother and father. At home his mother and father both support and encourage what he is doing very much but they didn't like the fact that he would always be in his room and the fact that the only thing he was involved with was school. "He permits himself embarrassment at their lack of education." (Rodriguez #286) This quote shows that Rodriguez's amount of knowledge of the english language and other subjects he had compared to his parents and therefore he was somewhat embarrassed by them and it created a tough home environment to live in because he didn't communicate much with his parents. This contrasts the home environment where their is a strong relationship between the family and their is communication.…

    Have you ever been given the chance to pick between a job that will make you win a lot of money in life or a job that will satisfy you as a career and passion? Luis had a passion for teaching ever since he was in high school teaching to 10 year old kids. “He decided to go into teaching nine years ago, between his sophomore and junior years in high school, when he worked in a summer camp”(143). Luis was raised in the largest city of the state, where he have deep roots with friends and family. For half a year he had felt like a slave as a paralegal in a large law firm, and another half year as a junior executive has only made him realize his desire to become a teacher. He got into the habit of coming home and saying ‘‘there goes another 8 hours of my life down the drain”(143). Finally after completing his B.A and receiving his teaching credentials, he decided to apply for a part time substitute teaching position until something came up. Soon because of the many retirements and the good impression he had earned with the school where he worked, they offered him a full-time teaching job. However, Sunset National Bank, a place where he applied, is offering him a job over 15 other candidates, “Sunset National Bank has chosen him over 15 other candidates for the trainee position because of his excellent academic background, fine references from his previous jobs, and outstanding interview” (144) . This opportunity would give him a slighter better paying salary, starting at $41,000 for the first year. In addition to his pay at the bank, where he will be promoted to loan officer, he will be receiving an additional $3,000 raise. Luis is now stuck in a position where teaching is the dream job he has wanted since High School, but he has also been given the opportunity of becoming a highly recommended banker, two choices that can be a very stressful decision to make. Luis should live up to his dream and become a teacher like he has…

    Growing up, people realize that around the time of reaching a mature state, education has affected their personal family life in one way or the other. With that being said, in his essay, “The Achievement of Desire”, Richard Rodriguez headed towards a path where he was unconsciously distancing himself from his family and becoming much more independent than he had expected. Rodriguez gives the reader a sentimental idea of the two contrary lives he had growing up, the life he had as a child, and the life he has as an educated man. He continued believing in his aspiration of how benefits of education can remarkably outweigh the past struggles of both his family and himself. Like Rodriguez, I also, in the past, found some form of solitude in my family life, and was able to partially see myself in his story of desirable triumph.…
