a legend on the origin of paoay lake in paoay, ilocos norte
long ago, there was a beautiful village situated on a verdant tropical land. the people living in the village were known for being simple, hardworking and god fearing. these humble villagers built a church out of their skimpy earnings to worship and show respect to their god.
years passed and the village prospered. the people became rich; their wealth has been reflected through their ornate houses, extravagant clothing and glittering jewelries. as pride lingered on every resident, rivalry also sets in. the people worked even more hard to acquire things more than the others. being very rich, the people forgot to respect god as jealousy took the place of good will. the church was no longer a place of worship but it became an avenue to display the townspeople’s vanity. whilst the rest of the village residents spent their lives in worldly competition, a couple remained simple and god-fearing. one night an apparition appeared and told them that the village will be destroyed by a flood. the following day, the couple warned their neighbors and told them to revert for them to be spared from the flood. the villagers did not heed their warning but laughed at them. they continued what they’re doing and mocked the couple accusing them of envy. that night, the humble couple heard a voice telling them to leave the village early in the morning. the voice instructed them to go as far as they can and never look back; most especially when they hear a loud thunder and noise.
the next day, they couple prepared early and left the village. while on their way, they heard a loud clap of thunder followed by rampaging waters. the villagers were awakened but their shrieks and cries were resounded and died as they were submerged in a pool of muddy water. the fleeing couple was shaken by these cries and loud rumblings. unconsciously, the woman turned back to look at the village. in an instant, the woman fainted as the husband tried to drag her but they both turned into stone. as years went by, a beautiful lake emerged at the place where the village sank; and is now the famous paoay lake.

the movie entails about the life of the young ones who suffer from national crises. it all starts with the narration of the painter about life of the children, as the character of his master piece of the last supper painting. the children in the painting have different stories in life. they are being abused and used for survival, who suffers from irresponsible parents, and putting their life into risk in order to feed their self. at the same time the painter tries to convey to the viewers on how to be sensitive to the children who are not worth of the life they have today. he tries to express that we are not blind of not seeing the environment of poverty.
at present i know that poverty everywhere really existing, and who suffer from it are the young ones. i’ve experience the situation where in i’m kind of stupid to be hesitated to express my pity for those who are asking for money, to sustain their needs. i’m kind of inconsiderate of what they are begging. it’s just that i am thinking of myself but not about the situation they have now, being less fortunate of the society.
i have also experience a situation where in i’m kind of judgmental person. i judge them to be bad and do bad things if they will approach you. i feel afraid of them; i think that they will take my cell phone, bag, my money in my pocket, or any thing when i am walking on the street.
at the same time i’ve experience were i am taking my lunch break, i saw children who are facing in front of me begging for the food i ‘m eating. and what a damn thing i do to them, i surely eat my food until the chicken is flesh-less and leave the plate with a bone of the chicken, without thinking that there is a young individual that will get it and eat it just to feed there hungriness.
even at home, i am so choosy in the food at the table. i will not eat if i do not like the viand that is being served on the table. but don’t mind that i’m lucky enough that there is a blessing, a food that nourished me to survive in this world. maybe i’m just thinking about my hungriness, but not for them who are hungrier.
i realize after watching the movie, a flash back of what i did to the hungry individual, that i am really bad person, self-centered and damn. i think that i am a person without morality, feel enriching, and annoying; and pretending to be blind about the things that need my help. i am not worth to live in this place if what i think is just the world and me. i am so sorry for that. what i did is really a big sin to the society, to the world and to god.
i should do even just a little thing, or the things that i really can for the welfare of those in need. i should struggle a lot rather than them because they are not obliged to do so. it is not there responsibility to travel from one place to another just to seek for money.
i am educated enough, my range of thinking is good enough, and i already know how to start things move but don’t know how to move for those who do not experience what i do. i am aware about many things about poverty, i feel lose for them but just stop there, no action is being implemented.
we are not here in this world just to understand for the things that must be understood, but to act what we really can.
i suggest that we as a human who live with better nourishment should give even just a little time for them, by earning money, and maybe someday we can build a better living for them. we should share wholeheartedly, not just in terms of costly things but also in terms of caring and loving, as how god loves us and all of us.

"a walk to remember" is a love story so sweet, sincere and positive that it sneaks past the defenses built up in this age of irony. it tells the story of a romance between two 18-year-olds that is summarized when the boy tells the girl's doubtful father: "jamie has faith in me. she makes me want to be different. better." after all of the vulgar crudities of the typical modern teenage movie, here is one that looks closely, pays attention, sees that not all teenagers are as cretinous as hollywood portrays them.
the singer mandy moore, a natural beauty in both face and manner, stars as jamie sullivan, an outsider at school who is laughed at because she stands apart, has values, and always wears the same ratty blue sweater. her father (peter coyote) is a local minister. shane west plays landon carter, a senior boy who hangs with the popular crowd but is shaken when a stupid dare goes wrong and one of his friends is paralyzed in a diving accident. he dates a popular girl and joins in the laughter against jamie. then, as punishment for the prank, he is ordered by the principal to join the drama club: "you need to meet some new people." jamie's in the club. he begins to notice her in a new way. he asks her to help him rehearse for a role in a play. she treats him with level honesty. she isn't one of those losers who skulks around feeling put upon; her self-esteem stands apart from the opinion of her peers. she's a smart, nice girl, a reminder that one of the pleasures of the movies is to meet good people.
the plot has revelations that i will not reveal. enough to focus on the way jamie's serene example makes landon into a nicer person--encourages him to become more sincere and serious, to win her where she approaches him while he's with his old friends and says, "see you tonight," and he says, "in your dreams." when he turns up at her house, she is hurt and angry, and his excuses sound lame even to him.
the movie walks a fine line with the peter coyote character, whose church landon attends. movies have a way of stereotyping reactionary bible-thumpers who are hostile to teen romance. there is a little of that here; jamie is forbidden to date, for example, although there's more behind his decision than knee-jerk strictness. but when landon goes to the rev. sullivan and asks him to have faith in him, the minister listens with an open mind.
yes, the movie is corny at times. but corniness is all right at times. i forgave the movie its broad emotion because it earned it. it lays things on a little thick at the end, but by then it had paid its way. director adam shankman and his writer, karen janszen, working from the novel by nicholas sparks, have an unforced trust in the material that redeems, even justifies the broad strokes. they go wrong only three times: (1) the subplot involving the paralyzed boy should have either been dealt with, or dropped; (2) it's tiresome to make the black teenager use "brother" in every sentence, as if he is not their peer but was ported in from another world; (3) as kuleshov proved more than 80 years ago in a famous experiment, when an audience sees an impassive closeup, it supplies the necessary emotion from the context. it can be fatal for an actor to try to "act" in a closeup, and landon's little smile at the end is a distraction at a crucial moment.
those are small flaws in a touching movie. the performances by moore and west are so quietly convincing we're reminded that many teenagers in movies seem to think like 30-year-old standup comics. that jamie and landon base their romance on values and respect will blindside some viewers of the film, especially since the first five or 10 minutes seem to be headed down a familiar teenage movie trail. "a walk to remember" is a small treasure
