Kape’t Tinapay

“Sino pang magtutulungan, kundi tayo rin. Kudos sa mga pulis, tanod, doctors, nurses and for those na naging sandata ng bansang Pinas laban sa COVID-19.”

This is a story of my mom, who is a nurse. Kudos sa mga frontliners!

My mom travels over 100km away para makapagreport sa ospital na pinapasukan niya. Kasama niya yung tatay namin na naghahatid sa kanya dahil wala nang bumabyaheng public transport. So, they have to leave my sister kina lola at ako ang mag-isa sa bahay.

Noong nag grocery yung nanay at tatay ko, kumuha yung nanay ko ng maraming kape at tinapay. Sa isip nang tatay ko, stock sa bahay dahil nga mag-isa lang ako at wala akong quarantine pass. Si ako makakalabas para bumili ng pagkain.

As they were on their way home, sa check point papasok sa bayan namin, of course protocols muna. Pinakita ng mom ko yung ID niya as a frontliner. Makakaraan sila.

My mom picked the paper bag na may mga kape at tinapay at binigay sa mga tanod na almost 24hrs na palang hindi nakakauwi. Noong nakita nila yung paper bag, lahat sila tumayo. At nag-‘thank you’.

See? Sino pang magtutulungan, kundi tayo rin. Kudos sa mga pulis, tanod, doctors, nurses and for those na naging sandata ng bansang Pinas laban sa COVID-19.

Malalampasan natin to! “Leaves will soon grow in the bareness of trees, and all will be alright in time,” sabi nga ng Ben&Ben. It just simply means na, babangon tayo!
