I am currently working on my Economics Project, finalizing the layout, the captions and designs for my photojournalistic album.

It was Christmas Day, we went to Manaoag, Pangasinan to attend mass. On our way home, I snapped pictures along the way which I can use for this project. Now I am reviewing all the pictures and the image above struck me the most. Two children, sitting by a bridge, barefoot, eating whatever they got for Christmas.

I think this image is simply incomprehensible for a country who aims to be a first world in ten to twenty years. Incomprehensible for a country with the strongest performing currency in Asia.

These children should be in their homes, with their families but I think they simply cannot do that because it would mean an empty stomach for Christmas Day.
