Courage is Not the absence of Fear, but Rather the Judgment that Something is More Important than Fear

Sa totoo lang, kahit na mukha akong matapang, may mga kinatatakutan pa rin naman ako. Siyempre, alam naman nating lahat ang clout kapag nasa Central Student Council ang isang estudyante; he has the capacity and chance to earn as much connections and clout. At alam naman natin ang kaya nilang gawin. Kaya kung ikukumpara sa kanila, I am nothing larger than a louse.
Pero sabi nga sa Princess Diaries na pelikula, “Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.” Ito ang paniniwala ko at this point. When I did the action, of course I felt afraid. But upon realizing that I was telling the truth, fear disappeared. And even though I know that Mr. Villasenor has all the power to exterminate me, and that my future now lies at his hands, but I have the truth, and the truth’s side is God’s side.
I was overwhelmed by the truckloads of comments that registered in my good friend’s deviantart account. Ibig sabihin, hindi lang ako ang nakakakita. Marami ang nakakapansin, but they don’t talk about it. And I understand them; the big fish are always on the watch; the CSC and the LSC are a bunch of authoritarians. Ayaw nila ng napupulaan ang mga mali.
Hindi biro na mag-amoy ammonia ang Beato Angelico. Hindi birong umakyat ng limang floor bitbit ang mahigit isang kilong art equipment. Hindi biro ang hindi pansinin ng student council. Yun ang nirereklamo ko! The incompetence of the Local Student Council to address these concerns because they were too busy doing some other things while we altogether suffer the ammonia-like smell and walking flanks of stairs with kilos of equipment.
Ang sinasabi ko, BILANG STUDENT COUNCIL, HINDI NAMAN SILA ANG DIREKTANG RERESOLBA NG MGA PROBLEMA. PERO SANA MAN LANG, IPAGLABAN NILA TAYO! TUMUPAD SILA SA MANDATONG IBINIGAY NG MGA ESTUDYANTE SA KANILA! BE TRUE TO THEIR PROMISES DURING THE CAMPAIGN!
Kaya kung anuman ang kahahantungan ng isyung ito, nagpapasalamat ako na nabigyan ako ng pambihirang pagkakataon na katawanin ang CFAD studentry. Handa na ako. I know they will reach for the stars in the heavens in the name of my total destruction, but facing this battle on behalf of the CFAD students. I may not live forever, but they have not lived at all.
THEY HAVE BETRAYED OUR PROMISE TO US! AND BECAUSE OF THIS BETRAYAL, I WILL HAVE TO BE LIABLE!
FIGHT TO STOP STUDENT PERSECUTION BY THE CENTRAL STUDENT COUNCIL AND THE CFAD STUDENT COUNCIL! STAND UP AND TAKE A POSITION!
