I don’t know why I seem to have an affinity or a connection with OFWs lately, but I know that most if not every Filipino has a parent, a sibling, a son, a daughter, an uncle, an aunt, a cousin, or a close friend that is or was an OFW–a Filipino who went abroad to work. You reading this might even be one.
And so most of you know what I am talking about…
I am not much of a fan of Philippine movies, but I know that most of you have heard or even seen the movie Caregiver–a dramtic movie that was released this year, shown or is showing in the West Coast USA, Middle East ASIAN countries, as well as in other countries where there are OFWs. A trailer, synopsis & other info about this Filipino film is seen at this link.
I was doing nothing in particular today, so I popped in a DVD & I am currently watching this film (oops, may nag-iwan nitong pirated na dvd na to dito, sino kaya yun) & now out of the blue I just decided to make a blog post out of this film.
So to all OFWs out there, to all your family & loved ones. This one is for you. If only more people know how it really feels like to work abroad away from your family & loved ones.
I salute you modern day Filipino heroes! I share some of you who dreams that one day you can go back home & be able to live a good life in the country which we initially call home.
