The Helpful Pinoys   Leave a comment

I was reading the news on a lazy Sunday afternoon, when I found an article about  the Filipino crews who help passengers in a recent sea tragedy. Below is the excerpt from the “Definitely Filipino” website:

PROUD TO BE PINOY: The captain was one of the first to abandon ship and now there’s more and more stories in the European press that the Filipino crew members were the real HEROES of the cruise ship disaster. Here’s a quote from a French passenger:

“Those who helped us were cooks and stewards, all Filipinos. They roped themselves together to help us get down on the lifeboats. We were able to get in at the last moment,”


God bless the Filipino people and  Mabuhay!
