I've recently been made aware that there's a booklet that's been making the rounds in Metro Manila that has been dubbed as something that "every Filipino who loves his country should get hold of and read, and hopefully put the points it raises into practice, in order to help our nation." It's called Twelve (12) Little Things Every Filipino Can Do To Help Our Country by Alexander Ledesma Lacson.

The reason why I'm posting this here is because the number one rule in this booklet is quite relevant to Huli Ka!:

  1. Follow traffic rules -- Why is that the most important? The answer is simple. Traffic rules are the simplest of our laws. If we learn to follow them, it will be the lowest form of national discipline that we can develop. Since it is totally without monetary cost, it should be easy for us to comply with, and therefore should provide a good start.
Hopefully, Twelve Little Things... will help the typical Metro Manilan realize that it really is simple to follow traffic rules, and that the impact of doing so will significantly improve this aspect of our lives.
