Construction Workers Earn Praise as They Honored the Flag While Standing at Scaffolding

These days, a lot of people have forgotten how to pay respect to the flag and the national anthem. Many just continue walking or simply ignore it when the national anthem plays.

This is the reason why a group of construction workers recently earned praise for honoring the flag as they stopped what they were doing to attend the flag ceremony at the school they were working at.

Aaron Niño Occidental shared the photo on his social media account, crediting Ma Froilin Joy Sj Occidental as the one who took the snapshot.

Salute sa mga construction worker ng San Gabriel Elementary School na huminto nung narinig ang pambansang awit. Picture [taken] last friday, Nutrition month,” Occidental wrote.

The three construction workers were assigned to fix some classrooms at San Gabriel Elementary School in Novaliches, Quezon City.

Upon hearing the National Anthem play as the school held its Opening Program for the Nutrition Month celebration, the three construction workers immediately stopped what they were doing. They stood up at attention on the scaffolding they were working on, put their right hand on their chest, and paid respect to the flag the entire time the song played.

The construction workers earned praise from netizens, with many saying that it was wonderful that they knew how to show respect to the flag and the National Anthem. Considering that many people don’t do that anymore, it was great to see these guys becoming an example to many.

A lot of netizens commented that these guys’ teachers back when they were kids should also be commended for instilling values and love for country in them.

But some netizens could not help but point out that while the construction workers paid respect to the flag, the person who took the photo did not! Oooops. But Occidental explained that the photo was taken to honor these guys and to make them a great example for others. Plus, the photo was taken with the left hand while the person was paying respect to the flag with the right hand.

Guy on the Way to Meeting Helps Badjao Family, Feels Happy to Feel That They’re His Family

He is on the way to a meeting with fellow Frontrow members, but one guy did not hesitate to help a Badjao family. His act of kindness went viral, with so many people touched by what he felt when he was dining with this bunch.

The still unnamed guy shared that he was riding a jeep on the way to Cubao for a BOM at the Frontrow office when he heard the jeepney driver shouting at the family to get off his vehicle. The driver repeatedly told the family to get off, but perhaps they could not understand what he is saying or they had become numb to this kind of treatment from people. Whatever the reason, the family did not get off the vehicle, leading the jeepney driver to become angrier and continue to shout at them to leave.

Taking pity on the family, the guy told the driver to let them ride as he would pay for their fare. He had tears in his eyes as he watched the family getting this kind of treatment from the driver.

When they reached Cubao, the family also got off, but he heard one of the kids saying he was hungry. He didn’t hear what the parents said to the kid but knowing this bunch most likely did not have money to buy food as they didn’t even have money for fare, he decided to treat them for lunch.

He was a bit disappointed that the family was turned away when they entered the restaurant, but he talked to the manager and told the crew he would vouch for the Badjao family as he would also buy their food.

While they were eating, he felt so happy when he heard them say that they were grateful for his help because most people drive them away. But he was happier that he while he was eating with them, he felt like he had a family even for just a little while.
