For majority of the Filipinos who live under the poverty line, the greatest gift and treasure that parents can pass on to their children is education, a key to a better life.
It can be noted that a few years ago, a photo of a crying father wearing medals went viral online. It was John Carlo Pasigay's story.
His father is a porter, or someone who helps passengers carry their bags and luggage in exchange for a small amount. JC posted a picture of his father wearing his medals,as a tribute to him.
Although they are poor, JC's father made sure that JC would have the quality education he needed. Prior to his graduation, JC's father was diagnosed with cancer and despite being inflicted with the disease he still supported JC all the way.
And his efforts did not go in vain.
JC was able to graduate as a class valedictorian at the Philippine Normal University, with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.
Their insipiring story was featured in several shows including Korina Sanchez's Rated K.
A salute to all loving and hardworking fathers and the children who work hard to make them proud.
