I have been noticing that many Filipinos make very bad statements when they answer a question like : How safe is the Philippines ? , Why do Filipinos _____ ? . I have been to the Philippines many times and I have seen some bad things but I have seen a lot more great things that the Philippines has , if I had to pick one thing that makes the Philippines stand out has to be her people , the friendly nature and the pride that they have . I have been in other parts of Asia and the Philippines is in the top three . I understand that the Government is not the best when it comes to its peoples needs at time and money is kept by the very few , but I can not understand why and how Filipinos put down there home and worst let people who just do not know the philippines or had a bad experience or heard of one put the Philippines down. I am an American(whole life) and all The problems the US is having we will kick the sh** out of any group that may put her down. I do understand that it is just words and peoples showing their closed minds or hate but being a spouse of a Filipina and I only seen and felt a very small amount of the Beauty of the Philippines I defend her when a person makes unfair /untrue or ugly statement about the Philippines . Please do not take what I am saying the wrong way , if more Filipinos and people who have lived there a long time (only people who really and truly know the Philippines ) question a statement that they do not agree with , people may see the good not only the few bad things that gets reported . Like I said before I have a love for the US even when the people who's job is to take care of her act like their brains are kept in the wrong end of their bodies . The Philippines may be looked at as 3rd world by the rest of the world ,but in the heart of her people she should be 1st class nothing less. Thank you for hearing me out .
