99th Baguio Charter Day Cartoon
by: Dina Leaño

With the goodwill to serve and protect her fellow neighbors, she gives her entire support and service towards the cleanliness and orderliness of their barangay.

“There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself,” is a quote that 58-year-old Esther Brillo of Barangay Loakan Liwanag, Baguio City always keeps in mind along with an endless list of thoughts on how to preserve the astonishing beauty of their place.

Amiable, valorous, and steadfast — these are just a few of the good qualities possessed by this industrious and good looking lady. This superb woman of vitality and meekness not only knows what fostering a culture of caring means but also shows it in her own way.

Every Saturday and Wednesday, the scheduled days in dumping garbage in our barangay, you will see her early in the morning segregating the garbage. She sees to it that the garbage is properly dumped so as not to cause any problem when it rains and floods or when animals try to scatter the garbage. She always does this so that the children will be protected against the wastes’ harmful effects.

She also roams around to see if the surroundings are clean and beautiful. Although she is already old, she never forgets to water the plants in the landscaped areas and sweep the dirt from the street.

She says we should take care of our environment and preserve its beauty and cleanliness for our own good. In addition, she says that “having a clean environment means a healthy life.”

She is one of those whom we should really be proud of.
