Manny Pacquiao more than a boxer!

I was out on vacation last week so my hubby and I never got to watch the match between PacMan and DeLaHoya. I did however hear that the Philippines' very own, Manny Pacquiao, won another match that will certify and strengthen his rising star as one of the worlds best boxer ever.

But more than being a boxer, I see him as a persona that:

1. helps unite our country, the Philippines. He bridges my countrymen. The divide between the rich and poor of our country vanishes as soon as he enters the ring.
2. he acts as a peacekeeper. Crime and Traffic in Manila is drastically low on days of his match.
3. he is remains to be an inspiration. A vast number of my fellowmen is poor. Manny was once one and yet he has risen to be one of the most popular sportsmen in our country and in the world.

I commend this man for rising above poverty and making the most of his talents! More power Pacman!
