AJ in the Philippines

Sankofa Lite | Sept – Oct 2013
I never fully understood the saying “Home is where the heart is,” a popular quote from Gaius Plinius Secundus (also known as Pliny, the elder) a roman naturalist, commander, and poet , until during a recent vacation trip. Imagine a life where there was no home to call your own with no city, town, or village to call your own. A life where basic necessities such as, food, water, and shelter are luxurious items. Most people are lucky enough only to hear of such abject misery from the media such as the news, newspaper articles, and on famous social media sites such as YouTube and Facebook. For the people of a small Filipino village, that is not the case.
