If Only

Why do Ateneans and Lasallians despise each other?

For as long as I can remember, they’ve been at it for years and years, kicking each other’s nuts like immature little tykes. What’s the big deal anyway? Should we let the spirit of competition ruin our relationships with our fellowmen?

Imagine if the two schools would unite as one towards one dream… What message would it send out to everyone? It would send out a message of hope, that maybe, there is still hope left in our country today, that there is still a chance to become truly one.

And what would it inspire? It would inspire initiative for everyone to accept each other’s differences and acknowledge each other’s similarities. It would inspire the opposition and administration bureaucrats to work together for those who chose them, and not for their personal gain. It would inspire the nationalists and socialists and extremists to reach a compromise and live in harmony instead of throwing bombs at each other every now and then. It would inspire the everyday man to work not only for himself but also for his countrymen. It could even inspire world peace!

Just think of it, if only…
