Why “tsinelas”

What are we looking for? Today, we are looking for very simple values. We must return to the original values of the Filipino race. Remember the story of the king who said, “Lalakad ako. Ayaw kong masaktan ang paa ko. Carpet the whole kingdom!” What a waste of money because what the next king did was gumawa ng tsinelas, cut out in the carpet the form of his foot. Why cover the whole kingdom with carpet when you can protect your feet and spend only so much? Protect your feet; do not cover the kingdom with carpet. We don’t have to cover the whole world. Begin with ourselves.
