When I checked my facebook this evening, I noticed something quite different.
Almost everyone has already changed their profile pictures to their favorite cartoon characters when they were young.
Then I received a pm from my kuya...
"Change your facebook profile picture to a cartoon character from your childhood and invite your friends to do the same. Until monday(Dec.6) there should be no human faces on facebook, but an invasion of memories. This is for the anti-violence against children."
I usually ignore forwarded messages. But for this... I thought for awhile...
"This is a nice thing to do actually... try ko nga."
Although I am so unsure if this thing would really help stop the violence against children, I decided to share this to my friends anyway.
If it is really about helping the advocacy for our young children to be protected, that would be great! But if not, and if this is only a common form of chain messages from a creative source, well thanks to him because even though it sounds a little bit awkward, we can't deny it is still fun to reminisce the good memories from our childhood, Diba? He reminded us how we, the grown-ups today have changed from those times when we use to enjoy the cartoon characters from television.
During those times, we would cry for the remote control if Dad had to change the channel from Doraemon to the local news in the evening. We go home early from school just to watch our favorite afternoon anime series of our very hero Son Goku from Dragon Ball Z. We would even stay uplate at night just to sneak a moment to watch Power Rangers. The Digital Monsters every Friday was the topic of the classroom's "chismis" on an early Monday morning. We would buy the latest game cards and pogs to play with our friends. Sometimes we would play as the lead characters and say their lines in a little tree house at the backyard. In the middle of the class, we draw our favorite characters at the back of our notebook if we find the lesson so boring. And sometimes we forget to eat meals on a weekend cartoon marathon.
sigh! OH how i miss those days!
One of my favorite cartoon character is Judy Abbott. Her story originated from the novel "Daddy Long-legs" by an american writer Jean Webster. If you know her story you could really relate to me.
She was an orphan who dreamed of having a good life, education, and a family.
I just love her passion for writing that's why i decided to choose her as my favorite cartoon character.
simpleng pagpapalit ng primary photo lang naman yan eh. wala namang mawawala kung tutuusin.
