Soldier in need, Soldier indeed?

" A couple of days ago, an embarrasing scene was played on tv when a

flip general was carried on someone else shoulder so he wouldnt get wet when
he stepped on a banka boat . the american officer on the other hand waded
on the water and stepped on the banka without any help. See the
symbolism on why the philippines have problems?"

This was a forwarded message from my Uncle who was residing in Toronto Canada. The subject title is "Hindi Dapat Tularan".

I was really surprised and sadden as I saw this picture as well as the indicated message elaborating that the soldier that was being carried was a Filipino Citizen and the other was foreign one.
That Filipino soldier's action is a big shame for us. What do you think that foreign soldier thought as he saw that scenario?

What’s happening now a day? Supposedly, soldiers should serve us. Not us, serving them. They have the responsibility to serve and protect the state as well as its countrymen. So if ever there is a flood like that then the soldier should be the one carrying that civilian man.

In addition, all soldiers carry out a wide range of duties. From serving their country, prepare for a combat, work in a close-knit team and to discipline other. But they should learn to discipline their selves first.

I know I don’t have the rights to judge this soldier. Like the creator of this Forwarded Message I’m just an observer.

But let us use this one as a subject for realization of what really is the current status of our country's governance. Good or Bad?

For a while, allow things thy happen and with this let us just wait for the karma (either good or bad) to make its way out.
