CNN Heroes

>> Monday, November 16, 2009

We were watching ABS CBN news about our very own Efren Peñaflorida making it to the top ten of CNN Heroes when my lil' boy was asking me what CNN Heroes are. He only knows national heroes and his favorite heroes like Batman, Spiderman and Superman. I told him those people are the real alive heroes of our times who do extraordinary things and gone out of their way to help people especially those who need it the most. The news include teaching the viewers how they can access the site and how to vote.

Of course I was touched by Efren's story of educating the streetchildren by way of mobile school. He chose to educate the children in the slum areas. As my Mom was a retired teacher I know fully well the sacrifices of teachers and this one is way beyond the normal ones. Of course I voted for Efren Peñaflorida though I appreciate all the extraordinary people who top the CNN Heroes' list alongside Efren. Anyway here are the complete list of nominees:

1. Brad Blauser
2. Jordan Thomas
3. Doc Hendley
4. Jorge Munoz
5. Budi Soehardi
6. Roy Foster
7. Betty Makoni
8. Andrea Ivory
9. Derrick Tabb
10.Efren Peñaflorida

They're all heroes and winners for me. I just have to vote for which I think is the best. For the top ten's heroic deeds visit CNN.
