Brain Drain

Posted on: July 6, 2005

Yes, that was in the news tonight. The Philippines is experiencing a heavy dose of brain drain. Filipinos are doing everything they can to find work and live in other countries. The opportunity is too much to pass up.

I, too, am thinking about working and living in other countries. Not because I don't like where I'm at right now, but because for the same amount of effort, I have a chance to earn more. Sure, being away from family and close friends is just one of the downside, but this is a sacrifice all are willing to make for a chance at a better future.

I am aware of the brain drain happening. It is an occurrence that slowly crept up on us, a testament to the state of the country's sad state of affairs. Right now, I can't sympathize. The circus that is government has outdone itself with this recent fiasco.

God help us.
