PLANKahan :)

"I can't even believe that I am blogging about PLANKING"

I browsed my timeline and saw tweets like PLANK Sinatra, PLANKlin Drilon, PLANKy Manzano, PLANK Magalona, PLANKie and Miel Pangilinan, PLANKenstein, Manny PLANKman Pacquiao and PLANK vs. Zombies with the hashtag #Plankahan...

I laughed out loud (and hard) at it, seriously! I thought maybe planking is just on twitter spotlight again...

But not until i checked the trending topic and found Anti-Planking Act of 2011...

I got interested about the story behind it and I searched it online and found out that this Anti-Planking Act of 2011 was initiated here in the PH by Rep. Winston Castelo in concern to safety of the Filipino youth. This was due to youth planking on streets for protests and rallies.

For me (in my sincerest opinion), Castelo's gesture about safety is good, but I agree to some of  the comments this issue earned especially on twitter (as i have checked) that there are bigger problems of this nation that needs high priority and importance. There's more ways, wider ways, on how we can give safety to the Filipino youth. As I believe that includes the fight to poverty and poor education quality which has been a homegrown problem ever since.

So as I think it will be best for our respected government to do what is needed to be done and it is best for our youth to PLANK AT THEIR OWN RISK.

*disclaimer: I DON'T PLANK... I will never try though.. hahaha!
