A Bridge of Hope

A school is where dreams are built, futures are established, and children are nurtured to grow. These things happen in our beloved school of Maasin City National High School and I’m very proud of it. However, before you can reach our school there’s a tiny bit of a hurdle you have to negotiate. I’d like to point this out to the esteemed Government of our City here in Maasin because this is, as I’d like to call it, a bridge of hope. Maasin City National High School is one of the biggest schools in Maasin with no less than a thousand students and more or less 40 teachers. Everyday, the students employ a variety of ways just to get to school: Some do it by foot, by riding a motorcycle or by cab or by riding their own cars. Interestingly though, the students and teachers meet at a common point and that is the endless complaint about the bumpy ride they experience on their way to school. Add to that the breath taking crossing we make through a creaky bridge which has impressively withstood the test of time. This draws a disconnection between the commuters and the transport drivers who refuse to come here because of the painful difficulties mentioned above. In my five years of schooling in MCNHS, I have experienced for myself how tough traveling to our school really is. You can encounter a number of holes and speed bumps brought about by the fact that the area where the school stands and the area near it is a reclamation area formerly part of the sea and the road holes (Unfortunately not cared for) are where the corals and other marine life used to reside. The appearance of the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s building and the Maasin City Division’s Office has people wondering if when the Government will act in making the road and the bridge better and give the commuters, drivers and everyone using the area the comfort they duly deserve. Thankfully however, a proposal to solve that problem has been formulated by the City Government headed by Mayor Nacional Mercado and has passed its first reading. To close, I humbly ask those in our City Government to please pay attention and heed the cry of the Maasinhons especially the people who use the road to Maasin City National High School for a better bridge and road so that through this humble act of repairing the road and the bridge, dreams can come true, the next generation can flourish and Maasin’s dream of progress can become a glorious reality through this bridge of hope.
