The modern day hero is nowhere near Andres Bonifacio or Jose Rizal. He does not carry a sword; nor does he wield a pen to rally a revolution. He is largely unknown and unacknowledged. But his sacrifice is no less valiant – after all he carries the dream of his family and a country’s economic security (17 billion USD in remittances and a 12% in GDP) on his shoulders.
So how do you say ‘thank you’ to a hero? How do you give back to the 11 million overseas Filipino workers who are sustaining our nation?
