Posted by darbs on November 22, 2009
My dear loyal COMMENTATORS of the EXODIANS BLOG, due to my “hectic” schedule, I would not be able to reply to your comments – starting with WordCamp, Ibong Malaya, Four-Month Road Show and most likely this new entry. I might just as well be using some of my free time bloghopping instead of answering all the comments. Thank you for your understanding.
And now, it’s time to announce the winner of the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year after we flooded CNN with our votes. “Flood em’ with our votes!” as the story goes.
Announcer: “Ladies and Gentlemen it is my great privilege to announce the CNN Hero of the year…”
The room was so quiet that you could hear the “Sound of Silence”.
Congratulations Efren Peñaflorida
(CNN) — Efren Peñaflorida, who started a “pushcart classroom” in the Philippines to bring education to poor children as an alternative to gang membership, has been named the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year. (Source: CNN Heroes)
