Efren Peñaflorida, The CNN HERO of the year

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.

The Announcement::

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…”

Everyone was so quiet...

The room was so quiet that you could hear the “Sound of Silence”.

And the winner is!

Efren Peñaflorida

The 2009 CNN Hero of the Year!

Congratulations Efren Peñaflorida
