I recently watched a short film called “1945” by Unitel’s veteran producer-storyteller Jun Reyes (The Last Journey of Ninoy, Crying Ladies). In this film, he makes a trip down memory lane to tackle a love that transcends the test of time and shines brightly amidst the darkness of the Japanese war.
After crying for a good 5 minutes, I realized what the message of the film was. To protect the ones you love no matter what. We don’t really think about what will happen to our loved ones after we cross over to the other side (yes, im talking about death). As Filipinos we often fall prey to the bahala na mentality and refuse to be secure because the thought of dying and leaving a family behind is just plain scary.
Ganda ni Angel Aquino.
The film shows us that we need to accept that life’s circumstances do call for long term preparedness. If you haven’t gotten my point yet, what is wrong with you? Char. GET INSURED! I know medyo hindi bagay sa blog ko to post about life insurance stuff, but I’m choosing to spread the word on this advocacy because coming from a family which lost its prime breadwinner, I’m relieved my parents have been insured under Sun Life long before my dad succumbed to cancer.
That’s why my mom is one of its endorsers, actually.
We’re very thankful for Sun Life. And I’m very thankful I met Armand del Rosario yesterday. Chos. But, really, I met him yesterday – I was having lunch with my mom in The Fort and we bumped into him and his beautiful wife and daughter. He’s so pretty. Teehee. ANYWAY. It’s about time we start thinking ahead! So go ahead, watch the film, and reflect. Life is brighter under the sun <3
