Oct. 2016 Rebelblood Inter-regional Art Exhibit – TUGOB Celebration at Ormoc’s Superdome, Ormoc City, Leyte, helping to establish a stronger stand for our compatriot fellow artists, providing all artists the chance to work with & learn from each other to further enhance, & promoting Solidarity & Unity amongst the union of artists.

Time is a precious gift; one life, one chance. We won’t be here forever but we are giving our all while we are around. I further appeal to my circle that may we continue to protect & fight for our mother nature & that may we never halt to selflessly devote & live our lives in the service, support, contribution & aid to humanity. We truly live when we work for the welfare of our fellowmen, yet it is when we volunteer our lives for their rescue that we have achieved the paramount comprehension of human bond.

Profoundly grateful for this life & this chance, & all the more deeply thankful to all compatriot fellow artists of Ormoc & to our entire humanists & atheists union for helping & functioning good with me, & especially to the remarkable leadership of HAPI Founder and Chairwoman Emeritus, Marissa Torres Langseth,  for keeping us all together & strengthening our stand as atheists stronger in this world. Inspired by all of you, my friends (religious & humanists / atheists), with your hero blood nobility & legendary altruism, I look forward to further keeping in touch & working with you in this year 2017 & for as long as I live.

With you in Solidarity,
