Tribute Message about Pentasi B Global Humanitarian Mission and Vision
Being thrust and have grown into community services, I am well aware of so many humanitarian problems in our world thus paved the way for me to be more compassionate and caring.
Meeting the Father of and Founder of PENTASI B Doc Penpen Bugtong Takipsilim ,I was touched by his passion as a poet. But my heart was caught unaware, captured by the Pentasi B Global Humanitarian Mission and Vision.
I thought composing, writing poems will just remain one of my hobby when I do not want to get bored or when I feel I need to write down my thoughts. As I have not wished to publish anything of my poems.
My life face another big challenge upon meeting Doc Penpen. I felt awed by his passion, its vision and mission that is to inspire the world, to promote peace, global healing, build friendship through poetry. His words, his personal messages for me opened up my heart to be an ambassador of World Peace, to make Poetry that touch humanity and Global Healing.
It is well known to the more than 10k members of Pentasi B and to all who are made aware of the existence of it, that Pentasi B family is a FAMILY”. A BIG, BIG Worldwide Family of Poets and Poetess… and I am humbled to be a member of this family. But I am gas up too, embracing its Global Humanitarian Mission and Vision.
It dawned on me, I can do more, I can reach more if I actively participate with the Pentasi B’s endeavors and advocacies.
I have known that “PEN” is mightier than the sword”, for the one who spoke of it is my favorite National Hero of my country, Dr. Jose Rizal. Pentasi B does not ask money to feed the poorest of the poor, to seek funds to build schools to cater to the children living in remote places. They also do not call for fund raising to fight for inhumane activities. But Pentasi B uses a “SWORD”, mightier than any riffles, guns and bombs. Its’ PEN.
When Pentasi B members start posting, reading, reciting, publishing poems, it is like a bomb, it is like a 2 edged sword that cuts through man’s heart, piercing the minds and soul in every poetic, deliberate or un-deliberately being uttered or written, it is liberating, touching, capable of making tears to fall, capable of putting a smile on a unsmiling tight lips or a hearty laugh on a closed twisted mouth, capable to turn a stonehearted man to also start writing down his thoughts and turned into a poem. Capable to make a child scribble their thoughts in a childish words but full of enthusiasm and childlike faith.
Pentasi B enabled men and women, ordinary or high calibres to create and touch lives through poetry.
Pentasi B inspire the world, inspire humanity to act responsibly, compassionately to the rising population of humanitarian problems, crisis human face each and every minute of the day.
Pentasi B Global is doing the impossibles. PENTASI B GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN will help our less fortunate brethren to hold their heads high instead of teaching them to keep their heads low.
