This Dad Sacrificed Himself For His Son – Great Parenting

#lightsaberph #padawan

Dear Young Padawan,

Napaka-swerte mo, yung tatay mo sobrang cool. Tinuruan ka niya humawak ng Lightsaber. It is an elegant weapon for a civilized age.

Cool pa ng kulay ng lightsaber mo, blue. It is Skywalker’s blue. Tapos, yung kay dad, yellow. Napakaganda ng wielding ninyo. Sa pag weave ninyo, para akong nanonood ng northern lights. Aurora. Napakaganda.

Kinakainggitan ka siguro ng mga kaklase mo. Yung mga dad nila, walang oras sa kanila. Yung mga dad nila, pag-uwi sa bahay; TV, kain, at tulog na lang ang nasa isip. Yung iba nga wala pang tatay.

Cherish mo na ang moment na to. Minsan ka lang bata. Minsan lang din may energy ang dad mo para makipaglaro pa sayo. Swerte mo talaga, yung dad ko, ganyan din e. Kotse naman pinag-uusapan namin.

Sa paglaki mo, tandaan mo ang moment na ito. Sa pagtanda mo, pakatandaan mo na ang pamilya ang una mong kakampi. Pag ikaw ay tatay na, sana, gawin mo rin ito sa anak mo – in one way or another.

Nakakainggit ka,
promking

HEIGHTENED PULSE-POUNDING ESCAPE AND SURVIVAL IN “THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT”

Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Zoë Kravitz, Miles Teller, Maggie Q and Ansel Elgort return in the most awaited book-to-film franchise in “Allegiant” where  Chicago is on the verge of an all-out civil war. The young warriors and heroes with Tris (Woodley) leading the troop -Four (James), Christina (Kravitz), Peter (Teller), Tori (Q) and Caleb (Elgort) sees them on a harrowing escape from the walled city, chased by armed guards loyal to self-appointed leader Evelyn (Naomi Watts).

Outside Chicago for the first time in their lives, the five find themselves being pursued by Edgar (Jonny Weston) through a toxic wasteland known as the Fringe before being rescued and escorted to the ultra-high-tech compound of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare.   Once there, Bureau mastermind David (Jeff Daniels) singles out Tris for being genetically “pure” and enlists her to champion his mysterious cause. While Tris receives special treatment, including access to “memory tabs” that enable her to relive her own family history, Four joins Bureau soldiers on a supposedly humanitarian mission to remove children from a ragtag Fringe encampment.

Discovering that David plans to use the Bureau’s astonishing technologies for inhumane ends, Tris hijacks his private aircraft and returns with her team to Chicago. Faced with a shocking betrayal, they must try to stop Evelyn before she unleashes a memory-erasing gas on the city’s entire population, including the Allegiant rebel force led by Johanna (Octavia Spencer).

“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” is directed by Robert Schwentke (“The Divergent Series: Insurgent,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife”) and based on the bestselling young adult novel “Allegiant” by Veronica Roth.

The filmmakers set out to bring Victoria Roth’s original vision to life once again even as they add fresh surprises to her dystopian saga. Brimming with new characters, landscapes and mysteries, “Allegiant” extends a Divergent universe that has already captivated millions of moviegoers. “One reason these stories resonate for young people particularly is that they wonder what their futures hold for them,” James muses. “Whether it’s conscious or not, young people think about, ‘What kind of world will I live in?’ I think that’s why so many people gravitate toward the Divergent stories.”

Although Allegiant remains consistent to the core values of the Divergent series, its heroes encounter new worlds and shocking revelations and the film raises the level of excitement to new heights. “Allegiant gives you a scale and a scope that you don’t get in previous films,” says producer Lucy Fisher. “There are so many things about this movie that excite us, including the action and the visuals. But my favorite part about this entire series is the characters and their relationship to each other. With Allegiant, I love that you’re on the edge of your seat, because there’s something going on every second.”

“Allegiant” opens March 9 in theatres nationwide from Pioneer Films.
