Complain, Vent, Name-Names, Comment!!! This Blog is for You!
Just in case anyone is wondering Wapatu is actually defined as “an expression meaning ‘wala pang tulog’;a person who did not sleep for at least 24 hours; a sleepy person.” This in a sense is relevant in that although “the government never sleeps”, they are basically sleeping on the job. In the case of this blog, Wapatu is an acronym representing, Will Anyone Pay Attention To Us?
I started this blog so that we can point fingers, name names and share our stories. The more we are aware of the “small changes” the more chance WE have of making a change. Then instead of wondering,“Will Anyone Pay Attention To Us? WAPATU, we can say somebody finally listened!!! Your Turn to Name Names……Comment Here
Turn on the TV, read the news online or in a newspaper. If you’re lucky you might encounter one uplifting, heartwarming story. People are so wrapped up with getting through life that it’s rare and in between that they take the time to be a “Good Samaritan.” Remember that term?
Although I don’t expect these comments to accumulate too quickly, I think those who take that extra step should be recognized. Tell us what you did or what someone did for you. Maybe in the long run, it will encourage us to become a society that truly works together to be the best that we can be. For, one good turn deserves another. Tell About One Good Turn!….Comment Here

There are simple solutions and those of us who need the help the most know what they are. Recently, in the Business Section of the St. Petersburg Times Newspaper there was this article,
which many of us have read, asking readers for ideas on “How Would You Fix the Economy?”
Dear Mr. President,
Patriotic retirement: There’s about 40 million people over 50 in the work force; pay them $1 million apiece severance with stipulations:
1) They leave their jobs. Forty million job openings – Unemployment fixed.
2) They buy NEW American cars. Forty million cars ordered – Auto Industry fixed.
3) They either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed.
I would like to believe that if enough of us contribute to finding a solution that would aid “The People” that someone might listen and pay attention to us. What Are Your Economic Solutions?….Comment Here
Every time you turn around there are new ideas and different recommendations on what we can do to “go green” at home. It would be a wonderful thing if each and every one of us would do every thing we can to help “save our environment.”
It would also be wonderful if we were all able to afford solar panels and hybrid cars. You would think affordability for such a worthy cause would be a priority. Apparently not!
There are, however, things we can all do. I’ve come across such a wealth of ideas, some easy to implement, some take some work and adjustment. My feeling is that if each of us does what we can, then maybe the small changes will make a big difference. Here is one avenue to pass along viable ideas. What Are Your Suggestions for Going Green?….Comment Here
It’s almost understandable, but certainly not acceptable that some people go through their lives as if they have no effect on those they encounter. Almost daily someone somewhere amazes me by being so oblivious to their actions. Simple things like saying, “thank you” when someone holds a door open for you has almost become obsolete. Maybe, we’re becoming a society that is so wrapped up in the stress of our day to day activities that we don’t open our eyes to what is around us. Possibly, with the wonders of technology we’ve become a society so removed from human interaction that so many, just don’t understand how they affect those around them. I’d like to use this post to list the things that people do that are so inconsiderate that they warrant mentioning. My hope is that, if you recognize yourself you will make a change in yourself to become a better person. It can make or break someone’s day!! Imagine a society of people that truly care about one another! What did they do to you?
