Sometimes it does not matter that we have committed a mistake, it only matters that we learned from them and tried to move on with our lives. As people, especially during our younger years, we tend to make decisions that lead us to challenging situations.
These situations sometimes cause our friends and family to turn their backs on us. It also results to a broken future or the feeling of being helpless. But as we have been told time and again, we should always learn to pick ourselves up and face the world. We may fall hard, but the important thing is that we take the lessons from our failed experiences.
Though the world may seem apathetic at times, humanity amongst each of us still exist—despite people’s strong demeanors, the world is still a forgiving one at the end of the day. People, regardless of their background, are still welcoming of change, especially if it is for the better.
Over the years, we have seen, heard, and read inspiring stories of how people who have lost their ways have turned over a new leaf. These stories give us hope about the world, making us realize that it’s never too late to decide to be better.
The same could be said about the inmates at a municipal confinement in Consolacion. In a recent viral video, the said people are seen singing a graduation song as they attend their graduation. Several inmates from the said institution have just passed their accreditation and equivalency tests through the Alternative Learning System (ALS).
From the name itself, the ALS provides an alternative way of educating people even if they are inside the institution. This is a good way of making sure that despite the reasons of the inmates being placed behind bars, they are given opportunities to better themselves.
The video shows them singing the song “Pagsubok” which is very fitting for this milestone of their lives. As the song says, hardships are just that—struggles, and we shouldn’t give up the fight and instead, keep pushing forward with life.
This video has reached more than half a million views as of date, and netizens are overjoyed with the thought of these people graduating. Numerous congratulatory comments flooded the comments section along with kind and inspiring words towards the inmates.
True enough, it’s never really too late to change for the better. All you have to do is to persevere and make the right decisions
