62 assaults.. in the entire country?? Are you mad? Obviously there's something terribly wrong with that statistic. Why bother putting up stats that don't have complete information?? I live in Ireland and according to NationMaster there are over 9,000 assaults over here! Obviously, the Philippines would have way more assaults than Ireland.

We've always pray for transformation and global progress but mostly it becomes a escape goat from responsibility. Generally, the world chose to believe in God, other say god or gods but did it bring significant differrence? It's time now that we act on what we believe for believing is insiparable to acting.
