Riding in this trolley is neither for the faint-hearted fellows nor for the adventurous ones because danger can happen anytime as the train still operational. I was quite distressed and concerned, seeing this group of people, taking rides without being mindful of their lives just to save a little money for the fare. I can’t blame them, though. Many Filipinos belong to the less fortunate classes of people in the society, who by all means will take the risk just to save a single peso even if it means endangering their own lives. I couldn’t take a stand on it since I’m not the right person to help them and only I share to them my concern, pity and prayers that for every day, they’ll be safe.
This poverty-stricken scenario is a living effect of the hefty dose of corruption in the country.
