Filipino Physician Picks Life as Nurse in US what are people's thoughts on this? moreover, what are peoples thoughts on the entire phenomena that is the Philippine Diaspora? my parents immigrated here to the us in the 80's and are both physicians (feu grads), and i have always struggled with this idea. why as filipinos must we always sacrifice? to have to put necessity over opportunity or doing what is necessary in order to provide opportunity for future generations? is it truly in the hearts of all filipinos to return home; and as succeeding generations are born abroad, is this love being lost? i hope that filams, filipinos internationally, and filipinos in the philippines could comment and provide some insight on this. there is no right or wrong answers, and hopefully this dialogue would provide a better understanding for all of us who are connected in the struggle.
