In the social concern, MDN can become our source of information. All the events surrounding us are available. They are provided for us. Social activities are catered for us by the beloved MDN. I am not the Filipinos but I have learned a lot of the Philippines social activities just by reading the MDN.
In the economic point of view, many kinds of coverage are presented. MDN can make us well-versed with the economic knowledge. I got the knowledge about the information of economic development. I know about the starting program of infrastructures being developed in the Philippines. Infrastructures are the most beneficial for the nation and prosperity.
Infrastructures provide the people not only job abortion but also mobility of the people and goods as well as services. For example, when roads are built, people are made easy. They are easy to mobile. Products can be moved from the warehouse to the users smoothly. People can move by enjoying the roads that at available. Yet, most of the developing countries, infrastructures are really the crucial problem. And, even I am not in the Philippines; I know this development by the government. I know this by reading the beloved MDN.
In the politic point of view, I have learned a lot about the Philippines from MDN too. I also know the political affairs from the beginning of the presidential election in the Philippines. I got knowledge about the presidential campaigns. I also followed the progress of this process of presidential campaigns and election. All these have been available in our beloved MDN.
I know all aspects of lives. I have learned the aspects of cultural dimension. I have got the information about the aspects of social lives. I have been enlightened with the aspects of the Filipinos’ cultural and social lives. They are all available in our beloved MDN. Therefore, MDN is really the source of reading materials for all. It is for all people. It is even for other nations.
In terms of education, I believe that MDN has educated all the people. MDN has made the Filipinos enlightened. The people have been enlightened by reading the MDN articles. Articles are about the knowledge of social concern. It is about the social lives. It is about cultural aspects. It is about economic development of the country. And, these are the efforts of literacy. It is literacy for the people. It is literacy for all Filipinos. But, it is also literacy for other nations about the Philippines.
Education is not merely formal in the schools. Education is not solely in the campuses. Education is not just provided by the schools and campuses. It can be obtained from some sources of reading materials. And, the Mindanao Daily News is the source of that effort. It is the effort of enlightening the people. And, it is the effort of literacy. Mindanao Daily News is our source of many kids of knowledge. Happy Anniversary Mindanao daily News.
