The Department of Tourism recently released an inspiring video showing Filipino’s everyday kindness in the midst of public health emergency.
The tribute clip is accompanied by the Eraserheads’ song “With a Smile” composed and sung by Ely Buendia.
“We thank Ely Buendia, who composed “With a Smile” for the legendary band, the Eraserheads, for generously allowing the use of his composition to pay them tribute. Singer and songwriter Bea Lorenzo, whose grandfather and father are medical doctors, performs the reworking of the classic anthem,” the DOT captioned.
“Filipinos are known for their smiles. Even if we can’t see the smiles behind the masks, their warmth can be felt in acts of compassion and kindness.”
“As we wait out the end of this challenging time, let us never forget to show the world who we truly are: a nation of kind, caring, and compassionate people,” it added.

With God's mercy & grace this too shall pass. We smile as one. We love as one. We heal as one.”
“I cannot find the right adjectives/words. So much has been said. In these trying times, we Filipinos still find ways to smile.”
“We can do as one if everyone will do his or her own share. Thank you to all the people who work and risk their lives for our fellowmen. God bless.”
