A poor old man selling sign pens near the old City Hall in Bacolod City has gone viral after a netizen posted his heartbreaking photo.
He used to sell these sign pens to students, but with face to face classes having been suspended, the old man still kept on selling pens.
Fortunately, a kindhearted lady helped him and even invited him to eat at a Chinese fast-food chain.
Initially, the man refused to eat because he did not have a face shield, eventually, he relented and dined with the woman.

Filipino resilience is evident in times of crisis. Many have shown that they can make it through a pandemic. Filipinos abroad have also shown this kind of resiliency. This old man clearly showed this trait. He still tried his best to ensure that he would have a teeny bit of income in order to survive the pandemic.
One very good example of Filipino resilience is how people looked for ways and means to live after they lost their jobs because of unexpected circumstances. For instance, a stewardess turned to online selling when she lost her job. She showed that there would always be a way.
Artists, like Gladys Guevarra, also put her skills in making Filipino delicacies to good use. A decent income from selling food will go a long way. Another artist who also turned to online selling is Gloc-9.
