A Filipina of unparalleled character comes home. Pinay heroine Mildred Perez, the honest OFW who returned to its owner a considerable sum of money while scrounging for trash in Hongkong, is now back in the Philippines.
This is the post I made about Mildred Perez a month ago, Celebrating Pinay Heroine Mildred Perez — Who Among Our 2010 Presidentiables Measures Up to the Decency of This Honest Pinay OFW?
In returning the money, this is what Mildred has to say, "The choice is God or the money, but I chose God ..."

This is how I ended my last post on Mildred Perez and I just want to say it again:
I know that Mildred Perez will become an iconic figure of our time, a woman who typifies the best in every Filipina, who continues to battle the odds and comes out on top not in terms of earthly riches or worldly power but in the infinitely greater measure of basic decency, human dignity and unequaled respect in the eyes of her fellow Filipinos.We can teach our children to aspire for high things such as becoming President of the Philippines, or Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, or a Senator of the Republic or we can teach them to aspire for something much better, something that will make them truly blessed — to have character, decency, faith and courage like that of a Filipina named Mildred Perez.
Mildred Perez's life and shining example is one unending praise to God.
