Eveready Moments Rewind

| 08 December 2010
I'm fond of watching action films, especially those that has been patterned on real life stories and historical events. My favorite action films include Band of Brothers, Pearl Harbor, Platoon and The Pacific. I know, you noticed that all these films include US Rangers stories and their line of duty. There's a feeling of happiness and contentment that I was able to watch these movies thrice.

So, what's the connection with this introduction on Eveready Moments Rewind? Once upon a time, I had two Uncles who were serving the country as members of the Army. We had nice memories with these two amazing individuals because they've been close to our family. The other one (named as Mr. M) is not married, so it's not surprising that he spent a lot of time with his nephews and nieces, including me. It's still fresh in my mind when we cheer out loud every time he visits our humble dwelling. In most cases, our treats include nice meals, candies, bread and school supplies. He's the happiest when all of us gladly accepted his presents. For so many years, he'd been with us sharing positive thoughts and strength every time we need it.

The last time I saw him was when he's trying to hop in a bus but unexpectedly fell down. Thankfully, the driver waited for him to finally join the ride to work. Two days later, we had a gathering in the nearby village. This time, I'm with childhood friends and cousins. Since we used to listen to the radio, we brought with us a portable radio set and Eveready batteries. We don't want to miss listening to our favorite music and drama programs. As children, we usually prefer radio broadcasts than television because of the interesting drama programs. Also, we had tons of Eveready batteries prepared at home in case we need it. In between nice radio programs; local, national and international news are usually aired. That fateful Friday afternoon, we heard over the radio a sad news that our beloved uncle, Mr. M was killed.

The things I remember about another Uncle, Uncle P, include beach parties, farming and his way of carrying his son (my cousin) over his shoulders. Like Mr. M, he's also part of the Army. We're aware that his last assignment was in Basilan. Yes, he got killed there while participating in a very dangerous operation. How we heard the news? Of course, we're always using our portable radio and sets of Eveready batteries. Before their station commander sent a message to my Grandma, we already knew the bad news. And his last words for me before he went to war? "Study well. Prepare for your future."

See? We had good and bad Eveready Moments. For so many years, I've learned a lot because of our radio. Also, I got hints of how to create literary pieces because of my habit in listening to drama programs. On the day Princess Diana died, I heard the sad news over the radio. Until this day, we still have our radio and sets of Eveready batteries in my huge treasure box in the province. Although it's been so long that I got the chance to have it checked, I still remember those memorable things.


So every time I watch action films, you'll expect me think about my colorful childhood days, our radio plus Eveready batteries, brave Uncles and their Army adventures and opportunity to learn many things.

Finally, we can always prepare during typhoons and earthquakes because of timely news given by radio announcers. It's easy for us to get news about loved ones, good or bad too. I've got to prepare school examinations during brownouts because of our radio and its dependable batteries. Preparing for my future isn't easy but the task became lighter because of using a family companion (radio) and dependable batteries called Eveready.
