Breaking Barriers Philippine Blog Tour Featured Chapter: Round 5 Story: Love is Stronger than Hate

MJ Tumamac, teacher and award winning writer writes a chapter review for the Breaking Barriers Philippine Blog Tour. He chose Round 5 Story: Love is Stronger than Hate and relates this to a Filipino Young Adult novel, I Hate My Mother by Perpi Tionsgon (Cacho Publishing, 2009). He further connects this with  his own experiences growing up, and now, as a writer of middle grades and young adult stories he can use such insights for his writing and teaching craft.

Indeed, reading Breaking Barriers: How to Knock Out Adversity and Live Life as a Champion by John Couret serves many purposes and lends valuable insights in more ways than one!

MJ is touched by John Couret's story as a parent to Victoria, his daughter. Their relationship was tested through a pregnancy at a time when Victoria is still learning to be. Any parent would spiral towards anger, but John Couret, the champion that he is, showed love. He is now a happy grandfather to Macci.

Sometimes, we see letting go and surrendering as acts of weakness. When done with love, it heals all wounds and cures all ills. In the end, all we need is love and love is all we need!
