The script above was mentioned by Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer) in the TV Series "Desperate Housewives." And here goes my viewpoint about her script.
I am a proud nursing student of Our Lady Of Fatima University (Valenzuela City). And for years that I am fully engaged in medical duties, I truly believe that Filipino doctors are one of the best health care providers in the world. In fact, many of them are excellent in Medical Bar Exams. And together with their commitment, sincerity, and passion in their crucial tasks, they make the lives of many people as healthy as it can be. Not mentioning the fact that Filipinos are caring and hospitable, they are admired by many people from different countries about their integrity and efficiency in rendering health services to their patient.
As what Teri Hatcher had mentioned, I guess, she did not mean to say such offensive phrases as was mentioned above. But not to mention, she was not aware of what would be the effect of her dialogue to the Filipinos, especially to doctors and all who are in medical field. And prior to that, many Filipinos were offended, including myself. Therefore, the program, Desperate Housewives, itself should make a public apology with the essence of sincerity and empathy.
As for me, such things like that should be ignored. After all, truth will always triumph and prevail. Henceforth, the dialogue shall serve as challenge to all medical doctors and health care providers from the Philippines to strive more in making themselves excellent and humble. That is, to show to the whole world what Filipinos have to be.
