The story by default
Some climbers enjoyed the view of Mt Apo from Lake Venado. They camped in the evening, partied all night and felt lazy to carry their trash back down the following day!
And then the image was posted on Facebook and there was a feast of opinions and criticism taken part in by everyone who knew everything!
The other version
The photo was taken during the yearly rehabilitation period of Mt Apo. Tourism office personnel gathered garbage and put them on the dry area of Lake Venado and carried all the collected garbage down the mountain after two days.
Every image makes you a witness of just a millisecond of a long event. Don’t be too quick to tell the story. Let the real witness do that.
The heads up
Every story is just as good as how much the real witness wants you to know.
The untold story
The guy who took this photo was a climber who was not really part of the rehabilitation activity. During rehabilitation, NO CLIMBER IS ALLOWED ENTRY into the natural park!
The lessonThings do happen. The question is Can you make things happen?...You’ll get the relevance of the lesson if you’re among of the few who get my drift!
