2009 CNN Hero the Year: Efren Penaflorida, Jr.,

Congratulations to Efren Penaflorida, Jr. for winning the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year! You made us truly proud. You are an inspiration to our country and people. I pray that your kind will grow in numbers. You reminded us all that we don't need to wait for Superman to make a difference to the world and to help others live better lives. You also reminded us that we don't need to be in politics to actually start something to help improve the lives of others; that change do not start from others but from our own selves.
