In earlier days, the L-sign was for "Laban!" (Fight) and signified the Yellow Movement of the political opposition to the Marcoses. Of recent vintage to Filipinos is the L-sign as used by Americans, which meant LOSERS. Or, as Jim Carrey puts it . . . LA-HOOOOO-ZERS!
Just for these times, let's think of being winners for our own sake, not because of any political agenda or ideology to prove. Winning for the sake of excellence is the best card Filipinos can lay on the table, be it abroad or back home.
There are just too many mental L-signs still hung over people's heads.
