What now, Filipinos?

Panata sa Pagbabago

So, the automated election fever took us by surprise!  Filipinos was in awe how fast can we determine the next leader of the country.  Of course, there were fears and premonitions of cheating--the hi-tech way and the electoral protest for the position of Vice President is still much alive.

The country has just inaugurated its Number 1 "employee" [as the President, himself, calls the Filipino people as his "boss"].

Witnessing the inaugural last June 30 was, for me, a privilege.  People across ages and class, and even different nationalities came in droves to witness this historic event.  It is important, not only because the President and the Vice President were sworn into office. Being the "boss" of President Benigno C. Aquino III, the Filipino people also took their oath as "employers".

The message was clear, and everyone needs CHANGE, and everyone needs to be PART of that CHANGE. Thus, I am sharing a photo of the copy of the "Panata sa Pagbabago" that everyone recited towards the end of the inaugural program. It is my fervent wish that this would take root in our hearts.

The Filipinos are pinning so much hope on the leadership--hoping that the President and his technocrats can solve the country's problem in 6 years. Six (6) years is but a short period.  Needless to say, we are again at the crossroads of re-building the nation.

Without moralizing, let us all join hands in making the nation great again. After all, as "employers" of the President, we have that accountability too.
