This year’s month of May plays a significant event of our country that would change our future. A day for election, A time to make a wise decision, a time for deliberation and a moment for unity. All what it takes is a vote that would make us one, a hand that would define our goal and a goal that would dignify our country. The question is, to whom the people will entrust the responsibility to be the Philippine’s shepherd.
The country needs a president with self-dignity and has a strong personal foundation, a leader with full of philosophy, a leader that will stand forth to what is right and has a courage to decide basing from the welfare of the citizens. A leader who has the will to uncover the Philippines from the bandage of slavery from the neighboring countries, a president that would define the country by its prosperity, a leader with sense of responsibility and would make the country experience and feel what solidarity and peace is all about. Indeed, a lot of obstacles may hinder the president to fulfil all his or her endeavor; however, he or she can surely overcome any trials that will arise. We need a leader who would let the voices of people be heard.
The progress of the country doesn’t only depend on the president but with the collaboration and cooperation of people. The bottom line is, our future doesn’t only lies to a single person but also to every Filipino who are fate depends on our actions. We can be leaders in our own little ways; we do not need a position to make a change because we live to make difference in ourselves, for our love ones, neither for the community nor for the whole country.
All we need is a hand in hand labor, working as one in fulfilling our country’s goal. The vision makes us go and inspire through life involvement. The goal deliberates a continuous demand for the progress of specific identity and it’s not just for one self but to the whole personality the needs a way in pursuing objectives. With one vote, it triggers to demand what is right for us. With one hand, it foresees the integral unity that develops the whole perception of everyone. With one goal, it indicates a better innovation that enhances everyone satisfaction in life.
