Now is the time

THOUGHTS TO GUIDE US BY - Elvie Punzalan-Estavillo - The Philippine Star

Myriad, gigantic challenges await our elected and appointed officials... as the Filipinos pin their hopes for a better life, brighter future. For if not now, then when? They’ve waited too long to be emancipated.

Change is inevitable. Our leaders must keep themselves abreast of new horizons, to be in-step with this fast-changing digitized world, properly armed with great purpose, firm direction to steer our beloved country to the path of peace and prosperity for all Filipinos. To lead by stern example for people to willingly follow them. To fully assure people that massive corruption and indiscriminate misuse of public funds ENDS. That judicious, wise spending of taxes becomes the norm in our government.

Pray our government officials, elected and appointed, will wholeheartedly, most honestly and efficiently serve our beloved Motherland ... to uplift the lives of our long-suffering kababayans. Now is the best and right time for them to demonstrate their courage by turning their passion for service into reality during this turbulent time in our global history.

Fulfill their commitment to our people … to leave a great, lasting legacy to remember them by.

Peace, good health, safety, abundance to us all!
