Let's All Be Heroes

In the Philippines, August is the month where we commemorate those exceptional individuals who have used their talents and resources to rise above what has been expected of them out of their passion to serve, their love for their nation, and their conviction for their principles. These are people who made the difficult decisions that so many others couldn’t, or even refused to make.

These are the country’s heroes, decreed by history and by the people.

And as government agencies across the country put their flags at half-mast to mourn for the passing of one of those officials who have chosen to make the difficult choices for the greater good, I continue to strive to emulate their ideals for a better Philippines.

Let’s all be heroes!
