The Day We Met Our President.
It was that fateful day of February 3 when we were invited to attend the blessing of his campaign headquarters at V.V Soliven bldg in Edsa. That same day too, his disqualification cases were dismissed. What a good sign.
Ang daming tao mula sa iba’t ibang sektor. From muslim groups, to NGOs, representatives ng iba’t ibang probinsya, mga former military personnel, some members of the press, nandun lahat para magbigay ng suporta sa kanya.
Ngayon lang ako nakakita na mismong mga citizens ang nagvovolunteer para gumawa ng campaign materials para sa kanya. This production company CinEmotion Digital Films, has been rendering their services to capture Mayor Duterte during his campaign rallies and share it in social media. Wala kasing malaking pondo and kampanya. Pero lahat nagkakapit bisig para magbigay ng suporta. Nakakatouch.
Kami on our end, we will be joining his rallies para magpakita ng suporta. Nagpapagawa rin kami ng baller bands para makatulong. Hehe. Maliit na paraan pero kahit papano ay ambag para sa nakaantabay ng pagbabago kung sya ang magiging pangulo.
We met him—Was given the opportunity to listen to him at wala pang limang minuto, We were able to go beyond the not-so-good first impressions about him. He surely is not your typical presidentiable. He is honest and to the point but his fervor and patriotism is truly admirable. Feeling ko aatakahin sya sa puso whenever he talks about going after criminals and corrupt government officials dahil ramdam mo ang gigil nya. His frustrations lead him to curse yeah, although parang halata mo pinipigilan na nya magmura dahil siguro napagsasabihan sya. Mas endearing tuloy ngayon sya pakinggan dahil umeeffort talaga. Ibig sabihin pinapahalagahan nya ang opinyon ng mga taong sumusuporta sa kanya. He is very spontaneous—Walang script. He speaks his mind pero may sense lahat and it echoes the sentiments at mga hinaing nating mga mamamayan. He addresses issues with so much practicality and offers realistic solutions without the flowery words.
But most of all, ang meron sya na wala sa iba na talaga namang hinangaan ko ay kanyang SINSERIDAD. He may appear tough and filled with machismo, but his heart and mind are in the right place—-his love for country and fellow men, the intention to protect, uphold and move towards progress is so much alive in him. Grabe, naiiyak ako dahil totoo sya. Nabubuhayan ang loob namin dahil may dala syang tunay na pag-asa. Mahal ko ang bansa ko pero minsan gusto ko na sumuko. Ngayon dahil sa kanya nabubuhayan kami ng loob. First time ko naexperience na pag-usapan ang problema ng bansa and end it with, “di bale, konting tiis na lang, pag si Duterte na ang presidente, lahat ng korupsyon unti-unting maaayos.”
Kaya Digong, nasa tabi nyo kami. We will speak for you because we believe in you.
For those who have their own opinions about him and are not convinced, take the time to REALLY listen. Behind his hirits and his sarcasm, na if you take literally eh talagang matatakot ka…there is a great leader who’s political will is so strong it can change a nation. Thats what we need. Aminin na natin, pasaway tayong mga Pilipino—kung lulusot lulusot. Kailangan natin ng disiplina.
Pero kung ayaw nyo pa rin sa kanya, ok lang. Huwag lang nating husgahan ang isa’t isa just because magkakaiba tayo ng paniniwala.
Sa mga taong nagsasabing blinded ang mga followers ni Duterte…shame on you! Respeto lang. Wag ninyo kami pagmukhaing tanga at bobo just because we don’t share the same opinion. Kanya-kanyang manok lang yan.
