Do you believe that change is coming under a Duterte presidency? Well, this netizen thinks so.
A viral post recalling an inspiring encounter with an FX driver who teaches his passengers a thing or two about road discipline has been doing the rounds online.
In a Facebook post shared more than 21,800 times as of Wednesday morning, netizen Macky Valmonte published his story on May 11, 2016, two days after the election when Mayor Duterte has clearly come out as the winner in the presidential race.
In the post, the netizen recalled how the FX driver told his passengers when and where to alight properly from the FX taxi according to the traffic rules.
Mr. Valmonte wrote that he is happy knowing that the Filipinos who wants to see changes (discipline) in the country are the ones teaching their countrymen how to change themselves.
His point being is that change should start from within, not from an external influence or because of the new President.

Nakakatuwa na may mga pilipino na gusto talagang magbago ang pilipinas na sila mismo ang nagtuturo sa kapwa nila pilipino kung paano magbago. Wag isalalay at iasa lahat sa presidente. Dapat ikaw din mismo.
