Wanted: A leader for Filipinos
It is heartbreaking and disappointing to see people still supporting the Marcoses at this point, knowing the crimes their family did to this country and to our countrymen.
But our approach should always root from “understanding.” Why do they still support them? Is it out of necessity? On the other hand, I still have high hopes that Filipinos will keep their dignity and choose a leader who has a clean and pure intention to serve the country, most especially the marginalized ones.
Let us not sacrifice our future and our country from having a good, clean, and honest government by voting for robbers instead of a leader who has served the marginalized, and genuinely and passionately works for the country. Doon tayo sa ipaglalaban tayo hanggang dulo.
