Gathering For Unity

11 May 2010

May 7, 2010 marked my year Extraordinary.
1. It was my first time to campaign for a certain candidate.
2. It was my first time to share the voice inside me, what I believe in.
3. It was my first time to experience meeting de avance.
4. It was my first time to witness and experience true camaraderie and unity from all walks of life.
It was fun. Happiness filled Rizal Stadium, night of May 7, 2010. That moment was for everybody to be thankful for each and everyone's contribution on keeping a good impression for Presidential Candidate G1BO Teodoro,  a job well done... On all honesty, I was not really for G1BO Teodoro since the start of the campaign period. Not because he is under Lakas- Kampi or under the umbrella of the Arroyo Administration. Like the rest, it's because I don't know much about him. I kept an open mind and studied each candidate. There were times when I saw the lighter side of Manny Villar, the works of Dick Gordon, I listened to Jc Delos Reyes, and Nicanor Perlas and #1 on my list at that time was Noynoy Aquino. But when I gave G1Bo the chance, all I said was: "this man is different" and like what my Mom took as basis and from  the words of my sister-in-law : G1BO Teodoro was the only candidate who has never uttered any deregatory word towards the other presidential hopefuls only to gain votes or following.

For the very first time, I  became very vocal on my concerns as a citizen, I was able to post shout outs and I didn't hesitate posting stuff online about my candidate. He taught us to be open, to listen, and to express how one should feel without stomping on anybody else.
Over-all, win or lose it is the whole journey that made  an impact in this meeting de avance. A journey that few candidates notice and appreciate.

At the  May 7, 2010 Meeting De Avance, G1BO Teodoro's speech was heart- warming. It was a speech filled with words of gratitude. The campaign is over, it was his time to thank the people who supported him and those who continue to believe in him. Nothing more. This man is full of humility.

As for my family, we did our part, we tried and we will continue to practice what we started with G1BO. The values of helping the country and the elected president. A new beginning, a new leader but life is going to be the same, it's up to us to stand and make a big difference.

A person who DOESN"T SAY ANYTHING AGAINST HIS FELLOW CANDIDATES, a person who's able to make a STAND ON HIS OWN, a person who's ABLE TO MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE, a person who PRACTICES CAMARADERIE, a person who KNOWS HOW TO LISTEN and MAKES FIRM- WISE JUDGEMENTS AND CHOICES, a person who is READY TO ACCEPT DEFEAT and WILL HELP STABILIZE OUR COUNTRY, THAN destroy the elected leader, a person WHO VALUES and LOVE HIS FAMILY, will no doubt, LOVE HIS COUNTRY AS MUCH, a GOD -FEARING, GOD-LOVING person... these are STRONG CHARACTERISTICS that makes up a good leader.

REGARDLESS OF TRACK RECORD, PARTY AND STATUS. A candidate will not qualify if he/she is not capable basing it on history of Philippine Politics (at least from the moment I was awakened) . Basically, anybody can run for Presidency as long as you're of legal age. We placed the most experienced politicians, but most of them succumbed with greed and malicious judgements and totally forgot about THEIR JOB: PUBLIC SERVICE and GOOD GOVERNANCE
Politics was made to have rules and procedures to follow. For the past years we all witnessed how people juggled around with these rules, how our country played in this game. THIS IS NOT A CONTEST. Popularity is not gauge in order to put somebody in position. 

Look for the moral aspect, listen to the words that comes out of each candidate's mouth. Consistency ON HIS GOALS with a timeline set in order to make achievements. NOT hopes and dreams that will eventually be left behind. Then decide.
