Proclamation of President Noynoy Aquino
I watched the proclamation of the 15th President of the Philippines, Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. It gave me goose bumps! Especially when people started chanting “Noynoy” when he entered the hall and when he was asked to go up the rostrum. It was history unveiling before my very eyes.
Admittedly, I didn’t vote for Noynoy. I voted for Gibo Teodoro. I voted for Jojo Binay for vice president and I am glad he won (and was proclaimed alongside Noynoy today). But as I have said to everyone who would listen to me during the canvassing of votes, now that Noynoy has won, it is time for us to set aside our differences and rally behind the man. I wish the losing politicians will put a stop to their cheating allegations and just help the new president and vice president with the job of cleaning all the mess left behind by GMA.
I really wish the new President-elect Noynoy Aquino the best in his 6-year term. I wish he won’t pull a GMA on us. I pray that his presidency will bring about the change Filipinos around the world need.
My suggestion: please do something about the sad state of the country’s education. Poverty will be minimized if the citizens of the country are given the right education they need.
