Noynoy Aquino lauds CNN Hero of the Year Efren Peñaflorida

Senator Aquino lauds 2009 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida
Congratulations to Mr. Efren Penaflorida for being named the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year.

Efren has shown the world that the true essence of heroism lies in a deep and genuine desire to uplift the lives of those who are less fortunate than we are.

His triumph is felt by a nation still reeling from the devastation brought by the recent typhoons. It inspires hope not just in his countrymen but also among citizens of the world who will now look at his pushcart classroom as a practical and affordable means of making basic education more accessible for more children.

This recognition affirms that we Filipinos do have what it takes to make a difference. I hope more Filipinos will emulate Efren’s example that has given pride to the Philippines and has earned the admiration of the world.

    Much kudos to Efren Penaflorida! I did vote for him only through the Noynoy website as it was there that I found the link. In one of his interviews, Mr. Penaflorida mentioned People Power. So he must be for Noynoy! Noynoy and Efren collaborating will blow them out of the water!
