    We should thank God for this chance to hope again. This opportunity to dream again. This challenge to fight again. This clamor to change for the best. This duty to do what is right. Righteousness which should lead our life. This life for sacrifices, heroism and even martyrdom. This heart we can give wholly to our country. This country the home of our idealism and aspiration. This aspiration which sprung from decades of national longing and struggle. This struggle we can see victory coming in few months.

    We should thank God for Noynoy and Mar. They are the answer to our prayers. They are Cory’s gift to us given upon her death. They are the culmination of what Ninoy fought for, the fruits of life he gave up for us. Let us all thank God for at last, yes at last….we now have a chance for good governance, for a radical change, for national pride and for a new prosperous life for all of us.

    I can see hope in the distance.
    Its a bright shining light that will fight the darkness at bay
    Will blow a gentle breeze after the hot violent day
    It resolve me to remain positive in the tough days ahead
    Hope my friend for beautiful things never dies
    Our life, our nation, our future
    Hail great heroes of today
