To all,

I am a member of a forum for Ateneo graduates and I was asked by a friend C.B. on why I was supporting this movement for the Noynoy – Mar candidacy.   Previous to this, there was an article written by Emil Jurado questioning the legislative record of Noynoy.

Following is my reply:

Subject: Love of country versus love of self Index

Glimmers of Hope and Change

by Louie Lapat,
Davao del Norte

Wherever I go and when perfect strangers talk to me about politics, the topic would always fall on truth, transparency in government, corruption and their excitement to vote and aspirations of a clean and credible election this coming May 2010.

Again, this is triggered by that piece of yellow ribbon which I wear everyday when I go out along with that Lipad Pinoy pin on the strap of my backpack. As what I had shared in my previous post, this yellow ribbon is indeed a silent campaign material that ignites excitement among the people who will see it and reminds them of the noble task that lies ahead of us: to elect leaders who will take this country forward, unite and inspire us and clean the system of governance that has long been tainted with corruption and immorality in the past years. That’s what we are fighting for and we must win this together. Read the rest of this entry »

Kay Noy ipagkakatiwala ang kinabukasan

In keeping with the conviction that the Internet is a forum for the voice of the people to be heard, we asked Noy’s Facebook fans, “Bakit nais ninyong kay Noy ipagkatiwala ang kinabukasan ng ating bayan?” In two days, we got 200 responses. Here’s some of the responses, unscripted, unedited, undirected. Take a look at what YOU got to say. Read the rest of this entry »

The true meaning of People Power

by Mark Anthony D. Malcampo,
Paranaque City

Thanks to the democracy that Ninoy died for and Cory nurtured, we have a chance in 2010 to elect a leader to clean up the mess that our current administration brought us into. Nobody except Noy represents a legacy and platform of hope, optimism and change. I am for Noy because he embodies our nation’s collective aspirations for a clean and honest government.

I was born in 1985, a year before EDSA I. I have only read, watched, or listened to stories of those who faced the tanks with flowers and sandwiches – ordinary people who bravely defied a tyrannical regime. All I knew was that we owe the democracy we were enjoying to those people. I took it for granted and I never knew what the Spirit of EDSA was.

We now have more than 100k supporters on Facebook. Dahil sa inyo, mas marami na akong fans kay Kris 😀 Salamat,” tweeted presidential candidate Senator Benigno “Noynoy” S. Aquino III today on his Twitter Account.

This outpouring of online support reflects the substantial role the Internet will play in the 2010 presidential elections. Presidential aspirants have been using social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to gather and rally supporters.

Noynoy’s Facebook Fanpage, which was started last September, had garnered around 30,000 fans in just two weeks. A month after it was made an official Facebook fanpage, 60,000 more people had joined the account.

The 100,000th member joined on Thursday 5 November, at 8:05 AM Manila time.

Wearing Yellow

by Jeanne Carmel Puertollano,
Quezon City

The fifth of August 2009 will forever be etched in my mind. From La Salle, I marched with several other members of the community to pay our final respects to the woman to whom I am greatly indebted to for the freedom I enjoy.

As the flag-draped coffin on top of the truck guarded by four honorable men from the Armed Forces passed by me along Roxas Boulevard and “laban” signs were flashing right before my very eyes, I knew that Filipinos will never be the same after the heroine of democracy has been laid to rest. I knew that the dormant activists will be awakened:  like the heat of the lava that comes out of a volcano after it has erupted, citizens of this country knew that the country needs a revolution. Somehow, hours spent being drenched in the rain, weeping for the loss of the country’s former leader, the fire inside each mourner’s heart started burning.
