Four years have passed since I took my first oath of office as President of the Republic of the Philippines. We have travelled far since then. But panic, we did not. Rather against the usual raucous cries of the cynics we kept faith, and in that faith persevered, until the passing of that terrible cloud.
There are too many of us who see things as they are and complain. Let us rather see things as they should be and aspire. Let us dream the vision of what could be and not of what might have been.
