“Ang proyekto ng Pilipinas, hindi nagtatapos sa eleksiyon. Kasama pa rin tayo sa proyekto ng demokrasya, manalo o matalo man ang ating mga binoto.”
Not everyone comes out of the election a winner. And with the results out, the country is split yet again: some are victorious, some are grieving. But no matter the results, Fr. Tito Caluag and his trio of distinguished thinkers—Manolo Quezon, Leloy Claudio, and Carlo Santiago—remind us that the project of our country is still young. All nationhood goes through triumphs and tribulations—and the result may not always to be our liking. What shouldn’t change is our active involvement in the continuous journey and evolution of our democracy so that when we leave it to the next generation, we can say that we did our best. We left our legacy.
“Kailangan nating pakinggan ang boses ng sambayanan dahil iisa lamang tayong bansa.”
