Good job guys! You’ve won the hearts of most Filipinos; now it’s time for you to win every Filipino’s heart by being a good president and vice president. We believe, well at least I believe, that you can do better than the previous ones who were in your positions. Lead us to a becoming a better nation in the 6 years that you will be seated. Please, I beg you, do not abuse your power and do what’s right for everyone, not just for yourself.
I know you know what this country needs. And you know everybody’s waiting for you to do something about it.
Take the challenge and make a change.
We’ll all be proud, and you’d go down in history as a great leader.
