Are we Filipinos really in a historical moment that, finally, we can now collectively uplift ourselves as a nation? If we boast of being "streetwise" and therefore cynical, we won't believe the opportunies to be real, we'll refuse to do anything, remain passive, and prepare to choose who to blame for opportunities wasted. Let's ponder the little 'poem' below, and remember the nation of heroism that we once were, before we learned to be so "wa-es."
Ang lilikha'y tayo!
Sa direksyon at halimbawa
Ng mga mamumuno,
Magbalik-bayanihan na sana,
Daang milyong Pilipino!
Sa pagkakataong makabangon
Na ngayon sa pagbabago,
Huwag tayong kaagad na sumuko,
Sa takot na baka muling mabigo...
Sa lahat ng mabuting magagawa mo,
Halina, sumulong na tayo, Pilipino!!!
