senator benigno “noynoy” aquino III has been proclaimed the country’s 15th president. he is set to start his term on june 30th, succeeding former president gloria macapagal-arroyo,whose nine year term has been wracked by several scandals–coup attempts, impeachment cases, corruption and human rights violations.
the philippines, once again will be hailed as another first in history. media all over the world will be very curious about this man and what he has to offer. this, will not be a very easy feat. life in the palace is never a bed of roses. In fact, its like a cruxifiction of some sort. with all the problems, issues and scandals he stands to inherit, an arm and a limb is not enough.
a choice has been made. the people are victorious. change reaches a new height. let’s all hope for the best.
god bless the philippines.
