The Philippines under the New Administration

I could hear fireworks. I guess it is coming from the Street Party at the Quezon Memorial Circle after the inauguration of our new President Noynoy Aquino this morning.

It has been raining in Manila for the past days but today the weather cooperated. Hoping that it is a sign for good things to come for the Philippines not just for the 6 years that he will be holding office but as start of something new and better for the whole country. And what better way to start than NOT just having the new president take an oath but the Filipinos as well as represented by the different sectors in the event.

Here is just a part of the inaugural speech of the new president, the translated text in English can be found here, however, I'd like to focus on the oath of the Filipinos as a response to the president's oath as shown starting at 7:17 of the video:

It is so very appropriate since the direction of our country doesn't just fall in one man's hands. It is the collective effort of all Filipinos. We really have to do our share. I know that I have to do my share!
