We officially have a new administration upon us as President Rodrigo Duterte and Vice-President Leni Robredo stepped into office yesterday. But the question is, can we move on from the pettiness of the elections and work to a better Philippines? Kris Aquino has started, why not follow suit?
Our President is known for giving the cold shoulder to Leni—from not sitting down for a formal meeting to not giving her a cabinet position all because she was part of a different party and might hurt Bongbong Marcos’ feelings.
But amid all the drama, the ex-presidential sister Kris made it simple (a first) by saying a prayer for the new administration and the new leaders of our country—and of course, she posted this on Instagram.
When I was praying last night, I thanked God for the memories we will treasure. What stood out in my heart was the opportunity to have been in the presence of @franciscus, attending His Mass w/ all other Filipinos who share our faith, and all the times Tito Noy made an extra effort to include Kuya Josh & Bimb… May God continue to bless President Duterte & Vice President Robredo, the success of our leaders is also the success of our country. MABUHAY ANG DEMOKRASYA! 🇵🇭
Here’s to hoping that President Rodrigo Duterte moves past all that and work hand-in-hand with our VP Leni Robredo. Well, not literally hand-in-hand.[Bandera]
