The intense morning heat failed to discourage hundreds of Filipinos from different walks of life from committing to make a better Philippines at the Manila Bulletin Pledge of Change at the Agrafina Circle in Rizal Park, Manila yesterday.
Students, senior citizens, friends, parkgoers, and notable personalities from the government yesterday shared their personal commitment to help improve the Philippines by writing their pledges on acetate and placing them on a 6×24 waterproof installation.
The Manila Bulletin placed the installation which resembles the Philippine flag in front of the Lapu-Lapu Shrine to celebrate the recent elections and Independence Day.
Dr. Cris Icban, Editor-in-Chief of the Manila Bulletin, in his opening remarks encouraged every Filipino to be part of the change they want to see instead of just watching someone lead them to it.
Dr. Emilio C. Yap III, Vice Chairman of the Board and Executive Vice President of the Manila Bulletin, said he is very elated that Filipinos are taking the Pledge of Change campaign seriously. (Argyll Cyrus B. Geducos)
