The two-day orientation of the volunteers for the upcoming campaign of President of the Philippines Nicanor “Nick” Perlas inspires the more than 50 volunteers of various ages present.
July 4-5 marks the start of paving the way for a candidate which raises the eyebrows of many. The orientation put people in which most of them had actually met for the first time. There were artists, environmentalists, students, drivers, I.T. person, lawyers and more. It was a dynamism of thinking and principles that would consist the first batch of volunteers. Nick Perlas personally facilitated the orientation.
It could be sensed from the moment one enters the venue what was going to happen that this one was going to be quite intriguing and unfamiliar. First, it was nothing like a comfortable function room with the views of trees outside, usual of other orientations. Instead, participants was greeted by a door with red lacy curtains, peeling paint, and not even air-conditioning. There was even a hanging ornament of red Christmas balls and mistletoe. So imagine the 50 or so people, coming to see if this was the Man, the Vision, the Message, and the Work for them. Will they even cross the threshold?
Despite the red trimmings with a promise of two days pungent sweat, they stepped into the unknown. And they stayed. Grappling sweat and hunger (oh, there was food, but people would rather engage in animated conversations) with high-spirited, exuberant, almost fervid dialogues.
These were people from diverse backgrounds: the serene spirituals; fiery blogsters; apathetic guests that tagged along, dragged by friends to attend, or worse instructed by family or bosses; zealous writers and activists; creative artists and a fashion designer; curious students and astute educators; low key techies and intellectuals; dignified royalty; flamboyant masters of motivation; and me. People so diverse you would have thought the booming and high-pitched voices were about discordant issues, disputes and dissents. And yet, I have never seen a more convergent group, speaking the same language in different voices, and holding the same faith, the faith that this country will be reborn and that we finally held the key.

filipinos as a whole are law-abiding and desire for a country much better than what we have now. more importantly as a whole, it is a country displeased with the moral bankruptcy that we are in now and we agree with chief justice puno for his call to form a visible moral force.
it’s a good idea. but there is a problem – it is a force in need of a leader.
leadership problems, its lack and poor quality, has been a perennial problem in the country. the leaders we find seem to always be fleeting, where we learn to love them, elect them into office only to be disappointed on that leader’s performance in office. this has happened so often that it is possible the country’s collective psyche has given up in finding the true leader for the country.
apathy has set in. that’s what happen to people who gets disappointed time and again over a period of time. the people in many ways have simply given up trying to find a leader.
calls of the kind that chief justice puno made and what needs to be solved as the philippine daily inquirer editorial has said are usually taken up by cory aquino.
cory aquino has the credentials and the right to be the country’s leader when it comes to morals.
she was a devoted wife to a husband admired by many in the country. she comes home with her husband from exile abroad and her husband is martyred at the tarmac of the manila international airport by the regime he fought. she is thrust into the national brain and heart and becomes the leader of the country’s moral force, then called EDSA revolution. she became president to effectively change the country’s history into a new chapter. not only did she do it once, she did it twice in EDSA Dos where she for the second time became one of the moral force leadership.
but with cory’s recent mea culpa to erap estrada for EDSA Dos, we think in a snap cory lost the stature of being the leader of the country’s moral force.
until now, we could not yet fully understand why cory apologized to erap. it is mind boggling considering that though the confirmation came years after EDSA Dos, erap estrada was in fact found guilty of economic plunder. in other words, the reasons EDSA Dos was launched to which cory was one of the leaders, was fully justified.
cj puno’s Moral Force could have been led by cardinal jaime sin but he has passed away. we can only imagine that a call like what puno made would have been immediately taken up by cardinal sin.
a force, specially a moral force, to be effective need a leader. the leader provides the soul, energy and momentum. without one, it is not truly a force but just a dream.
“It is very obvious that the main problem of the country is moral decadence. This is the root cause of the density of power, corruption problem,” Puno told reporters before talking to the Anvil business group at the Ortigas Center in Pasig City.
“You look at it more deeply. You look at it from its various dimensions. That’s why … it’s time for the moral forces of the country to manifest themselves. They should cease to be an invisible force. They should play a dominant role in redirecting the destiny of our people,” he added.
