PHILIPPINE ELECTION 2010: Mar Roxas' ultimate sacrifice



“There are plenty of teams in every sport that have great players and
never win titles. Most of the time, those players aren't willing to
sacrifice for the greater good of the team. The funny thing is, in
the end, their unwillingness to sacrifice only makes individual
goals more difficult to achieve. One thing I believe to the fullest
is that if you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades
will take care of themselves. Talent wins games, but teamwork and
intelligence win championships.”

--- Michael Jordan


I was shocked yesterday night watching the news on TV patrol showing Senator Mar Roxas' announcement of withdrawal from his bid for the 2010 Presidential race. He surrendered
his biggest dream and sacrificed his ambition to give way for Senator Noynoy Aquino to be Liberal Party's Standard Bearer.

Mar Roxas said the following:

“Ito na ang pinakamabigat na desisyon sa buhay ko. Maniwala man kayo o hindi, ginawa ko ito para sa bayan, para sa inyo (This is the toughest decision of my life. Believe it or not, I did this for the nation, for all of you). I do this for unity in support of change. And if that means somebody must make the sacrifice, it must be me. Ako na (It’s me),”

“We agreed, let us forget about ourselves,” he said of his conversations with Noynoy. “This is not about us. This is about our people and our country.”

“I began the campaign to sow the seeds of reform. You must now be the one to grow them in the arena of leadership.”

"Today, I am announcing my support for the candidacy of Noynoy as the candidate for 2010."


Senator Roxas showed a true and classic example of leadership. A selfless leader who knows what's the best for the unification of his party and his country. What Sen. Roxas did will be put into memoriam of the Filipino people today. He had already spent millions for his political ambition and yet, he succumbed his biggest dream for the sake of the nation. He is like John the Baptist who prepared the way for Jesus Christ. He displayed the difference of a Statesman from a politician. MABUHAY KA!

SENATOR NOYNOY AQUINO, IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO ANSWER THE CALL OF THE PEOPLE, ITS TIME FOR YOU TO ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE, ITS TIME FOR YOU TO ACT, NOW!

There's still HOPE for the PHILIPPINES! BAYAN MUNA BAGO ANG SARILI.

I am calling other opposition leaders to join Senator Roxas' vision for our country. If you do really care for our nation, stop creating a division among the Filipino people. You can serve and lead the people without taking the highest seat in the country.
