Graduation 2014 Message: Hindi Natitinag ang Pusong Pilipino

          ‘To he who knocks, the door will open.’
           Warmest congratulations to all the graduates of 2014 who have entered the first door of great possibilities and more opportunities. Let me welcome you now with corsage and accolade of happiness and hope.
Roeniel Manzanilla is the class valedictorian of Maduya Elementary School
 in Carmona, Cavite during the school year 2012-2013.
           Filipino people has etched a new record this previous year especially during the events such as record breaking typhoons, unwanted earthquakes and other calamities. CNN ‘unofficially’ called us as ‘unbelievably resilient, long suffering, good natured, uber friendly, loyal, ingenius and a bunch of survivors’.
           My dear graduates, be a real Filipino in heart and in deeds. Filipino people have indomitable fighting spirit at its finest. Let us conquer our ultimate enemy which is poverty. In doing this, you have to manage to finish what you have started even though you do not know all the traps and hardships along the way. And at a time when your passion waned because of the difficulties you encountered, you have to reach for discipline. And when discipline seemed about to disappear because you were tired, you use you moment of repose to think about what steps you needed to take in the future.
MADES Kindergarten Graduation 2013
            Like the earthquake and typhoon survivors, don’t be paralyzed by the defeats and misfortunes along the way that are inevitable in our lives. Don’t sit agonizing over what you lost when you had an idea that did not work or when you failed.
            In the other hand, do not stop also when you experienced moments of triumphs and victories, because you had not reached yet your goal. These are but sugar to your path to your real dream.
A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that "individuality" is the key to success.  ~Robert Orben
            Don’t just dream of success. Success comes to those who do not waste time comparing what they are doing with what others are doing. People who seek only success rarely find it, because success is not an end, but a consequence.
            You must always have a goal in mind.
            “Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass - to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” ― Anthon St. Maarten

             More luck and greater power to all of you Graduates of 2014!
