  1. To Sir Mison,
    I hope your education and training will have a positive impact to the Bureau. Not only that, also that your spirit of nationalism has not changed and that you will initiate reforms in the bureau; so much so that the Philippines joins the League of well-respected Nations because of integrity, honesty, and hard work. Sir, don’t get me wrong. I heard of well-respected personnel, trained, educated and even lived for awhile abroad, who also became corrupt government officials. It seems like it is only when we are away from our native land that we exercise good citizenship and follow strictly the rules. That when we are back home the mindset is to make easy money at maging corrupt na rin or succumb to temptation offered by unscrupulous and well-entrenched bad/corrupt personnel in our system. Sir, I know you heard this “Honor, Courage and Commitment.”
    To all, Happy Holidays!
