Vice President Jejomar Binay urged his supporters on Saturday to honor their mothers everyday by ensuring that their rights are respected.
“Today we celebrate the gift of motherhood and honor the women who nurtured us and gave us their unconditional love and support throughout our lives,” Binay said, referring to Mother’s Day, celebrated in the Philippines on the second Sunday of May.
“It has been said that a mother’s love is the fuel that enables us to do the impossible.
Indeed, it is the courage and strength of our mothers that inspire us to become the best version of ourselves,” he said. “But honor the mothers in your lives everyday. We must see to it that their rights are respected and upheld to make sure that the light of the “ilaw ng tahanan” (the lamp of the home, a Filipino expression describing mothers) will never be extinguished but shine even brighter.”
