Yes, there is a God!
And He works in mysterious ways. He is a just God and I just feel it and know that something good will come out of this Napoles affair.
It cannot and will not be business as usual. COA’s reports on the (mis)use of the PDAF has opened a Pandora’s box and who knows what else is in it. If there’s one thing for sure, people are angry for being robbed of their taxpayers money which otherwise should have gone to basic services. Who will get his comeuppance in the end? I don’t know who exactly but definitely, someone will have to answer for it in the end. On September 11, another march is being planned. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball! Don’t get distracted by side issues.
From ripples to waves
The country’s premier organization for public relations professionals PRSP is once again organizing the 20th National PR Congress as it takes an inspiring new turn at Paradise Garden Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Boracay Island.
