We are heading to Manila to visit my siblings while the entire nation is having the national and local election.
I only pray that the election will be free from any form of fraud and violence. There are indeed hot spots where election – related violence is gravely imminent.
My family in other areas are even witness of politicians giving out money to ensure that they shall be voted. But I only hope that voters will really be wisest this time otherwise we endure another six long years of economic and political turmoil.
This nation is quite far from full development because we keep on voting the wrong people. The Filipinos are known for persistence and intelligence, I hope that this time, all the right values fall into place, so, the right leaders are chosen.
We can only hope for a change and each vote indeed counts.
