Politics in the Philippines is so immensely frustrating and painful, but we can’t let ourselves forget that we are still a democracy of the people, by the people and for the people. We are the movers and shakers, not the politicians. Politicians are in office because we have chosen them not to have power or wealth but to serve the Filipino people. Our government exists because we see fit for it be there. A government cannot exist without a people to govern. That is why, if we stand strong and demand justice, it will not be denied us.
