As Duterte being the 16th President of the Philippines, though many people don’t like him, but the rest supports him.
Rodrigo “Rody or Digong” Duterte is a former City Mayor of Davao City — one of the safest cities in the whole world. It ranked 4th as of month of June. Davao City is one of the places that has 911 rescues. USA, Canada, and Davao are the only places to have 911. Duterte is also the first local government to give goods to the Yolanda victims (internationally called “Haiyan”).
Duterte is one of the toughest politician in the world of politics. He bacame a lawyer, congressman, vice mayor, and a city mayor for decades. Though, being tough didn’t stop him to rule the city — and the country. He also said that at first, being a mayor is not his thing. But for me, I think he loved it. And it is also an honor to Davao to be ranked 4th as one of the safest cities in the world.
But my question is, how can he rule the country because for me.. Davao is just a small city comparing to a country (of course). And some mayors don’t do their job well. Comparing to Duterte, he’s hella one of the greatest mayors — or should I say, the greatest and the wisest mayor in the Philippines. It’s kinda hard to rule a third world country. I’m not degrading my own country but I must say that Philippines can’t rise without the help of Filipinos. One must contribute and change their own and obey the rules.
Pagbabago – change. We must change ourselves in a good way. We can’t have a great president if we don’t have our great personality. Just like in school, in class.. Groupings. Each group has a leader. I experienced being a leader many times and I have observed, that one must coordinate and help the leader, because if we are helping and doing the project together, we’ll create something different (in a good way).
He told the media that he will start the change on him. He’ll wake up early instead of waking up at noon. I think it’s because he rounds at the city during midnight that’s why his body clock wakes up at noon.
I just want to say that we must start change in ourselves if we want to change the country so bad. We must obey the rules and we must possess self respect and to overcome temptation. If we live in a world full of temptation, we can’t have the good and beautiful life that we pursue.
We must not rely only in Duterte. We, too, have to coordinate and help each other to grow. That’s how the country grows. With the help of everybody. And if we achieved that kind of growth, we must be consistent until the very end.
