I really want to stay some more but I have so much work to do still and I don’t have the time to write my epic pieces so let me cut to the chase.
Secretary Judy Taguiwalo is one-of-a-kind. I don’t think we will ever see the likes of her –ever again–and in a very long time too.
With her, the poor are in good hands. With her, our country is in safe, trustworthy hands. Everyday she sits in office as DSWD secretary, she chips away at the fulminant rot that has held our country hostage for so many decades now.
Every single day she is DSWD Secretary, the Filipino people win.
She is priceless.
Manay Judy is the rare intersect of excellence in public service and a heart that beats ever so wildly and passionately for country. This is what her whole life has been about: LOVE FOR COUNTRY.
She once said to me, “Meron pa bang mas hihigit pa sa pagmamahal natin sa bayan?”
And I have seen her eyes mist over when we talk about all that we ache to do for our country.
She is the President’s crown jewel, yes–for all the support and laser-sharp response time she brings in implementing the DSWD’s programs so that as many are helped as possible. So much like the President she serves under.
But more than anything, she is OUR jewel. The Filipino people’s. ATIN SHA!
We are on the cusp of losing her. She’s been bypassed a 2nd time by the Committee on Appointments. And I think we must each do our part in making sure the CA hears us.
They are men and women who can be reasoned with. I deeply believe this. And I hope the common ground of ‘what’s best for country and future generations of Filipinos’ can be found with them.
Write them. Dialogue with your congressman/woman. Reason with them.
The Filipino wins with Secretary Judy Taguiwalo at the helm of the DSWD.
Thank you, my friends.
pretty please, with cherry on top?
