Undoubtedly, the AFP and PNP can play a big role in the propagation of Philippine Sports. First, it can provide a sustainable career path for athletes who have the passion to propagate their respective sports. But more importantly, it has the potential to significantly upgrade the country’s overall sports programs through a comprehensive and systematic grassroots sports development program for the youth, thus helping create a healthier, more disciplined, and more physically and mentally-endowed society.
I dream of a stronger, more resilient, and proud Filipino people. But even before we can bring that to fruition, we can make a test case of Bohol. We can make Bohol a sports giant.
Chairman Butch has undoubtedly been the principal reason behind the great turn-around in Philippine Sports. Whoever takes the role of PSC Chairman after the successful stint of Chairman Butch will have big shoes to fill. We hope that the next Chairman will heed the recommendations of the outgoing Chairman. We hope too that he will be blessed with the same passion, the same dedication for the athlete, and the same vision for sports development and nation-building as a whole. To Chairman Butch, you will be remembered and greatly revered. We could not have asked for more. Our salute to you.
When bells for us are rung; And our last taps is sung;
Let generations see our country free!
Oh, lead to righteous way; Those solid ranks of gray;
Thy virtues to display; Academy, Oh hail to thee.
To our dearly departed mistahs, our sincerest gratitude, and our snappy salute!!!
In this season of giving, let us not forget those less fortunate in life. The recent super-typhoon that hit the country brought much misery. Many were already getting ready for the Christmas celebration. But then disaster struck.
With haunting winds screaming like a banshee, Super Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai) banged into the country and wreaked havoc over a large swath of territory covering the Visayas and Mindanao on that fateful Thursday, December 16. The 15th storm to hit the Philippines this year, it was the strongest storm by far, and the deadliest.
