Commemorating the 28th EDSA People Power anniversary, President Benigno S. Aquino III led a town hall meeting with the victims of last year’s natural calamities — 7.2 magnitude earthquake and Typhoons “Pablo” and “Yolanda” — that struck the Visayas region.
In his speech, President Aquino reminded them of the bigger meaning of EDSA People Power, on how it is to join hands, rise up and face life’s challenges together.
He also thanked the town’s people who have contributed and assisted their fellow Filipinos during the onslaught of natural disasters, helped them go through the ordeal, and to start anew.
The President also called on everyone to continue their faith in God and to raise the spirit of “Bayanihan” in every community, just like how the 1986 EDSA People Power proved to the world that nothing is impossible in an empowered and united citizenry.
