President Aquino also expressed his sincerest hope that the efforts of the authors, Mr. Efren Cruz and Ms. Neni Sta. Romana Cruz, will bear fruit.
“That this book will be a jumping-off point for Filipinos, especially those from the younger generation: that they will be encouraged to learn from the past, and consequently, to do their part in ensuring that the country can look forward to a far brighter future,” he added.
