The recently-concluded SONA of President Benigno Aquino III was really a shock for all Filipinos; because after almost a decade (or two), the contents of the annual Presidential speeches to the joint session of Congress were all platforms and fresh tomatoes, though the problems remain--and worse--became more widespread. It served as an eye-opener to those who were ignorant and those who do not care.
Like what he said in the closing moments of his speech: "Ang nakikialam, walang hanggan ang reklamo; ang nakikilahok ay nakikibahagi sa solusyon." He admits, though covertly, that he cannot change this country alone, making the people his "boss". Thus, it is every Filipino's duty to part of the solution rather than to bombard the government with nonsense complains.
