Hi all, it’s me again, Mar Roxas.
Sorry for the silence. I felt it best and appropriate given the circumstances.
Well, we didn’t make it. Disappointing and sad but ganyan talaga ang buhay.
I want to thank you all, each and every one of you for all your hard work and support. But most of all, I want to thank you for believing – in me, in our values and principles, and in the idea that we as a people, and the Philippines, are and can be better than where we are, that our future is and can be brighter than our today.
On behalf of my whole family, maraming maraming salamat sa tiwala, suporta at malasakit. I am so very humbled and honored to have been in the trenches and frontline with you all.
I don’t know what comes next. For now, I encourage you to do what I’m going to do – hug my family, nurture them, learn some more, work some more, love some more… in short, try to live life to the fullest.
In this way, we can revive our spirit, and get strong. Our country continues to need us and our best efforts.
Mabuhay ang Pilipino at ang Pilipinas.
