Reaction Paper on SONA 2015 Essay
Hanggat buo ang ating pananalig at tiwala, at hanggat nagsisilbi tayong lakas ng isat isa, patuloy nating mapapatunayan na, the Philippine is worth anxious(p) for, the Filipino is worth living for, at idadagdag ko naman po The Filipino is definitely worth fighting for. This is the highlight of the fifth State of the Nation spoken communication by His Excellency Benigno Simeon Aquino III. The stand of believing in the democracy, believing that people with the government can make a change within his term. Since the death of his parents, the bequest still continues and I guess the legacy is in his heart believing that its not too late for changes in the Philippine government position and in any case the economic and social status of the country. Based on the past State of the Nation apportion of President Aquino, critics said that, this State of the Nation Address is not clearly stating the change that they expected to be. The changes within his term is expected to be clear and m ust lift the Philippines from being the Sick Man of Asia to the uprising Country in Asia.see morereaction paper about sona 2017But for me, I guess for about 5 years of his term, I welcome him and his works in making everything possible is evident through his achievements. For the past five years, the system of education through his leadership is I guess changed and globally leveled the foreign and international standards. An example of this is the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). The Disbursement Acceleration Program contributed 1.6 billion pesos to TESDAs Training for Work learning Program. This amount enabled the graduation of 223,615 beneficiaries. 66 percent of theseor, 146,731 graduatesnow have jobs. This is just one of the amazing changes that he and his leadership has made differences from the past administrations. Also, the poverty in the Philippines, not although changed bigtime but I guess through the littlesteps, we can make change. We must invest in our most valuable resource The Filipino people. Data from the National Economic Development Authority shews to this success.According to them, the 27.9 percent poverty rate during the first semester of 2012 went down to 24.9 percent for the same period in 2013. These three percentage points are equivalent to 2.5 million Filipinos who have crossed the poverty line. There are still many achievements that the President stated and had attest his success, or should I say OUR success. The Filipino people must help and also lift themselves up if they want change in the society, the government and also their own lives. Just like what the President said, Give a man a slant and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The change must also come through the ideals of change by the people. I guess, if we want a change, a more evident change, it must come from the people. Helping themselves first, making themselves worthy for the society, and throug h this they can make change, with the partnership of the President and the government. After all, this is a DEMOCRACY, by the people, for the people.
