DLSU makes history. Once again, all the Presidentiables (Excluding Erap Estrada) making them 8, came face to face to answer questions regarding their platforms, intentions and credibility to lead this Nation. And thanks to my Proffesors who were kind enough, i was able to attend and take photos of the said event.
The first challenge was to get inside the gates of DLSU. Guards implemented tight security for all outsiders who want to enter the Teresa Yuchengco Auditorium. It was scheduled that the South gate will welcome guests starting 11 to 1pm but when we arrived at 11:30, no more seats are available for visitors. They also followed a “No names in the list, NO ENTRY!” policy. (Well perhaps not, to those wearing green who are escorted by a seemingly respected person inside the Campus)
This time, armed with drums, posters and tarpaulins, the Green Archers showed what a warm welcome means for a fellow Lasallian and Presidentiable: Gibo Teodoro. (I just hope that would not be a checklist for voting this May 2010 )
During a live telecast, presence of mind and swift decision making skills are needed because every second counts. The forum was hosted by radio commentator and broadcast journalist: Ted Failon and it was aired live over ABS-CSB online and live telecast to all La Salle schools Nationwide.
I was wrong.
Buying a shirt like this was not as easy as buying a drink.
I only saw few students wearing this and i didn’t see anyone selling such.
For a very important commitment, only Erap Estrada failed to sit on those white comfortable sofas and didn’t receive the sizzling hot questions hurled by the students of DLSU-M.
Wearing sunshine-yellow shirts, Bangon Kabataan Volunteers watched over the live telecast inside the reserved room while enjoying free Ham and cheese sandwiches provided by the School.
Bangon Pilipinas standard bearer, Bro. Eddie C. Villanueva extending his regards and gratitude to the organizers and Students of De La Salle University – Manila.
Passionate service for God and country rather than popularity is the reason why these students bravely requested a photo with Bro. Eddie.
I agree with Willard Cheng. We still have four months to count before the historic
Election and the Youth’s choice could or should change.
