I hope this impeachment trial has served us a lot of lessons and as an eye-opener. Enough for the fragmentation we ourselves are making. Our nation needs to heal and move on for the better. Let us unite as one people with one goal in mind, and one voice. The impeachment trial should not only be for chief justice Corona (if these administration is truly sincere in its campaign for good governance and to eradicate graft and corruption), but for every elected or appointed official in the government including those in the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Philippine National Police, and so on and so forth with dark intentions. I am sure we have a lot of them to be impeached or convicted of any crime in their respective fields while in service. Still, as I kneel down to pray, I believe that God will give us men. Men who will rule over this poor nation of ours. Men who are exactly what was described in Josiah Gilbert Holland's beautiful poem, which said:
- God, give us men! A time like this demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office can not buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor; men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue
And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking!
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty, and in private thinking;
For while the rabble, with their thumb-worn creeds,
Their large professions and their little deeds,
Mingle in selfish strife, lo! Freedom weeps,
Wrong rules the land and waiting Justice sleeps.
