Do you remember the pledge recited by the people who went into the Inaugural Address of President Noynoy Aquino? If you do then that same petition is now being spread online and currently has close to 500 signatures. The petition called "Panata sa Pagbabago" or "Oath for Change" was started by "Pagod Ka Na Bang Maging si Juan?," a socio-political blog.
The petition which can be SIGNED HERE both contains the complete text of the pledge as well as personal pledges of those people signing the petition.
"I love my country; it is the land of my birth; it is the country the Lord chose for me. Noynoy is a blessing for our country. Let us support him-- and let us do our part for bringing about change in this country. How? there is much we can do... but we can start with simple things -- how about following Alex Lacson's "12 Little Things Every Filipino Can Do to Help Our Country," says Peggy Vera.
Another petition signer, Evelyn Legazpi said "I love the Philippines and I want God to bless it. I will support all the changes that the President will implement for the improvement of the country. I will pray for the President and the other leaders of the government that God will give them wisdom as they formulate policies and make decisions for a better Philippines."
"I vow to give my 100% support the new administration and to be a better law-abiding Filipino citizen. Change does not happen overnight. It starts within ourselves. Sulong Pilipino! Sulong Bagong Pilipinas!" says Marie Joyce Negapatan.
Petition signers are not only Filipinos residing in the Philippines but also from other countries like the Middle East, Netherlands, the United States, Canada and others.
