Marami tayong natutunan sa pandemyang COVID-19, ani Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte, kabilang na ang halaga ng buhay ng tao at ang mga relasyon natin sa isa’t isa.

Sa kanya pang New Year message, pinuri ng Pangulo ang “distinct resilience” ng mga Pilipino na lampasan ang mapanghamong taong 2020.

“Today is a joyful day, a time for new beginnings and a time to be hopeful. We ended the previous year with so much difficulties and trials, but with much gratitude. It was because we endured everything – sustained by our distinct resilience as a people,” wika ni Duterte sa isang pahayag, Enero 1.

“Now, we march on to a new year wiser, stronger and more prepared for the challenges ahead. We are given another chance to serve our people, and for us in government, this is another opportunity to render public service with genuine compassion and malasakit,” dagdag niya.

Pinaalala niyang ngayong bagong taon, dapat magpasalamat ang madla sa mga natatanggap nilang biyaya.

Tiwala rin umano siyang makikita rin ng lahat ang “brighter days” dahil naniniwala aniya tayo sa “indomitable spirit” ng Pinoy.

“The COVID-19 pandemic may have cost us so many lives & material resources, but we also learned so much from it. We learned the value of human life and relationships with each other. We understood what it means to be a family, a community, a nation. We learned to share and to look after the welfare of our brethren,” sambit ni Duterte.

“The New Year 2021, let us be mindful of all the blessings we have received and on how fortunate we are. Let our grateful hearts guide and inspire us to always do good and make a difference in the world.”

“I am confident that all of us will see brighter days ahead because we believe in the indomitable spirit of the Filipino. Isang masagana at mapagpalang Bagong Taon sa ating lahat!” saad niya pa.
