@ Zobex, true as it may seems your perception regarding the corruption in our country that will change I hope with our new leadership.
Am proud to be a Pilipino and one reason is this.

In memory of CJ Jose Abad Santos

      Friday, May 4th, 2012Seventy years ago, at 2 p.m. of May 7 (some historians say May 2), 1942, the fifth chief justice of the Philippine Supreme Court, Jose Abad Santos, was shot to death by Japanese occupation forces for refusing to swear allegiance to the Japanese flag. At that time, he was acting president of the Philippines, having been appointed by President Manuel L. Quezon who left for the United States via Australia. On April 11, 1942, he and his son José Jr. were captured by the Japanese in Cebu and were taken to a concentration camp. When asked to cooperate with the Japanese, he refused to do so. The Japanese took him and his son to Parang, Cotabato, now in Maguindanao. The next day they were brought to Malabang, Lanao. Before he was shot to death, he was able to talk to his son. His poignant parting words were: “Don’t cry Pepito, my son. Show these people that you are brave. It is an honor to die for one’s country. Not everybody has that chance.”
