Speech of President Aquino at the 113th anniversary of the national police service, August 8, 2014

Bilang mga tagapaglingkod ng sambayanang Pilipino, pag-uwi natin sa bahay, pagharap natin sa salamin, dapat nating itanong: Nagawa ko ba ang dapat kong gawin sa araw na ito? Kung ang sagot natin ay oo, hamunin pa natin ang ating sarili, at sabihing: Bukas, hihigitan ko pa ang aking nagawa. Sa ganitong paraan, masisiguro natin ang pagdating ng panahong ligtas na na nakakapaglaro ang mga bata sa kalsada; panatag ang kalooban ng mga umuuwi galing opisina, at ang mga alagad ng batas ay kumpiyansa sa kanilang kakayahan na ipagtanggol hindi lang ang kanilang mga sarili at mahal sa buhay, kundi ang lahat ng Pilipinong nagtitiwala sa kanila.
