Nagpapasalamat po ako sa Jesus Is Lord Church sa tiwala at pakikiisa ninyo sa mga inisyatiba ng gobyernong tibagin ang korupsyon sa pamahalaan, upang maiangat ang antas ng pamumuhay ng ating kababayan, lalong-lalo na po ang mas nangangailangan. Makakaasa kayong dodoblehin pa ng inyong gobyerno ang pagsisikap nitong maghatid ng malawakan at pangmatagalang benepisyo sa mas nakakaraming Pilipino.
I believe that the past four years and three months have shown you the sincerity and, more importantly, the results of our commitment to turn the tide in the Philippines. Reforms in key systems and processes have led to leaks being plugged and resources being maximized; more contractors and investors are not only registering interest in infrastructure projects, but are competing to build what we need … All our successes reaffirm these basic truths: Integrity works, reform works, and the Philippines works.

This is perhaps a significant part of the responsibility you bear as members of the press today: To wield the truth not only as a check against public officials like myself, but also as a beacon of hope for the millions who rely on you. Without doubt, if we all fulfill our individual roles in the grand task of nation building, then we can all propel this country of ours to heights never before seen; together, we can give rise to a Philippines we can be proud to bequeath to future generations.

Today, as we salute those who gave their lives here at Red Beach, and as we continue a pilgrimage of memory that began in Bataan and Corregidor, and which culminates in Manila next year, we remember the brave; we mourn the dead; and most of all, we commit to peace as the true legacy of a conflict that should never be repeated, and look to a shared future, founded on the trust we now extend towards each nation of good will, and nourished by the freedom we so cherish.

Malinaw po ang direksyon kung saan natin itinitimon ang Pilipinas: Isang bansang malaya sa gulo at peligro; isang bansang maunlad at mapayapa, na binubuo ng mga Pilpinong nabibigyang-lakas para mapasakamay ang masagana’t masiglang buhay, ‘di lamang ngayon, kundi sa mga susunod pang henerasyon. Kaya naman, sa bawat pagsagwan tungo sa katuparan ng misyong ito, samahan ninyo ako. Sulitin natin ang bawat sandali at pagkakataong maialay ang ating oras, lakas, at husay para sa kapwa at bayan, nang sa wakas ay marating na natin ang Pilipinas na matagal na nating inaasam.
The gains we have made in the pursuit of peace show what can be achieved when we are able to restore trust and mutual respect. Indeed: They mirror precisely what the entire Philippines has achieved these past few years, because of a people who have rediscovered their trust in government, a government that is determined to do right by them, one that will continue to stand for them.
