I am proud to be a Filipino. Our Lord God’s plan is for me to live my life as a Filipino and therefore, in my heart and in my mind, I shall always be a Filipino wherever I may be in the world. God wants me to belong to the Filipino family and as such, I am a “kapatid” [brother], kapamilya at kapuso to anyone and everyone who is Filipino, wherever he or she may be on earth.
You will recognize me with polite words “po at opo” in my sentences. We also have our signs of respects with kissing the hand of our elders and saying mano po. You wilkneel the cheerfulness on my face and the warmth of my hospitality. Most important of all, you will know me by my loving and caring heart when you are in need of help, even if you are a stranger.
I am Filipino. I am who I am today because of the role God wants me to play.
I am born to attain my dreams. God has equipped me, within me and around me, with all the essentials I need to succeed in this world. God truly wants nothing but the best because I am His precious child.
I am uniquely me. I am destined for greatness.
I am Filipino. I am born of freedom, in a free country. As such, I dedicate my freedom to ensuring that my people and country shall always remain free. I shall use my freedom to help other people, in my country or in other parts of the world, gain their own freedom.
I am born out of God’s immeasurable love, in a country and in a world that can only be made beautiful by love. Love is the reason why God made me. It is what He wants me to bring into this world, so love shall be who I am.
I am born as part of the whole, as part of the answer to the question, as part of the solution to the problem, as part of the hope to our people. I am born to help the Filipino become great not only in the eyes of the world but, more so, in the eyes of our Lord.
I am Filipino. I am a faithful child of God. I shall live my life to the fullest to do God’s work on earth, to help build a productive country for my Filipino family, and a better world for all humanity. And soon the world shall see the full measure of the greatness of Filipino, for truly the world has yet to see what God can do to and through a child, like the Filipino, who is faithful to the Lord “
