This video was taken at least 2 years ago, but its message is universal and never obsolete. It is the kind of video that you watch today and then you click and watch again, just to remind yourself of its lessons. And the lessons here are even more substantial in these times when it is raining cats, dogs and pork.
Prof Winnie Monsod, arguably one of the best professors and economists in the country, takes a habit of giving a speech at the last day of her Economics 100.1 class in UP Diliman. Thanks to cheap and accessible technology, a student was able to capture the moment and was gracious enough to share it. Pardon the irrevocable, unapologetic UPD pride if you do not share my alma mater. But I trust that the rest of her valuable message is deeply applicable to all.
To saving the Philippines. To honor and excellence.
