New Year’s Message of the Gov. Bong Lacson As we welcome 2021 and recall the trials that dominated 2020, let us not overlook the triumphs of the human spirit demonstrated throughout the adversity, — the courage and commitment of our frontliners, the resolve of the government to contain and handle the pandemic, the charity of volunteers, the resilience of the elderly and the children, the industry of those in the service sector, the adaptability of the business sector, and the genius of the experts in formulating a cure. These are testimonies of what humanity is capable of.
Let us allow the lessons of 2020 strengthen our resolve to be better individuals and members of society, for if there is one truth presented by the COVID-19 crisis, it is the undeniable reality of our interdependence. No instance has shown as clearly as this pandemic, that what happens to one person can so rapidly affect many others. Thus the serious need for unity, respect and solidarity among all of us. The world is reminding us, quite strongly this time, that we are our brother’s keeper.
To all my beloved Negrenses, may this new year bring recovery, peace, and prosperity for all of us. Armed with our ardent prayers and faith in GOD, let us face 2021 with hope and confidence.
Happy New Year! Stay safe, and let us remain vigilant in the observance of our health and safety protocols.
GOD bless us all!
