Main Topics for Discussion: (Highlighted)

Acknowledging His Limitations and Call for Unity:

President Rody Duterte's call for unity is indeed sincere as he acknowledge that leading the Philippines cannot be done by himself alone but he needs all the help of every Filipinos. His sincere voice caught the attentions of many Filipinos and the sincerity in his eyes to unite as one touched the hearts and minds of every Filipinos witnessing his inaugural speech.

"No leader, however strong, can succeed at anything of national importance or significance unless he has the support and cooperation of the people he is tasked to lead and sworn to serve."

For Duterte as Filipinos we have to unite as one, he encourage unity in the government, unity with those who are opposing the government, unity with the international community and unity with ourselves.

Revealing the Real Problems of the Philippines:

Revealing the real problems in the country showed what every Filipino should expect under the Duterte administration. Pres. Duterte narrates his priorities as President, fighting corruption, criminality and drugs and he also revealed that the real problem in the Philippines is the people's lost of trust and confidence in the government.

As his first order of business, Pres. Duterte orders all government agencies to speed up the processing of government documents and to eliminate redundancies.

Realizing Heneral Luna's Observation of Who Our Real Enemies:

Pres. Duterte quote the words uttered by National Artist F. Sionil Jose that we have become our worst enemies. Heneral Luna became famous for his statement that "Mga kababayan may higit tayong kalaban kaysa mga Amerikano - Ang ating sarili."

According to Duterte "Love of country, subordination of personal interests to the common good, concern and care for the helpless and the impoverished - these are among the lost and faded values that we seek to recover and revitalize as we commence our journey towards a better Philippine."

Quoting US Presidents:

Pres. Duterte borrowed quotes from famous US Presidents and this shows the kind of leadership that he will emulate as head of the 100 million Filipinos.

"The test of government is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide for those who have little.” – Franklin Delano Roosevelt"

Pres. Duterte will be a champion of the poor and reading this we might see major programs in poverty alleviation and providing more opportunity for those who have less in life.

“You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong; You cannot help the poor by discouraging the rich; You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer; You cannot further the brotherhood by inciting class hatred among men." - Abragam Lincoln

He is projecting that he will be a president for all, that he will not favor anyone and instead will work hand in hand for the country.  It is very inspiring to see a president who sees the value of everyone. This is a very rare occasion and the first time I had seen since I was born in this country.

The Inaugural Speech of President Duterte is a Good Start for Every Filipino:

As an overall personal observation of the way President Duterte sincerely delivered his inaugural speech, we could look forward for a better Philippines. I really admire him more than ever. I also have high hopes for his administration and I strongly believe that this is the very first time a President had realized the real problem of the Philippines and offered a solution to help move forward towards a common goal.

Our new president needs our wholehearted support and we should give it to him.
