    Message of VP Leni Robredo for the New Year

    Message of VP Leni Robredo for the New Year

    I, my family, and the whole Office of the Vice President join you in welcoming the New Year.

    This is a time for renewed hopes, renewed chances, and renewed strength to face what lies ahead. This is also a time to look back at the year that passed, and the lesson that came along with it: That despite the many difficulties we faced, we pulled through because we joined hands and helped one another.

    This New Year, I pray that we choose to stay on this path: Let us share in each other’s burdens and open our hearts to the truth that all of our experiences and futures are connected and intertwined. We look forward to a brighter and more prosperous 2022 because we understand that there is strength to be drawn from each other, and that this strength will always be enough to get us through any challenge that lies ahead.

    Again, a blessed and hopeful 2022 to all.
