If you’ve lost hope for the Philippines or at the brink of giving up on the country, please find time to listen to Justice Leonen’s message at the 2020 Oathtaking Ceremony.
There is still hope.

I would recommend Justice Leonen’s speech during the oath-taking of the 2019 Bar exam passers.
It’s just a breath of fresh air hearing one of the justices speaking against injustice, oppression, corruption, democratic decay, and many more amid a crisis.https://t.co/WujxHPFhOY
