This will be my speech for the Closing Remarks for tonight's awarding ceremonies which will be held at Hotel Rembrandt in Tomas Morato Avenue Extension of Quezon City.
I only wrote it last night so it's really what's on the top of my mind. It's not hifalutin as what most people would expect from a speech. I made as simple as possible but as meaningful as can be. After all, we are a simple blog site that grew into more than what it could possibly be thanks to the many supporters who stood by our side and kept patting us on the back encouraging us that no matter how controversial or challenging the path less travelled.
We are still trekking the path that lead towards the most righteous destination. A destination that would remain endless - no end of the road for us - since life should be a continuous travel that should be filled with fun and fervor. Life should be what we want it to be and not what others expect it to be.
Many have said we are so stubborn to listen. But imagine what would have happened if we did. We would have not been at this particular point in our lives. We would have been just one of the guys trying to blend in. What we did was to stand out from the crowd. We created our own branding. We made our site the Pambansang Blog ng Pilipinas - unminding the hits, views, rankings, etc., - We did not concerned ourselves of the numbers because it does not really translate to what we really want to achieve - A legacy to be remembered by all Filipinos.
