“We do not need another EDSA… for our country to move ahead. EDSA must be everyday. That means everyone understands he has an obligation to serve. That means reform is an every day activity. That means the daily grind is more important than the one-time heroic moment.” — Hon. Jesse M. Robredo
To honor Sec. Jesse, we will heed his call to be everyday heroes.

It was 2009 when I was assigned to coordinate then Naga Mayor Jesse Robredo for this interview. Back then, I had no idea who he was. And as he went on with the interview with Ms. Patricia Evangelista, I began to admire the man who transformed Naga from a third-class city in 1988 to first-class status in 1990.
This is one of my most unforgettable internship memories in Storyline.
I am one with the many Filipinos who are praying for the safe rescue of a good man.
