- The famous actress posted on Facebook to air her disappointment over the excessive political bickering in the country
- She urged the politicians to unite for the good of the country
- She also advised the public to do their part in honoring the sacrifices of the Philippines’s heroes for the country
On October 4, actress-host Sharon Cuneta expressed through her Facebook page her great disappointment and frustration over the seemingly unending political bickering in the Philippines.
“SANA MAGKAISA AT MAGKAAYOS-AYOS NA ANG LAHAT NG NAGSISILBI SA BANSA NATIN (I hope that all of the public servants in our country will finally have peace with each other). WALA NAMANG IBANG PARAAN (There is no other way),” Cuneta posted.
The actress added that if the politicians should strive to have peace and unity, the public should also do the same.
“DI LANG MGA POLITIKO ANG NAG-AAWAY (The politicians are not the only ones fighting), KUNDI TAYO-TAYO NA RING MGA MAGKAKAPATID NA PILIPINO (all of us Filipinos are also fighting with one another),” the Mega Star lamented.
She urged the Filipino netizens to stop being judgmental especially to the leaders of the country since everyone makes mistakes in their lives.
“Huwag na rin tayong magmalinis (Let us not act as if we are perfect people). WALA NAMANG PERPERKTONG LIDER OR TAO (There is no leader or person who is perfect). Bigayan na lang po sana tayo (Let us compromise with each other),” the acclaimed actress pointed out.
She also lamented that the sacrifices of Filipino heroes like Jose Rizal are being wasted due to the political bickering in the country.
Cuneta also applauded her husband – Senator Francis Pangilinan – for being an honest and trustworthy public servant of the country.
“Ang joke nga namin dito (Our joke here), kung yung iba may (if others have) unexplained wealth, si Kiko naman (Kiko, on the other hand, has) unexplained POVERTY," Cuneta posted.
Many netizens praised the Mega Star for her honest and heartfelt appeal, agreeing with her call for peace and unity nationwide.
