Peace and fewer calamities for the Philippines.

This is what Vice President Leni Robredo wished for the new year.

She acknowledged that 2017 did not end well for Filipinos, that’s why she wishes for two things.

“Sa akin, hindi lang siguro isa, pero una, katahimikan para sa ating bansa. Pangalawa, sana mabawasan na iyong mga sakuna,” Robredo said.

(for me, it is not only one, but first, peace for our country. Second, I hope there will be less calamities.)

Aside for a peaceful 2018, she also wished for zero violence and killings for the Philippines.

“Kaya iyong wish natin, na sa maiwasan na iyong mga ganito. Maiwasan iyong away, maiwasan na iyong patayan; at magkaisa tayong mga Pilipino.” She said.

(So, my wish is that we are to avoid fighting, killings, and we should unit as Filipinos.)

Robredo shared that she spent the holidays with her three daughters - Aika, Tricia, and Jillian.

“Christmas and New Year have always been spent with Jesse’s siblings and their families. This year was an exception,” Robredo said in her Facebook post.

Robredo said that Filipinos were “very polarized” in the past year and expressed her hopes that it will be different in 2018.

“Hindi naging maganda iyong 2017 as far as pagkakaisa is concerned—masyadong polarized iyong mga Pilipino noong mga nakaraang buwan at nakaraang taon,” she said.

She added that 2017 did not end well because of the consecutive disasters that struck different parts of the country.

“Matagal na nating pinagtatrabahuhan na zero casualties sana tayo sa mga sakuna, pero iyong tanong ngayon, bakit ang daming namatay? Tingin ko panahon ito para i-assess ulit kung ano iyong mali na ginagawa natin,” She said.
