Leader of the light-A A +A
Saturday, August 17, 2013
ASCENDING the world’s highest summit of Mount Everest in the Himalayas is comparable to conquering overwhelming odds and obstacles in geographical history.
Travelers with tenacious hearts and spirits are the epitome of endurance.
Leadership is akin to reaching the blistering snow-filled summit of Mount Everest.
An outstanding leader must know how to climb the rugged terrain of crisis and constant problems. Thereafter, he can lead his team of varied talents to walk on a common path of goodness, goodwill and greatness.
Focusing in our local community we see that Mabalacat City Mayor Marino “Boking” Morales is a steward who profiles courage. Standing tall on the apex of excellence, he pronounces these thoughts:
“I call on our citizenry, men and women of honorable intentions who have the highest ideals of harmony, goodwill and compassion.
You and I are blessed sons and daughters of Mabalacat City.
Let the light shine in our beloved homeland. Spreading from our green farms to the bustling market centers, running from the verdant fields up to the energetic steel-and-glass industrial hub; truly, our development is zooming beyond measure.
Let the 21st century light up the hearts of our noble, energetic and honorable Cabalens (city mates)!”
What propels a city to ascend the peak of excellence?
What are the best practices of a city which unleashes an energy of growth?
The Bloomberg Rankings and Businessweek underscored these two ‘elan vital’ (vital) criteria which are:
1. Vision of a prosperous business style
2. Very pro-active citizen’s involvement? In our Kapampangan region, we see these dual assets stirring in the rising City of Mabalacat.
Dynamic men and women of Mabalacat who participate in making it to become the ‘Makati of the North’.
Crisscrossing its city gate are the bustling industries, trading enclaves and business core centers which steer the wheels of empowerment.
Synergizing with the Clark Economic Zone, they implement plans and programs in making Pampanga sustain its first-rate entryway in economic achievement. Employing its capable citizens to work in the economic zone. Their partnership links the bridge of total success.
Mayor Morales further asserts?
“We believe our city has a strong business pillar supported by peaceful loving denizens.
We know with the assistance of President Aquino, our dream to make Mabalacat City the region’s main financial gateway will be realized.”
You and I are one. We salute honorable local government stewards.
Like the Filipino brave mountaineers who surmounted the majestic Mount Everest in the Himalayas, we are co-journeyers in the terra firma of our home city. Transcending the rocky walls of doubts, darkness and devastation, we can choose to wave the banner of enthusiasm and empowerment.
Aslagan nakayu ning biyaya! May the sunlight of blessings shine in your hearts!
