Reaction Paper : 2011 State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III
Last 25th of July this year, the State Of the Nation Address was held. As far as I remember, President Benigno Aquino III won last election maybe because of the help of the economic background of his parents contributed upon us. His advertisements were obviously all connected to his parents’ personal background.
Way back 1970’s, that is, the deceased Benigno Aquino (Ninoy) had fight for the human rights against Former President Ferdinand Marcos that initiate the Martial Law occurrence.

When he died on 1983, his wife, Corazon Aquino, on the latter part was elected and became the 11th president of our country, signifying the essence of freedom by the presence of the yellow ribbon.
Going to the main subject matter, I somehow agreed with PNoy’s speech most mainly the things being focused on the future plans to our country. The changes that he wants to attain on our government aspects have been said. His plans seem fulfilling to the public, and I’m hoping that it’ll not be only a plan that is being thought of, but could be true someday. He also focused the “Wang-Wang” thing that refers to the usage of abusive power among the public officials in our country. In this mentality he wants this to be removed in our society. He also discussed the contributions he has made in our nation like having an improvement on our stock market.
The president reiterated his policy against corruption and abuse of power. He cited his wang-wang policy as a the symbol of change, not only in the streets but also in society.
