FVR lauds Gordon’s movement

Former President Fidel Ramos lauded Senator Richard Gordon and his Bagumbayan Movement Volunteers for a New Philippines.

The movement was launched last April 27 at the Manila Hotel where they also conducted their national Convention at the Manila Hotel last April 27.

In his message to Bagumbayan, Ramos congratulated the movement for its noble vision of effecting genuine change in government and society through vision, values and volunteerism.

As a token, of his commendation, the former president gave Gordon a book that contains writings on Lapu-Lapu and Jose Rizal, who are the role models and inspiration’s members and volunteers.

Leon Herrera, Bagumbayan president said the courage and wisdom of Lapu-Lapu and Rizal have inspired Bagumbayan volunteers to break the walls of apathy and cynicism and face the challenges of building a nation that is enabled, ennobled and free.

Ramos expressed support to Bagumbayan’s call for change the way he supported the transformational efforts of Subic volunteers in 1992.

The former President saw the rise of Filipino volunteerism in Subic when then Olongapo mayor and now Senator Gordon, a founding member of Bagumbayan, led 8,000 volunteers to rise up from the challenges brought by the departure of the American military form the naval base in Subic.
