    At 1:00 pm, the Vice President attended the launching of Istorya ng Pag-asa (INP) in De La Salle-College of St. Benilde (DLS-CSB) and De La Salle University (DLSU) in Hotel Benilde, Maison De La Salle, Manila. The event featured the stories of students from DLSU and DLS-CSB.

    In her speech, the Vice President told the many inspiring stories of ordinary Filipinos that were featured in previous Istorya ng Pag-asa launchings. She emphasized that there is a need to tell these stories to bring back hope in these times. “This is what the program exactly is all about. Hindi lang for us to feel good, but to speak of hope, each and every day. Sa mundo nating ginagalawan ngayon, iyong pinag-uusapan namin kanina, Brothers, marami ngayong nangyayari that are already acceptable but many years ago, hindi natin ma-imagine na would be acceptable. Baka we each do our share in bringing back – alam mo iyon – iyong kindness, goodness, decency in everyone as the norm. Tingin ko, we are not being asked of very big things, but just the things—simple things—that matter each and every day. And iyon iyong gusto natin dito: for us to look for more stories of hope, for us to look for more inspiring stories that we can tell over and over again.”
