Vice President Leni Robredo has reminded graduates of the Pamantasang Lungsod ng Muntinlupa (PLMun) that there are things worth laying their lives for as they begin their journey in the real world.

In her speech Monday (June 25) at PLMun’s commencement rites, Robredo urged the graduates to take to heart the city’s motto of strength, wisdom and life.

“Sa pagtahak natin ng bagong landas, bukas at sa mga susunod na araw, sana’y isapuso natin ang mga katagang ito. Ito ang magsisilbing gabay at paalala, saanman kayo pumunta: na ang bawat isa sa atin ay may sapat na lakas, galing, at husay, para ialay ang ating buhay para sa iba—para sa mga bagay na mas higit pa sa atin,” she said.

Robredo said the graduates now have bigger responsibilities to face as graduates of PLMun.

“Ehemplo na kayo ngayon para sa iba pang mga mag-aaral, para sa inyong komunidad, na nagagawang posible ang imposible—basta’t mayroong sipag, tiyaga, at tiwala sa sarili,” she said.

Regardless of the paths they take, Robredo expressed hope that the PLMun graduates will offer their lives and talents in the service of the nation and the Filipino.
