“Kaya tayo andito ngayon ay para palaguin ang ating mga sarili at ang ating samahan. Saan man tayo magpunta, sa bahay, sa trabaho, o kahit sa ibang lugar o bagong opisina, tanging ang ating karanasan at mga natutunan ang ating babaunin. Ang pagpapalago ng ating sarili ay isang hamon sa bawat isa. Sabay-sabay nating harapin at pagtulungan na punan at palakasin ang mga pagkukulang at kahinaan ng bawat isa sa atin, para sa patuloy nating pagbibigay ng maagap at mapagkalingang serbisyo para sa ating mga pinaglilingkuran.” Ms. Myrna cited during her opening remarks.
