Our country really needs extraordinary solutions for extraordinary problems. We must now be part of a new movement for change. If indeed we really love our children then this is the time to come out and choose an extraordinary leader to solve our extraordinary solutions.

Advocates Academic College will certainly be part of this important movement in transforming this nation into greatness once more. Now is the time to unite, to move, to show how we care. Noynoy Aquino may not be perfect but he may be one candidate that we can trust.
