This is for Real

“This is For Real”
By Lynne Mañalac (Manila)

When a friend introduced to me “Phil Jury” it was total alien to me. I said “YES” to the invitation of being part of it because I’ve been missing political terms and issues that I used to discuss during my college days. It was a shallow “YES!”

Immersion day came. Information about Phil Jury was discussed and deepened. Everything changed when I read about an article from “Phil Jury” UK. I got inspired and I started to dream of my own nation enjoying the fullness of justice and equality among the people. I started to think of my own children’s future once these are realized.

We formulated the vision out of our own aspirations of seeing the Pilipino nation experience the true essence of justice through an effective and impartial judiciary system where ordinary citizens are given significant participation in a trial by jury system. I started to see myself immersed and deeply involved in promoting Kayumanggi.

I realized, it’s not a joke….Each of us has to be committed to put our vision into action. Thus, we came up with our mission. We agreed to commit ourselves to help educate the people on the proper administration of justice; to be vigilant on all judicial issues of our nation; and to promote respect, equality and fairness among mankind.

But to accomplish everything needs time, dedication and financial stability, but I believe that if we are truly into it, everything we aspire for will happen. It is possible!

I am very eager to start and work for the realization of our mission and vision. I was in total awe when I heard Amy over the phone and Tim talking about their own aspirations for our country.

I am a Christian Living teacher, bringing Christ closer to my students; evangelizing and catechizing about Christ being merciful and fair. I teach my students justice, of fairness, of good values, and I believe God wanted me to widen my reach, not just to my students, He is telling me now that I need to educate and help others enjoy justice to the fullest. Not now, but in God’s time
it will happen. Everything will come true.

Hand in hand, committed as we are, I am very positive that everything that we aspire to attain will happen. For real! Not just in papers, not just in words but in reality it will happen, and that I am completely involve and part of it for REAL.
