What we think
What we think…

  • We see multiple possibilities that could benefit the US.

  • Not only is this a way to show that we are reliable and caring, but that we are strong.

  • Also we feel as if the US were to ever face a difficult situation, the Philippines would do what ever they can to help out.

  • We feel as if the US is doing the right thing by helping and supporting the Philippines.
