DZIQ: Reyes ‘dared to sacrifice for common good’, says ex-president Ramos

MANILA, Philippines – Former president Fidel V. Ramos praised former defense secretary and Armed Forces chief Angelo Reyes for “daring to sacrifice for the common good” and hoped that his sacrifice “was not in vain.”

Ramos made the statement to media Wednesday when he paid his respects to Reyes at the Ascension Chapels in Quezon City. Reyes committed suicide Tuesday amid allegations that he was part of the multimillion-peso fund scam in the military.

In the interview aired over Radyo Inquirer, Ramos, a former military chief himself, said Reyes embodied the three pillars of the Ramos Peace and Development Foundation – caring, sharing, and daring.

“The caring and sharing are easy to do,” said Ramos in Filipino.

But he said that daring meant something else because it meant “daring to sacrifice for the common good.”


My pulis take: Exactly. Ramos got it right on the button.
