View this post on Instagram Hey kids! Make your vote count, go out and register! Be part of a fundamental process of our hard earned democracy, our right to vote. Let us not forget, especially on a day like today, that the freedom to choose your own administration, your own leaders, is a right that has been earned through the hardships suffered by past generations. It is a privilege and more importantly our duty as citizens to uphold this very precious democratic process – one’s right to choose, and in the bigger picture, to affect change. Many think that their individual vote doesn’t really matter in the larger scheme of things. A mindset I admit I am guilty of too. But I realized that we should never underestimate one single vote. Sure, maybe my vote alone won’t be a deciding factor, but if a majority of people thinking along the same lines do decide to cast their votes, then that WILL make a difference. So let’s all make sure we be counted. The future is in your hands! Registration is on going at your local Comelec office until September 29th! #GoRegisterPH A post shared by Diego Castillo (@dayglo1) on Sep 20, 2018 at 6:17pm PDT
