On the eve of Vice President Leni Robredo’s 52nd birthday, a book chronicling the exemplary life of her late husband, Jesse, was launched with Filipino kids in thoughts.
Robredo on Saturday (April 22) attended the launch of “Nay, ano ba ang bayani?” in Cubao along with her daughters Tricia and Jillian.
In her speech, the Vice President mentioned she was grateful that her husband, who used to be mayor of Naga City and inside secretary, turned the topic of a kids’s book.
“Itong children’s book na ito, ay talagang napakalaking regalo. Hindi lang po para sa aking kaarawan, pero regalo din para sa anak ko, na muli isinasabuhay ang kanilang tatay, na talaga naman pong pinagyayabang namin parati,” she mentioned.
Robredo mentioned she hopes Jesse’s life will encourage extra youth since his story is now in a book that’s simple to perceive.
