What the Impeachment Trial of Chief Justice Corona Tells Me

There are mixed opinions surrounding the ongoing impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona. But there's only one message the trial tells me. The trial tells me that the rule of law in the Philippines is alive and well no matter how perceived its corrupt or disappointed Filipinos are with the country’s justice system. The Constitution remains the supreme law of the Philippines and it's designed by God to create order and a strong moral foundation for the country. A foundation strong enough to withstand "storms" and able to hold "bad fruits" in our government accountable for their actions. Clearly no one is above the law.

Repeating what I said in a previous article, it's up to us parents to teach our children about politics and tell them what they see in the news are great lessons in what they ought not imitate. News like the Corona impeachment is a teaching opportunities to tell them that doing the right thing always matter.
