SENATOR Teofisto "TG" Guingona III on Tuesday emphasized the importance of knowing what truly matters and of palabra de honor (word of honor), especially this campaign season.

During the re-electionist senator's visit in the Province of Quezon, he underscored the need for Filipinos to cultivate the valuable traits of being able to know what is important in life and being able to keep one's promises. Guingona further named a few notable figures who hailed from the vibrant Southern Luzon province and whose lives are exemplary manifestation of the said attributes.

"Simple lang ang dahilan kung bakit binanggit ko ang kahalagahan ng kaalaman kung ano ang mahalaga sa buhay at ng pagkakaroon ng isang salita: Kung alam mo ang mahalaga sa'yo, iyon ang susundin mo, at kung ikaw ay may isang salita, pinapahalagahan mo ang dignidad mo at ang dignidad ng kausap mo," Guingona stated.

According to Guingona, knowing what matters and keeping true to one's words may also serve as the Filipinos' guidelines in selecting candidates who vow to uphold the citizens' rights and uplift the lives of the impoverished.

"If they [candidates] are true to what truly matters, especially for the Filipinos, they will be true to their words. If candidates are truly in touch with serving others and serving God, it will not only show in their words but in their track record," Guingona said.

The lawmaker seeking a second term in the Senate has visited the municipalities of Mauban, Tayabas, and Lucena. He is also set to make rounds in Lucban and Infanta.
