In the said forum, the very first forum where Retired Lt. Col. George Rabusa had to face young students from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (where I have been teaching for almost 15 years) and other students from all others schools, he was asked on what "pabaon" (send-off gift) can he give to the students. Rabusa answered, "Huwag nyo akong tularan, just follow ang tuwid na landas just like what our President [Aquino] said."
