Message to the National Bureau of Investigation at Its Flag-Raising Ceremony

Director Dante Gierran, mga namumuno sa NBI, mga kawani ng Bureau, magandang umaga sa ating lahat. For the first time in many years, I’m with a friendly National Bureau of Investigation.

I have an amusing story to tell.  When I was a young kid of six, probably seven years of age, I have always dreamt of becoming an NBI agent. From numerous life-threatening exploits narrated by my late grandfather, who fought the Spaniards at a very young age as a Katipunero in our historic province of Cavite, I became instantly fascinated by people whose bread and butter was risking their lives to fight for their country.

The moment I first set my bare foot at the soil of our barrio’s one and only elementary school, my mind was already set on becoming a lawyer someday, not to prosecute or defend litigants in the judicial process but to simply become a regular agent of the National Bureau of Investigation.

Sen. Lacson’s preliminary statement at the hearing:

My mother used to tell me during my younger years to value education like no other. In order to remain competitive in this modern world, there is definitely a need to think new and do new. An economist, Ben Bernanke, once stated: “Research itself provides an important long-run perspective of the issues that we face on a day-to-day basis.”

It is for this reason that we are all gathered this morning to deliberate Senate Resolution 287, which seeks to establish the Senate Institute on Legislative Studies and Training Center (SILSTC) – probably pwede natin tawagin for brevity, Senate Institute – filed by no less than our Senate President, Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III.
