Jerome Jacuba a 28-year old 2nd lieutenant who was blinded when shrapnel exploded near his eyes delivered his heartfelt message and shared the story of his struggles before he personally met President Duterte.

Acuba said before President Duterte visited the AFP Medical Center, he locked himself for 4 weeks and already fell hopeless. But everything changes when the President personally visited and comforted him.

“Marami pa akong gustong gawin, marami pa akong pangarap sa buhay, yung mga anak ko paano na sila? hindi ko na makikita yung paglaki nila, hindi ko na makikita yung kung gaano sila kagaling mag drawing, kung gaano sila kagaling sumayaw, pero gayon pa man, simula noong bumisita doon si Presidente talagang nagbago ang lahat, at ito’y dahil sa isang panalangin” Jacuba said during his speech at MalacaƱang on Monday.

He also compared his encounter with Duterte to the story of Bartimaeus, a blind man in the Bible.

“Noong iniisa isa niya yung mga pasyente doon, saka noong lumapit siya sakin, yun palang sana yung pagkakataon na makakaharap ko at makikita sa personal ang isang Presidente, pinagkait pa, so simula non, nakita niyo naman sa mga Social Media na maraming salamat sa inyo Sir[Duterte] kasi nag viral ako dahil sayo” Jacuba said.

Jacuba also expressed his gratitude to President since after they met, many blessings came to his life that gives him new hope.

“Lahat ng mga blessings sir dumating na sakin sir simula nung dumating ka doon sir, masayang masaya ako sir kasi napansin ako ng karamihan doon lalo na yung mga organization na mga naging daan para magkaroon ulit ako ng pag asa”

He also called President Duterte as a Hero of the heroes.

“Kung kami man ay isang Bayani sir, ikaw yung Bayani ng mga Bayani, ikaw yung Bayani namin sir, ikaw yung nagbigay buhay, ikaw yung nag lift up ng morale naming mga sundalo, ikaw lang yung Presidente na nagikot lahat ng mga kampo, napaka sinsero yan talaga yung leader talaga na sinsero sa kanyang ginagawa”
