Dear Chancellor Padilla,
Not all leaders can inspire,
but you do.
Not all leaders can lead during great change,
but you can.
Not all leaders can care for others,
but you have.
For all these and more --
for the things you have done for the UP Manila community and the country --
we wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
May you receive all the happiness, blessings, and support you need.
The UP Manila community
