The Preamble is the first part of the 1987 Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines. Every Filipino must know the Preamble and understand its meaning by heart. Most students in college who study law and political science memorize the Preamble as it is the introductory part of learning the Philippine Constitution. It is also important to master the words, purpose, and meaning behind them.
Every word is beautiful and meaningful. We also share the Tagalog or Filipino version of Preamble below.
We, the sovereign Filipino people, imploring the aid of Almighty God, in order to build a just and humane society, and establish a Government that shall embody our ideals and aspirations, promote the common good, conserve and develop our patrimony, and secure to ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of independence and democracy under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace, do ordain and promulgate this Constitution.

Preamble is made from different sort of FEARS, Doubt ,
Cowardness ,Uncertainties and a group of.destructors ,Collectors of happiness from painful crying Filipino families presently located in every firewalls of government Institution,Indeed,that was the negative side of our powerless right from its branches.Behind the truth in terms of power and wellness negativity still in tacked. ,. Strong minded filipinos made a set of maze to act in open new objectives needed by society known as democratic law that Filipino people should implement and not just by law makers.
Everydoors in our democratic land have the hope and deserved quality life,but not in the shape of a knife and string of the gun. Boundaries are marked in stone in each boarder to develope and make it strong in any purposes not to commercialized and sell our pride . The chaos of manipulated system in our barbaric civil constitution past and present times where the league of those good academics business can allowed to know from bottom line thru it’s core .,and for them it Is the blind fold of justice and discrimination regardless of proof and prey.

in behalf of High Standard covered through inherit superiority common Era stabilize the basic reform in ways aspects ;… Fair Judgement manifest Centralization in today modern half of civilization kicking forward in reality base in life cycle of Filipino core values. .celebrating every tradition,cultures still under the Sun, while covered by a wide edge of sky is just by the hands of Foolish Forces in our day by day living in our Nation. Preamble is the heart of every Filipino And laws are the brains of our land. But we’re is the essence of life of Filipino? And that is the stake of the state.
