Veteran talent manager and columnist Lolit Solis is in full support of former senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. in his plans to run for Senate in the 2019 polls. In fact, the detained Revilla filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) today, Oct. 17, via his wife Bacoor Mayor Lani Mercado and son Cavite Vice Gov. Jolo in hopes of reclaiming a Senate seat in the upcoming elections.

Earlier this month, Solis expressed that Revilla was better off returning to show biz instead of politics. As per Solis, he should take a break from politics and focus on his family. In her latest post about Revilla on Oct. 16, however, Solis appeared to have changed her tone, as she wrote that people must let Revilla dream for himself.

“You try to break a [person’s] spirit pag sinasabi mo pangarap lang iyan, hindi matutupad,” she wrote. “Pero dapat hayaan natin siya mangarap, dapat pabayaan natin siya sa kanyang pangarap.”

Sa isang napanood ko Salve, isang bagay na ‘di mo dapat alisin sa isang tao ay iyong mangarap. At isa sa pinakamasakit na iyon pangarap mo harangin at hindi bigyan ng katuparan. Dreams are sometimes your escape to reality, you shoot the moon, the one you hang on pag nasa edge ka na. You try to break a person spirit pag sinasabi mo pangarap lang iyan, hindi matutupad. Pero dapat hayaan natin siya mangarap, dapat pabayaan natin siya sa kanyang pangarap. Nang ikulong nila si Bong Revilla for almost 5 years now, dun ko nakita ang patience niya, dun ko nakita ang strength of character niya, iyon pagiging passive niya sa pagtanggap sa naging kapalaran niya, ang matibay niyang pananalig sa Diyos at sa justice. Dun ko natanggap na isa itong tao na trustworthy, isang tao na puwede ko sandalan pag kailangan ko ang tibay. For almost 5 years, they tried to break his spirit, they tried to take away his dreams, they tried to pulverize his character, but they failed. I have not seen him break down even once, believing the truth will come out, believing he is the fall guy that they cannot destroy. Kahit ang ama niya na si Ramon Revilla Sr. gusto nang iwan ni Bong ang pulitika. Kahit ako inisip ko, nandiyan ka pa rin sa Crame, nakakulong, bakit gusto mo pa pumasok uli, tumakbo uli? Ano pa ba gusto mong patunayan? But his dreams are different. His faith never wavered. It made him stronger that he can still feel the faith, the love, the trust of his fellow Caviteno. Braveheart. Believer. Survivor. All that and more. I together with Mang Ramon will not stop Bong Revilla to see his dreams, to fulfill his promise, to continue his love. Bong Revilla for Senator? Fight. Why not? #instatalk #lolitkulit #71naako ❤️🙏🏻

Solis shared that she has seen Revilla’s patience and strength of character in the more than four years he’s been detained inside Camp Crame.  Moreover, he hs been passive in accepting his fate and remained trusting in  divine justice.

“Dun ko natanggap na isa itong tao na trustworthy, isang tao na puwede ko sandalan pag kailangan ko ang tibay…” she said. “I have not seen him break down even once, believing the truth will come out, believing he is the fall guy that they cannot destroy.”

She continued to say that even Bong’s father, Ramon Revilla Sr., wants him to leave politics. “Kahit ako inisip ko, nandiyan ka pa rin sa Crame, nakakulong, bakit gusto mo pa pumasok uli, tumakbo uli? Ano pa ba gusto mong patunayan?”

Revilla’s dreams, however, Solis maintained, “are different.”

“Braveheart. Believer. Survivor. All that and more,” Solis said. “I together with Mang Ramon will not stop Bong Revilla to see his dreams, to fulfill his promise, to continue his love. Bong Revilla for Senator? Fight. Why not?”  /ra
