Independence day

Today marks our country’s 112th anniversary of our Independence day. It is also the last Independence day celebration as president for Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo as president-elect Noynoy Aquino assumes office on the end of the month. The government arranged a day of rediscovering our independence at Luneta Grandstand.

I don’t want to mock if we do really are an independent country. Let me just leave you with our former president Diosdado Macapagal says:

“A nation is born into freedom on the day when such a people, moulded into a nation by a process of cultural evolution and sense of oneness born of common struggle and suffering, announces to the world that it asserts its natural right to liberty and is ready to defend it with blood, life, and honor.”

And oh! Mr. Google is celebrating our Independence as well.
