115th Independence Day (June 12, 2013)

The Significance of Independence Day

Philippine’s Independence day is a large celebratory event held across the country.
Commemorating Independence Day reminds us of the courage and struggle of the men and women who paved the way for the birth of our nation. Our ancestors add great sacrifices to witness that day in 1898, when the Philippine flag was raised and the national anthem was played to mark the proclamation of our nation’s independence.

The importance of Independence Day to Filipinos is a like the sun that gives us life and nourished us. Our forefathers had suffered mutilation, gruesome death punishments, the women had been raped and maltreated. As a survivor on that war and colonial rule, our noble heroes was seeking for a huge blast, a revenge that would unleashed and would put the abusive ruling of Spain to an end.

Our noble heroes who once shed blood and gave their lives to save us from the grueling Spanish reigned. Their memories remind us, the fight, the hope and the dream to free us from the abusive colonial rule of Spain. Spain had been defeated from the Spanish-American war at Manila bay.

We will also recognize the great courage and bravery of Filipino heroes like Dr. Jose Rizal, Bonifacio and the Katipuneros in defending the rights of every Filipino people and for fighting for our freedom and sovereignty.

One hundred and fourteen years after, since we are celebrating the 115th , we are called to remain united and steadfast to the ideals of freedom and democracy. Last year’s theme, Kalayaan: Pananagutan ng Bayan para sa Tuwid na Daan, and with this year’s theme ,Kalayaan 2013: Ambagan Tungo sa Malawakang Kaunlaran, prompts us to bear in mind that Every Filipino, wherever he or she may be, has a role to play in the nation, in our province and in our municipality of Lila’s development. Our hard-earned independence comes with responsibility to build a prosperous nation founded on truth, justice and equity.

Their fight- is our fight! Their revenge is our victory! Mabuhay at Maligayang Pagdiriwang ng ating Kalayaan!
