Land of the Free

Araw ng kalayaan_FLF (1)

Our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal once said that men are born equal, naked and without chains. They were not created by God to be enslaved, neither were they endowed with intelligence in order to be misled, nor adorned with reason to be fooled by others.

Bullets destroyed Rizal, but his brilliant mind destroyed an empire. His words planted the seed of inspiration, courage and heroism on the hearts of every Filipino soldier who battled against the tyranny of the Spaniards. And the freedom that was stolen from us, was taken back by our heroes. On this day in history, June 12, 1898, was the day that finalized the end of slavery and oppression.

We are born equal and free.  Today, we celebrate the 117th year of our freedom.
