Independence Day

The country is celebrating today its Independence Day. It was on the year 1898 when the first Philippine flag was raised and its national anthem was played. Many people including government officials, employees and students participate in nationwide parades. This is always declared as non working holiday but since it fall on Sunday it becomes  a weekend holiday instead. I hope the celebration will always remind each and every Filipino about the essence of  sovereignty and the liberty that our ancestors and heroes had been fighting long time ago. Happy Independence day!
