It's Independence Day today, and it was greeted by a rousing rain to start off the day.
114 years of Philippine Independence, and we still have a long way to go in our growth as a country. While positive steps are being taken, it will take a massive effort and a great amount of political will to help our countrymen learn to stand on their own two feet, and realize that, in order to help our country, we have to love it wholeheartedly and be willing to sacrifice so that our country can be truly great.
There's a lot to love about the Philippines. Let's not waste the effort and sacrifice our forefathers made so that we may be free.
