31 August 2015
President Benigno S. Aquino III led the country’s commemoration of the National Heroes Day in honor of all Filipinos who took to stand, rendered sacrifice and offered their lives for the sake of their countrymen and the whole nation.
With the theme, “Bayaning Pilipino Noon at Ngayon: Ang Simula at Tagapagpatuloy ng Malawakang Pagbabago”, President Aquino called on all Filipinos to join hands together as one nation. He also expressed confidence that with his kababayans beginning to do something so extraordinary, they will continue the journey to their desired destination. “Maaabot din ng Pilipino ang pinapangarap nating magandang bukas para sa minamahal nating Pilipinas,” the President said.
Moreover, the Chief Executive emphasized that each citizen is called to do his or her part and continue the battle that his administration began for the country’s betterment as the people honor and pay tribute to the sacrifices offered by their fellow Filipino heroes.
“Kung may kahit isang taong titindig at haharang sa kanila para sabihing ‘Mali ang ginagawa ninyo. Hindi ako papayag na pagsamantalahan ninyo ang Pilipino,’ hindi po bang tiyak pong mapapatid ang siklo ng panlalamang at kawalang-katarungan,” President Aquino stated.
