Happy Independence Day Philippines!

* ~ ♥ ~ * ~ ♥ ~ *

celebrating our
one hundred eleventh year
of independence

It's a holiday here as we are celebrating our
Independence Day. I will not talk on how we got our independence here but feel free to click on the link if you want to know more. All I know is we owe this day to the brave souls who laid their lives for our freedom. Every June 12 I have only one prayer, and it was best said by the character Elias in Jose Rizal's book El Filibusterismo --

“Nothing will remain of me. I die without seeing the dawn gleam over my native land…You who are destined to see it, salute it, do not forget those who have fallen during the night.

God bless the Philippines and the Filipino people!
