June 12 is Philippine Independence Day. I am proud to be a Filipino! And I kid you not!

June 12 is National Independence Day

Ako ay Pilipino
Ang dugo'y maharlika
Likas sa aking puso
Adhikaing kay ganda
Sa Pilipinas na aking bayan
Lantay na Perlas ng Silanganan
Wari'y natipon ang kayamanan ng Maykapal

Bigay sa 'king talino
Sa mabuti lang laan
Sa aki'y katutubo
Ang maging mapagmahal

Ako ay Pilipino,
Ako ay Pilipino
Isang bansa isang diwa
Ang minimithi ko
Sa Bayan ko't Bandila
Laan Buhay ko't Diwa
Ako ay Pilipino,
Pilipinong totoo
Ako ay Pilipino,
Ako ay Pilipino
Taas noo kahit kanino
Ang Pilipino ay Ako!

Yes, there is much to be proud about our people and our heritage. May all the best in the Filipino people prevail!

I made an earlier post at Philippine Trip: Manila but had to consequently correct the fact that June 12 is not an non-working holiday.

We will still remember the significance of the day, though.

i dunno if this is still being sung in schools during flag ceremonies until now.. naalala ko tuloy elementary days ko. most of the students i know masaya pag dating ng june 12 dahil alng pasok.. sana ma-inculcate talaga ng mga teachers sa mga kukuti ng GenX ang significance ng date na to noh.

THE ANiTOKiD said...

Yes, Mae. Teachers have a great role in instilling love for one's freedom and country. The peace and welfare of the GenX and coming generations of Filipinos correlate with true patriotism. True patriotism: When right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.


Happy Indephilippinedence day! (I thought it had a nice ring to it). I added you to my viralink. If you wouldn't mind doing the favor, I would be grateful. :)
