Freedom

Today marks the 119th year of my Philippines’ independence and freedom from the Spanish rule. As we celebrate our independence day, may we be truly free not just from foreign colonization but may our hearts be also free from all hurt, envy, anger, and hopelessness some groups have caused our kababayans in the southern part of the country. May we be truly united not just on this day but every day by being a Filipino to our kapwa Filipino. I hope for a brighter and safer Philippines in the years to come.

Happy Independence Day!

Much love,
D
