We salute and celebrate our national heroes today, from the men and women who helped shape our nation during the Philippine Revolution to the Filipinos who stood for freedom and peace on EDSA 30 years ago. They all serve as inspirations to all of us, we who are currently living in difficult times of poverty and fear.
Today is a reminder that any one of us can be a hero: a farmer, a doctor, a wife. Let us use this day to celebrate not only our historical heroes, but the heroes in our everyday lives.
