OT: 112th Philippine Independence Day

Dear Online Diary,

"A nation is born into freedom on the day when such a people, moulded into a nation by a process of cultural evolution and sense of oneness born of common struggle and suffering, announces to the world that it asserts its natural right to liberty and is ready to defend it with blood, life, and honor."
- Diosdado Macapagal, Former President of the Philippines

Incidentally, today marks the 112th Independence celebration of the Philippines and the last Independence Day celebration of Macapagal’s daughter as the country’s president, Mrs. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, before President-elect Noynoy Aquino assumes office by the end of the month.

The government arranged a day of re-discovering the Philippine Independence at the Quirino Grandstand in Luneta. As part of the program, there’s going to be a float parade depicting the things Mrs. Arroyo did for the country. In addition, there’s going to be a film showing, cultural shows, job fair, fireworks display and free entrance to the National Museum.

As the Philippines marks another milestone, I’m digging Google’s icon today:

Happy Independence Day, everyone! Mabuhay!
