Bataan solon exhorts volunteerism on Nat’l Heroes’ Day
Bataan 2nd District Rep. Jose Enrique “Joet” Garcia III is exhorting volunteerism, especially among those he regard as modern-day heroes, as the country celebrates National Heroes’ Day on Monday.
In a video message posted on the 1Bataan Facebook account, Garcia said that as heroes of the nation’s past are being honored, he also recognizes those working in government, especially the front liners, as modern-day heroes.
Among them, he said, are teachers, policemen, and health workers.
“Sila yung ating modernong mga bayani. Kaya sana, pagbutihin pa natin ang pakikipagkawanggawa,” Garcia said.
The solon also made special mention of Bataan as a place of “bayani and banal.” The province played a major role in Philippine history, especially during World War II, thus the erection of the Dambana ng Kagitingan on Mt. Samat where the annual celebration of the Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor) is mainly held.
