Gov Alvarado: Continue the fight for freedom
Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado, during the Independence Day celebration held at the Barasoain Church, encouraged Bulakenyos to continue the fight for freedom.
The Bulacan politiko also urged Bulakenyos to acknowledge those sacrificed their lives for independence.
“Malaon ng natapos ang labanan, subalit sa kasalukuyan, kailangan pa rin nating makipaglaban. Ang kalaban natin ay ating mga sarili at ang ating pagkakahati-hati sa maraming bagay. Pinapaalala sa atin ng Hunyo 12, 1898 na walang anumang balakid ang maaaring humadlang sa ating mga adhikain kung tayo ay nagkakabuklod bilang sambayanan at mayroong iisang puso’t damdamin,” Alvarado said.
Senator Loren Legarda, who was guest of honor, said diversity should be used as a tool for unity.
“Let not our differences in religion or in beliefs be the dividing force that will divide us as a nation. On the contrary, it brings about our richness, our ethnicity and our differences. It brings about the wealth of our nation,” Legarda said.
Legarda also also asked for prayers for Philippine troops fighting for peace in Mindanao.
“Let us dedicate today’s Independence Day celebration to those who have invested their lives so that we would have freedom, not just for Marawi but for the whole country,” Legarda said.
