Press Release
August 27, 2018


We commemorate National Heroes Day recognizing the sacrifices of Rizal, Bonifacio and all those long gone who gave us the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today.

Equally important is the need to celebrate heroism in its smaller everyday forms. The office worker, local entrepreneur, teacher, artist or OFW who toils hard to earn a decent living for one's family while also assisting others is no less a hero as a soldier who dies for flag and country. Being a diligent student, a dependable parent or a law-abiding citizen requires equal parts nobility of character and determination to achieve either a personal or collective goal, which are no less heroic acts.

We should honor heroism every day because the Filipino performs heroic feats, big and small, every day.
