Sen. Bam Aquino on the liberation of Marawi City

This marks the end of a dark period in Philippine history, when terrorists sowed fear, violence and devastation in the City of Marawi.

Our Armed Forces deserve our utmost praise and gratitude for this victory and for sacrificing their lives to bring peace to our country.

We also commend members of our local government units, government agencies, civil society organizations, and the private sector who took in evacuees and provided support to families who lost their homes and livelihood.

Mindanao, together with the entire nation, saw violence and despair during the siege.

Now, we must illuminate the hopeful Filipino spirit.

It's time to work together to heal, rebuild and create prosperity in Marawi City.
