Le independence day has yet again come upon my country(the Philippines). People greet or shout “Happy Independence Day“, but are we really free?
Day 12: Dr. Jose Rizal (our country’s national hero)
Free from what you ask?
Free to take pictures anywhere? Try taking your dslr inside the malls.
Free from the corruption that stinks in our government?
Free from the dreaded commutes due to the hellish transportation “system” of buses and jeeps?
Free to love someone with the same gender without getting bashed by peers or the church?
We must learn to COMPLAIN,you have a voice then USE IT. If we want the government and the church to listen. I’m not saying to go out and start a picket or a rally of sorts, no no no, you use and do what you can in your own way.
Write a poem, compose a song, draw a poster, design something to help make our country beautiful, then SHOW it to your friends, SHARE it with the world.
YOU(to my Filipino readers) be the judge of this, how do you react to Independence day, what would YOU do?
