Friday (June 12) marks the 111th anniversary of the Philippine Independence.
I wasn’t born yet when General Emilio Aguinaldo, the inaugural president of the Philippine Republic, unfurled the country’s flag for the very first time in public at the balcony of his house in Kawit, Cavite.
Julian Felipe, according to historians, never carried a gun, but the music he composed became the Philippine national anthem.
Anyway, from what I could remember when my history teachers in high school recreated the story behind that historic landmark of our nation, it was exciting, inspiring and filled with hope.
On June 12, various key cities in the country will surely be displaying mini flags of the Philippines in celebration of the country’s independence from Spain.
Coinciding the date of our Independence Day celebration is the resumption of our Youth service at Victory U-Belt on 7 p.m.
It will be historic as well, especially as students will be trooping back to their respective campuses for another exciting, faith-filled school year.
If you’re a student studying in any of the universities or colleges within the University Belt, you are strategically placed there to make history, beginning in your campus.
Hundreds of small groups will converge in canteens, fastfood restaurants and campus hangouts—all with the single purpose of knowing God and enjoying a relationship with Him.
Be part of this great and historic moment!
