Independence Day 2008

Independence Day 2008 in Manila was marked with austere measures. The official reason given - the economic crisis demands that we observe the holiday with austere measures. I strongly disagree with this position.

It is a mockery of the sacrifices that our patriots have made in defense of freedom and independence. This action is consistent though with a "history absent minded" culture that we Filipinos have.

Pity our heroes....
