When I was young I used to take part of the celebration of the Philippine Independence Day. In this day I usually go to the park and watch activities such as the flag raising, variety show and the parade. There are lots flags all over the city and to each houses. There is one giant flag in our park. In school we create our own Philippine flag and post it outside the classroom. Our teacher even taught us how to sang the National Anthem well and understand the meaning of the song and she also taught us the value of patriotism and recall to us about how our national heroes fought for our country for our freedom.This day marks the beginning of freedom and that our Filipino heroes showed and proved to us that we can do it. We must love and protect our country and give peace to each and everyone of us. Let us not waste all the things that our heroes have done for us. Mabuhay and Happy Independence Day to all.
