PISTA SA NAYON CELEBRATION
CELEBRATING OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY
June 09, 2007
Bear Creek Park, Euless, TX
Today we celebrated our 109th anniversary of Philippine Independence Day with a parade to honor our ancestors and a free festival full of fun and lots of food for the whole family. It was a huge success with lot of Filipinos present for the celebration.
Lets us reflect for a moment on what President Arroyo said during her speech at Luneta Park last July 12 during our Independence Day Celebration :
"It is our obligation to our ancestors, especially to the heroes who poured out their blood and laid down their lives for our freedom, that we unite and strive to give a better life to every Filipino.
Our remembrance of our heroes would be more meaningful if we show our own heroism in fighting the challenges of the present time, the progress of our economy, our continued march to progress. This is the key to our total independence -- the freedom of our people from the oppression of poverty. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo
