It’s our Independence Day! Proud to be a FILIPINO! Araw ng Kalayaan!
The Philippine Declaration of independence was proclaimed on June 12, 1898 in Cavite II el Viejo (now Kawit), Cavite, Philippines. With the public reading of the Act of the Declaration of independence, Filipino revolutionary forces under General Emilio Aguinaldo proclaimed the sovereignty and independence of the Philippine Islands from the colonial rule of Spain.
Today marks the 10th Year of the unmemorable tragedy in New York, the attack of the Twin towers. Where was I during that time?
I was at home watching a tv series. During the commercial break, I started shifting the channel randomly. The news was on. The first plane just hit one of the towers. We all got shocked of the news. All of us were focused about what just happened. We can’t believe that a plane will just crush into a building like that. Then the 2nd plane hit. I was trembling already. In my mind, I was thinking of all the people that were on the plane and was still inside the building. My dad said that the target was no other than the tower itself, and for sure terrorists are behind this vicous act. I remeber my mom crying for the loss of thousands of people. Then the towers collapse. That was the moment I started to shed tears. I couldn’t beleive what I was seeing over the TV. It felt like a cut right in the middle of my stomach. Who would do such a terrible thing? A person who don’t care at all will surely do this thing, I said to myself.
God knows everything. And who ever was behind this is dead already as we all know. The lives of people who was stolen that day will remain in God’s kingdom forever. Peace everyone!
