Veritas vos liberabit
(“the truth shall set you free”)
April 9, 2013 is the day the Philippines celebrate the fall of Bataan or otherwise known today as Araw ng Kagitingan or Day of Valor. Though this post is not going to be a history lesson, I just felt that I needed to recognize the holiday even though we were not there to witness or undergo the event. For many veterans of war, today, I commemorate your duty to our nation and thank you for your dedication for the people.
Also, on a lighter note, today is something that I wish to also mark as a special time in my life. Over the past few months, I have constantly debated about it and finally, I’ve come to the conclusion. Let the truth set me free.
