What frees the Filipino? Netizens share their answers
MANILA, Philippines – Every 12th of June, Filipinos celebrate the country’s independence from Spanish rule. Today, we celebrate freedom and our deliverance from foreign power. Today, we celebrate our identity as Filipinos and the liberated Philippines.
Freedom in the modern sense, however, can mean many things to many people. In today’s fast paced world, anything can hold anyone back. It is then up to us to emancipate ourselves from these figurative shackles that bind us. How does the modern Filipino do this? How would you do this?
In anticipation of Philippine Independence Day, we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers this question: What frees you from the things that hold you back? We were met with a barrage of answers. We picked out the ones we liked best and compiled them into the list below.
