The Philippine flag has been a symbol of our freedom through all generations that had passed these promising country. It has been treasured and loved by patriotic countrymen and the likes, but are we really standing by what it signify? are we really free…..
Recall history, we’ve fought for our flag to be flung anywhere, we sacrificed, shed our blood, and defended our dear nation from all the invaders that attempted to colonized us. Yes we’ve won over them, or was it freedom? Why do we still suffer racism, prejudiced by our fellow country men. These mentalities that had clung in every one of us turned out to be invaders themselves that shamed our flag and what it symbolizes. we are still at war with our individual self and the world full of wretched people that wanted not more but wretchedness for others.
We had been free from the strong hold of the Spaniards, they had imprisoned our country for a century and more, we had their traits and cultured copied and pasted in our minds like a son to his father, we were freed by the Americans but they were no better, colonizing our government, stealing gold from us and gaining our trust so that we will remain loyal to them as slaves are to their masters. We are so stupid following them like dogs, eating their garbage……
When will the filipino people wake up and realize they were becoming someone when they should be themselves. when will they embrace the true spirit of patriotism, the true significance of our flag…..
